In this original book, David Halpin argues that an understanding of the Romantic roots of progressive education is a necessary condition for restoring to critical consciousness some important, but currently neglected, basic ideas about teaching and learning - ideas about the importance of imaginative experience and its promotion; ideas about the high status that should be conferred on childhood; ideas about the importance of love and friendship in schooling; ideas about the positive role that heroism can play in making learning more effective; and ideas about viewing teaching as a critical vocation. These themes are pursued in separate chapters, each of which is illuminated by reference to the literary and intellectual contributions of four nineteenth century English Romantic writers: William Hazlitt, William Wordsworth, Samuel Coleridge and William Blake.
