Education. Vol. I.: The Philosophy of Education. Third Edition - Enlarged.
Oryshkewych, Ostap E.
In this philosophical treatise, the author decries the dehumanizing forces impinging on people and urges revitalized education with a personal thrust as the best way of correcting the problem. He proceeds from the idea that "the present purpose of education is to train a professional in the shortest possible period", while it "neglects to educate persons of value or stature", using, moreover, "artificial and unnatural methods." Developed in separate sections are the need for philosophy, the role and purpose of education, teaching as a profession, the social heritage in education, the role of will, morals as the basis of education, idealism in education, esthetic education, ethical education, civic and social education, education for health and productivity, the method of instruction, and the role of experience. A bibliography is included. (MNS)
