Passages from Education at the Crossroads

Teaching is an art; the teacher is an artist. ~ Jacques Maritain, Education at the Crossroads


The teacher has further to comfort the mind of the pupil by putting before his eyes the logical connections between ideas which the analytical or deductive power of the pupil's mind is perhaps not strong enough to establish by itself. ~ Jacques Maritain, Education at the Crossroads


The principal agent in education, the primary dynamic factor or propelling force, is the internal vital principle in the one to be educated . . . ~ Jacques Maritain, Education at the Crossroads


Any education which considers the teacher as the principal agent perverts the very nature of the educational task. ~ Jacques Maritain, Education at the Crossroads
