Education and Philosophical Thought

Excerpt

This book would have been much longer coming to the light without my mother's unstinting assistance in research, and my father's kind willingness to be neglected by her. It would have been difficult to organize without the patient and efficient help of the staff of the library of The Johns Hopkins University--notably of Martha Hubbard, Sue Kamp, Loretta Reinhardt, and Louis Kuethe--and without the critical reading of it by students working in that university for the degree of Master of Arts in Teaching. Its preparation for the press is unimaginable apart from the cheerful competence of V. Monroe, Doris Stude, Mary Gill, Carroll Routh, Elizabeth Hansen, Edith Schell, Roberta Speel, and Donald Reitz. I rest more easy in my mind for having asked Professor James C. Atkinson of The Woman's College of the University of North Carolina to read over the hitherto unpublished passage in translation from Rousseau.

My work on the book was supported by the Johnson Fund of the American Philosophical Society, and by the Dean's Research Fund of The Johns Hopkins University.

I wish to thank all those named for generous assistance and support, and to acknowledge the help of many others so numerous as to defy mention--especially several classes of students who bore kindly with the lectures out of which parts of the book grew, and the philosophers whose work I have expounded and drawn upon.
