Education and the Social Order by Bertrand Russell

Despite the disastrous failure of his one practical attempt to create a perfect school, Russell constantly strove to invent a system of education free from repression.
Here Russell dissects the motives behind much educational theory and practice - and attacks the influence of chauvanism, snobbery and money. Energetically discussed and debated are discipline, natural ability, competition, class distinction, bureaucracy, finance, religion, sex education, state versus private schools, education in Russia, indoctrination, the home environment and many other topics.
Described by reviewers as brilliant, provocative, sane, stimulating, practical, and original, this book contains the essence of Russells thought on education and society.

Education and the social order by Bertrand Russell

Education has at all times had a twofold aim, namely instruction and training in good conduct. The conception of good conduct varies with the political institutions and social traditions of the community.

Children were taught to obey their parents and to reverence their social supervisors, to feel awe in the presence of the priest and submission in the presence of the Lord of the Manor. Democracy has substituted co-operation for submission and herd-instinct for reverence; the group in regard to which herd-instinct is to be most operative has become the nation, which was formerly rendered unimportant by the universality of the Church. Meanwhile propaganda has become persuasive rather than forceful, and has learnt to.

Over the next three years it was expanded and modified and then laid to rest in a drawer as I gave up the theory of education to become immersed in its practical application within the private sector. Recently, the manuscript has been unearthed and I have started a final revision with a view to publication that now benefits from three decades of practical experience. Contrary to every rule of writing an essay, I have therefore decided at my own peril to not restrict my subject matter to a manageable selective presentation but have instead opted to try to cover too much in too little time. The arguments presented and the facts to justify them are not as lengthy or as detailed as the originals from which they have emerged.

Because all opinions are really hypotheses. Some wise. Some otherwise. Post a Comment. In his landmark work, "Education and Discipline," Bertrand Russell sets forth his opinions on manners, etiquette, and discipline with regard to children.

Educational theories generally focus on how learning occurs, and they seek to understand, analyse, and prescribe educational practices.

Bertrand Russell is a famous philosoher, logician and educator. He aged Assuming that education should do something to afford a training and not merely to prevent impediments to growth, the question arises whether education should train good individuals or good citizens. Knowledge, emotion, and power, all these should be widened to the utmost in seeking the perfection of the human being. Power, Wisdom, and Love, according to traditional theology, are the respective attributes of the Three Persons of the Trinity, and in this respect at any rate man made God in his own image.
