The Ideology of Vicktor Lowenfeld: A Review of Research.
McWhinnie, Harold J.
The purpose of this paper was to present and update the evaluation of the ideas of Vicktor Lowenfeld and his place in the history of art education. This task was undertaken in light of developments that have taken place in the decades since his death. Among those developments are: (1) efforts to educate all individuals in the least retrictive environment; (2) concern for educational opportunities in the arts for all, especially the handicapped and elderly; (3) new insights into the nature and functioning of the brain; and (4) the general concern for education for a quality of life and better environment for all. Lowenfeld's views on creativity and the creative potential movement of the 1960s are reflected in such developments. It is a credit to Lowenfeld's accomplishments, as well as to his essential genius, that one after so long can return over and over again to his work for inspiration both philosophical and psychological.
