Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0826484727, Hardcover)

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.

This well-written and illuminating book will stimulate fresh thinking about pedagogic reform. It will be interesting reading for those studying for Masters and Doctoral degrees in education as well as academics, researchers and policy-makers working in the same field.
