PREFATORY NOTE

EDUCATION is in peril of losing its human

touch. Important as technical means, methods and conditions are, there is a belief, and a danger, too, that these elements may take to themselves an importance not fundamentally belonging to them. In the desire to emphasize the large human relations, I have made these interpretations of the educational masters who, first and last, are humanists. Being great humanists, they have tried to see education, as they have tried to see other great human forces, in its relations. In my turn, I have simply tried to interpret and properly to relate their utterances.

It is my present hope to make a similar interpretation of the Greek and Latin masters and of the medieval. For, each age indeed should have a voice, moving and quickening for every other age of the race and of the races of man.
