Abstract:

"I have taken occasion, with the approval of Professor Dewey, to put together a few of his contributions which have not been published in this country, and which would not come within the reach of English teachers unless brought out in an inexpensive volume of this kind. The first of these, which is at present out of print in the United States, also gives the title to the volume, and I am sanguine enough to believe that it will in days to come be recognized as an educational classic. The rest of the book consists of a series of essays taken from The Elementary School Record. [1 have added, in an Appendix, particulars relating to this and other volumes, for the sake of readers who are able to pursue their enquiries further.] The Record consists of a series of monographs sketching the courses of study which were pursued in this University elementary school. Most of the numbers are out of print, and I have no information as to whether it is likely to be re-issued. I understand that when Professor Dewey left Chicago a year ago to take the Chair of Philosophy in Columbia, this school changed its character and became incorporated with the larger Institute which Chicago owes to Francis Parker; hence it may not be the intention of Professor Dewey or of his late colleagues to republish these papers, although the entire publication is of unique interest to students of education. The series of papers which I have selected are, in reality, studies in genetic psychology. When read in succession as here printed, they afford a view of certain features of children's minds, as changing in aspect between the ages of four and twelve. Some teachers, in their anxiety to reap a harvest without the delays of spring and summer, would rather have been supplied with the detailed courses of study pursued by the children; but they will be better advised to fasten their attention first upon the phenomena of child-life, and then copy Professor Dewey's example and seek to discover, by experiment, whether his interpretations are of universal validity. And if I had reprinted these courses of study, many of the details would have been of little use to us in England: they contain those local and temporary details to which I have referred above, and would serve rather to distract the student's attention from the main problem"--Introduction.
