Fenelon on Education - Cambridge Texts and Studies in the History of Education (Paperback)H. C. Barnard (author)
Paperback 204 Pages / Published: 30/04/2009
- Not available
The learned, pious and gentle Archbishop Fenelon (1651-1715), author of Telemaque and royal tutor, was one of the great European educationists and especially important for his writings on the education of girls; but his work is little known to students of the history and theory of education because suitable translations of the main texts have been lacking. Professor Barnard now makes them available in English, with a substantial introduction and notes. The introduction gives a biography and character sketch of Fenelon, against the religious, political and educational background of his times; a second section analyses Fenelon's educational theories.
