Synopsis

The "International Education Series" brings together Western writings upon educational subjects from ancient times to the First World War. The range of writings cover practical, theoretical and historical education. Taken together these historical and critical texts provide a theoretical framework for the practice of teaching. Many of these texts are very uncommon and should be of use to both historians of education, social history and educationalists. Originally published between 1890 and 1915, the series was devised and edited by William Torey Harris (1835-1909), United States Commissioner of Education. Harris wrote on philosophy, and in particular Hegel and Hegelianism, as well as being a prominent educationalist. He was an active public lecturer, leader of the St Louis movement, editor of Wedster's "Dictionary" and of America's first regular devoted to philosophy ("The Journal of Speculative Philosophy, 1867-93), and author of some 500 articles. For this series, Harris provided introductions, analyses and commentaries to the individual volumes.

The first collection in the series, "History of Education", focuses on the biographies of the most remarkable European and American educational innovators and reformers through the ages. Together with the historical and polemical works, this set provides a clear picture of the lessons that were to be learned about providing a good education in the 20th century.
