Its History and Principles Viewed in the Light of Modern Educational ProblemseBook - 2013
Mr. Quick, the English educationist, asserts that 'since the Revival of Learning, no body of men has played so important a part in education as the Jesuits. ' And yet, as the same author says, 'about these Jesuit schools there does not seem to be much information accessible to the English reader.' The publication of a new work on the educational system of the Jesuits may be justified at the present day. During the last decade, educational circles in this country have been greatly agitated about various questions of the utmost importance: the elective system, the value of the study of the classics, the function of the college and its relation to the high school and university, and the problem of moral and religious training. It has been the author's intention to view the Jesuit system chiefly in the light of these modern problems. These important educational questions have been treated at some length, and it is hoped that on this account the work may engage the attention of all who are interested in education.
