Titel: University Reform in Great Britain (1) ...
Verlag: Thoemmes Press, Bristol, 2001.
Hardback,reprint. Set ISBN: 1855069156. Two volumes only. The 19th century saw a great amount of educational reform, with the old and classical systems under attack from modernizers keen to open up the "market" to an increasingly literate and "middle-class" mass. These books form a collection of the arguments for and against the old and new ideas, and provide a wealth of information on education and its prime movers and shakers. As such it is a valuable resource for British and non-British scholars working within the history and philosophy of education. Among the notable books included are Huber's pioneering history centred largely on Oxford and Cambridge, with its many fine illustrations, Yate's thoughtful and radical presentation of the case for the expansion of university education in England, Bristed's famous and very scarce account of his English university experiences and, in the earliest pieces, all three of Copleston's published "Replies" in which he provides a defence of the classical education as then taught at Oxford. With a new introduction by Professor Yasuhara this publication opens up a wealth of source material on the philosophical ideals and practical realities of an expanding university education in Great Britain in the 19th century. Complete in itself but part of a larger set. New. Buchnummer des Verkäufers A49421
