One of the writings provides a perceptive look at opportunities for communication between children and adults. The final and longest essay is an outline of the author's general theory of education, and should stimulate serious discussion among all who are concerned with the quality of schools and the relationship between teachers and children.

The science and ethics of equality by David Hawkins( Book )

11 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the focus is upon education as the vehicle through which individual differences must be reconciled in the light of a moral commitment to the principles of equality. The axiom of equality is reviewed as it was laid down by philosophers in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. More recent developments in the philosophy of equality are discussed. Darwinian theory is translated into a new context. It is concluded that innate (biological and racial) human differences do not provide valid factual support for distinctions we have long known in morals, politics, or care and education of the young. The range of real human differences of major importance in educational theory and practice are analyzed. An attempt is made to state an ethically and scientifically valid egalitarian position which is, at the same time, a challenge to further research and practical educational effort. It is asserted that true equality can be attained if our educational system expands beyond mere "schooling" to encourage learning which takes into account the diversity of human creativity.
