The Greatest Educators Ever.
The greatest educators ever.
Flanagan, Frank M.
Continuum Publishing Group
Flanagan (education, Department of Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick.) traces the evolution of Western educational thought and practice through essays on 18 of the most exemplary teachers the world has ever known. Some of the educational pioneers profiled include Socrates, Jesus, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, John Dewey, Maria Montessori, and Martin Buber. Flanagan concludes with a discussion of the impact of Ivan Illich's 20th-century critique of formal schooling. The volume lacks a subject index.
