Excerpt from Essays on Educational Reformers: Only Authorized Ed, of the Work as Rewritten in 1890 "It is clear that in whatever it is our duty to act, those matters also it is our duty to study." These words of Dr. Arnold's seem to me incontrovertible. So a sense of duty, as well as fondness for the subject, has led me to devote a period of leisure to the study of Education, in the practice of which I have been for some years engaged. There are countries where it would be considered, truism that a teacher in order to exercise his profession intelligently should know something about the chief authorities in it. Here, however, I suppose such an assertion will seem paradoxical; but there is a good deal to be said in defense of it. DeQuincey has pointed out that a man who takes up any pursuit without knowing what advances others have made in it, works at a great disadvantage. He does not apply his strength in the right direction, he troubles himself about small matters and neglects great, he falls into errors that have long since been exploded. An educator is, I think, liable to these dangers if he brings to his task no knowledge but that which he learnt for the tripos, and no skill but that which he acquired in the cricket-ground or on the river.

The International Education Series brings together Western writings upon educational subjects from ancient times to the First World War. The range of writings cover practical, theoretical and historical education. Taken together these historical and critical texts provide a theoretical framework for the practice of teaching. Many of these texts are very uncommon and should be of use to both historians of education, social history and educationalists.

The history of education, much as it has been hitherto neglected, especially in England, must have a great future before it. If we ignore the Past we can not understand the Present, or forecast the Future. In this book I am going to speak of Reformers or Innovators who aimed at changing what was handed down to them; but the Redical can no more escape from the Past, Than the Conservative can stereotype it. It acts not by attraction only, but no less by repulsion. There have been thinkers in later times who have announced themselves as the executioners of the Past and laboured to destroy all it has bequeathed to us.
