Synopsis

The six papers printed in this book were received with extraordinary interest at the time of their delivery last July before the National Educational Association in Boston, and still continue to be the subject of widespread public comment. They form a closely connected series of short discussions by representative men of leading universities on those questions of college education which are now arousing the keenest discussion in educational circles throughout the land. The acute conflict between the rival ideals of liberal education, the increasing demands of the secondary and professional schools, and the consequent problem of the survival of the American college, are the grave questions involved in the debate. To preserve in accessible form these notable discussions of the largest and most important educational gathering ever held in America, the six papers, by permission of their writers, are issued in this volume for the first time in collected form and in the order in which they were delivered.

NOVEMBER, 1903.
