KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a fairly erudite place of work, this volume in the series of Terry Lectures. Maritain is now professor of philosophy at Columbia. In these lectures, he develops his theory of education; he defines and analyzes the misconceptions, he states what he considers the aims of education, he discusses the paradoxes, and views the progressive education conception and misconception. He recognizes the opposition between knowledge value and training value in curriculum. And he poses the educational problems of today and the challenge of tomorrow's reeducation. Limited market.
