Excerpt from A Study of Modern Educational Theory and Its Applications"For a purpose is, in the first place, a principle of limitation. It determines the end for which, and therefore the limits within which, an activity is to be carried on. It divides what is worth doing from what is not, and settles the scale upon which what is worth doing ought to be done. It is, in the second place, a principle of unity, because it supplies a common end to which efforts can be directed, and submits interests, which would otherwise conflict, to the judgment of an over-ruling object. It is, in the third place, a principle of apportionment or distribution. It assigns to the different parties or groups engaged in a common undertaking the place which they are to occupy in carrying it out." (R. H. Tawney, The Sickness of an Acquisitive Society.)What Mr. Tawney states here in connection with the need of industry to be purposive is equally true of education, though in writing of education convention demands that we talk of the "aim" rather than the "purpose." It is the aim of this book to show why education must be purposive in that it is a means to an end, although the statement of this end varies with the angle from which it is regarded.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
