“These volumes supply a long-felt need in the teaching of the history of education. The Source Book, which was the first to appear, covers the Greek and Roman period, and is the first of a series of such source-books intended to supplement the Text-Book., which has just appeared. The Source Book, without attempting a definition either of history or of education, presents the most important selections from the literary sources relating to education “in the accepted historic meaning of the term-that of a definitely organized institutional attempt to realize in individuals the ideals controlling a given people.”
The book, in other words, aims to meet the needs of the average student of the history of education-needs which involve, on the one hand, a widening and deepening of the general background of knowledge of human culture, as achieved in the successive efforts of the race toward self-instruction, and, on the other, hand, a more definite conception of the meaning, nature, process, and purpose of education which will “lift him above the narrow prejudices, the restricted outlook, the foibles, and- the petty trials of the average schoolroom, and afford him the fundamentals of an everlasting faith as broad as human nature and as deep as the life of the race.
Very suggestive and helpful, in the reviewer’s opinion, is the treatment of education as adjustment, and an interpretation of the history of educational practice and theory from this point of view”.
