“These two 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.
This volume is designed as a text; hence the sources are classified into periods, in order to afford the student aid in their interpretation, and each group of sources is accompanied by a brief introductory sketch indicating the general setting of the period to which it belongs and the main principles of interpretation to be followed. These introductory chapters furnish little more than a syllabus for study; the interpretation is purposely left in a large degree to the student.
The book 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.”
