Ideals and Democracy
Excerpt from Ideals and Democracy: An Essay in ModernismThe title of this book is its own best introduction. The theme should be of interest to all classes and conditions of people. The treatment is unpretentious, brief, informal. The reader who anticipates new and startling revelation in these pages is doomed to disappointment, but the hope is expressed that old material may appear in new relations. It is the author's purpose to recall to our minds some very common truths - plain, important, neglected - and in a somewhat uncommon manner lead us more fully to appreciate and ply certain of the great fundamental principles that lie at the base of our social structure. That the desired point of view may be brought out, and in order to present the subject in a distinctly human rather than in a purely professional manner, it has been found convenient to be simple in form of statement and to use many illustrations drawn from personal observation or experience.Any far-reaching study of the purpose and application of ideals as the basis of democracy would seem to begin in the school. Such study and appreciation must have their foundation in education. Thorough recognition has been accorded this fact. The results of a modest attempt to interpret the biological and social forces underlying education, to evaluate their contentions, and to enlarge and make them practical for the use of the teacher will receive treatment in a subsequent volume.Of excellent books for teachers there is no lack.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
