Originally published in 1922, this book presents a discussion regarding the interrelating roles of the individual, society and education in the formation of human experience. The relationship is seen as one in which a person's 'life is not limited by the satisfaction of his individual needs or the fulfilment of his personal desires, but is itself part of a life at once higher and wider, to the level of which it is raised, in the amplitude of which it is merged, the common life, that is to say, of his society'. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in anthropology and the history of education.
