Acting to Protect the Cultural and Legal Foundations of the Family in an Increasingly Alien Intellectual and Legal Environment.
Flinders, Neil J.; Hilton, Matthew M. F.
Family Perspective, v20 n2 p105-115 1986
Western intellectual heritage is characterized by a gradual but significant shift from a supernatural to a naturalistic worldview between 1880 and 1920. With the ascendancy of naturalistic worldview, various conflicting ideas emerge about the place and proper function of the family and the educational institutions. The social and legal implications of these cultural conflicts are discussed. Implications for legal and social action aimed at strengthening the tie between the family and traditional education are identified. (Author)
