About This Book
Originally published in 1972, the emphasis of this book is on psychological and cultural understanding of education, in terms of persons and relationships, rather than processes. The book:
- Deals with issues of continuing relevance for educational thought and practice, such as the education and training of teachers and diminishing the gap between schooling and education.
- Considers the nature and function of educational research, the conflict between arts and sciences in education and the concept of guidance.
- Examines teaching in its interpersonal context, and at the revolt of youth and the sexual revolution.
- Assesses the influence of Freud, Winifred Mercier, William Boyd and Herbert Read.
