This is the most intelligible rendering of Froebel’s Chief Writings which seeks to give exact meaning, but not his own phraseology, which is often found confusing and unnecessarily prolix. The thoughts of the author have been presented in this classic translation in a true and precise manner. Although the translators have condensed this greatest of Froebel’s works they have omitted little.
The second part of the book consists of extracts from Froebel’s writings on the Kindergarten, so chosen as to show their spirit and general method. In the Introduction the translators have shown the relation of Froebel to the general stream of educational thought, and to discriminate between the vital truth in his doctrines and the excrescences due to his time and personality.
The value of Froebel to the educators of to-day lies in his spirit and in his general conception of the educative process, and that the translators have been able to present fully and fairly.
