I shall take great pleasure in calling
the attention of my classes to this book,
and to the list published by your house,
which seems to me composed of very val-
uable works.

Mary Sheldon Barnes, formerly
Prof. 1x111 WellesleyCoU.yMass.;

This is a very exceptional work, in that it
is at the same time philosophical and
practical. 1 feel as if. in the midst of all
tin- fragmentary, erratic, commonplace
stuff that is usually relegated to the name
of Pedagogi :s, something worthy, clear,
and intellectually inspiring had at length
appeared. For myself, I wish to under-



stand it thoroughly from cover to cover -,
for while I may not always agree with it,
still it will compel me to define more
clearly just what I do think — a most val-
uable intellectual service.



The Nation : The book shows the
influence of psychology in determining all
methods of pedagogy, and moves towards
the practical spirit of modern times in that
it has no speculative problems to solve,
and no special intellectual ends like those
of philosophy to condition the mode of
education it defends.

New York World: His ideal of life

is so high, his motives are everywhere so
noble, that the very perusal of his book
will be itself a sort of education to parents
and teachers. And we should say that
no parent or teacher having at heart the
highest good of the children committed to
his care can afford to be wi thi 1 : t ! 1 i s 1 >ook.
It will impress those who read it with the
importance of education and of its far-
reaching power, and render teachers earn-
est in neir work. The translation is well
done. Mrs. Grey, who, a most excellent
Italian scholar, has come to the work with
every advantage.
