The History of Education

Few fields have a less adequate understanding of their own histories than does education. This itself is a cause of inertia and inadequacy in education, both in the status quo but also amongst innovators. There is no understanding why or wherefore without understanding whence.

This project is dedicated to understanding the history of education, particularly its intellectual history: pedagogy, philosophy, and ideological patterns and arguments across the timeline.

There is a particular emphasis on understanding the intellectual roots and reception of Montessori education.
