The Autodidact in Defense of Himself: Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Knut Hamsun.
Buttry, Dolores
Journal of General Education, v32 n1 p20-39 Spr 1980
Describes Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Knut Hamsun as self-educated men who never ceased to warn of the evils of formal education. Quoting from their works, considers their feelings toward education as revealed in Rousseau's "Emile," with its description of ideal education, and in the ill effects of education on Hamsun's characters.
