HISTORY OF EDUCATIONPART I EDUCATION OF THE ANCIENTSORIENTAL NATIONSEven savages have to learn how to live, and this process is really education, but a description of such primitive education, however interesting it might be from an antiquarian standpoint, could have no legitimate place in a treatise designed for the normal school and college curriculum of the twentieth century.The same things have been said, and with some justice, about the space devoted to the second stage of education, that of "barbarism," best represented by the Oriental types of China, Shemite Asia, India, Persia, Egypt, but there is a difference. The very "one-sidedness" and "strangeness" of these Oriental systems challenge the twentieth-century mind, and thus make them good "first subjects" in the great process of apperception by which we finally learn to "think" our century. But when that much has been said, we must admit that the briefest possible treatment is all that good pedagogy requires.Table of Contents CONTENTS; PART I; education of the ancients; CHAPTEB PAGE; I Education of the Ancient Egyptians 2; II Education of the Ancient Chinese 12; III Education of the Ancient Hindus 18; TV Education of the Ancient Persians 25; V Education of the Ancient Shemites 31; VI Education of the Ancient Hebrews 35; VII Education of the Ancient Greeks 45; VIII Education of the Ancient Romans 8i; PART II; christian education IX Christian Education100; X Christian Education (continued) 123; XI The Renaissance159; »*; vu; viii CONTENTS; PART III; THE REFORMATION; CHAPTER PACE; XII The Reformation180; XIII The Jansenists, the Christian Brothers,; and the Pietists221; PART IV; REALISM; XIV Realism249; PART V; MODERN TIMES; XV Naturalism 290; XVI The Psychological Movement 305; XVII Present National Systems of Education 336; XVIII The United States 374; XIX Tendencies 423; Index457; HISTORY OF EDUCATION; PART I
