Originally published in 1972, the emphasis of this book is on psychological and cultural understanding of education, in terms of persons and relationships, rather than processes. The book:

  • Deals with issues of continuing relevance for educational thought and practice, such as the education and training of teachers and diminishing the gap between schooling and education.
  • Considers the nature and function of educational research, the conflict between arts and sciences in education and the concept of guidance.
  • Examines teaching in its interpersonal context, and at the revolt of youth and the sexual revolution.
  • Assesses the influence of Freud, Winifred Mercier, William Boyd and Herbert Read.
