What is the book Emile about?

Amazon.com: Emile: Or On Education: 9780465019311: Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Allan Bloom: Libros The definitive translation of Rousseau’s Emile, a foundational text in the philosophy of education Widely hailed as the most accessible and authoritative edition of Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s Emile, or On Education, this acclaimed translation by bestselling author Alan Bloom elevates what Rousseau considered to be the “best and most important” of his published writing into something more: a prescription, fresh and dazzling, for the education of autonomous, responsible—and truly democratic—human beings.

Initially published in 1763 at the height of the Enlightenment, Emile articulates Rousseau’s philosophy of education through the novelistic device of a fictional tutor’s encounters with his pupil from infancy to adolescence, illustrating how ideal citizens can be raised to survive in a corrupt society.

In addition to his translation of this classic of Enlightenment philosophy, Bloom offers an incisive introduction that connects the structure and themes of Rousseau’s book to timeless questions about teaching children which have persisted in the field of education, helping readers understand how to implement the philosopher’s broader insights into the possibilities—and limitations—of human nature.

Wilhelm Maximilian Wundt (; German: ; 16 August 1832 – 31 August 1920) was a German physiologist, philosopher, and professor, known today as one of the fathers of modern psychology, Wundt, who distinguished psychology as a science from philosophy and biology, was the first person ever to call himself a psychologist,

  • He is widely regarded as the “father of experimental psychology “.
  • In 1879, at the University of Leipzig, Wundt founded the first formal laboratory for psychological research.
  • This marked psychology as an independent field of study.
  • By creating this laboratory he was able to establish psychology as a separate science from other disciplines.

He also established the first academic journal for psychological research, Philosophische Studien (from 1883 to 1903) (followed by another: Psychologische Studien, from 1905 to 1917), to publish the institute’s research. A survey published in American Psychologist in 1991 ranked Wundt’s reputation as first for “all-time eminence” based on ratings provided by 29 American historians of psychology.

What is the theme of Emile?

Educating the Child’s Mind as It Grows – Where most French tutors of Rousseau’s time treat children as miniature adults with grown-up minds that simply need scholarly information poured into them, Rousseau treats a child as an individual with an evolving mind whose need for knowledge changes as it grows.

More than anything, children need to learn from nature, Rousseau suggests that educators not curtail this natural learning: “do not check these movements which teach him invaluable lessons” (16). What children require, then, declares Rousseau, is not the tedium of arcane books but the adventure of the great outdoors.

Young children have no idea what adults are talking about when they try to inculcate moral reasoning into them. They barely understand death, much less its significance in the life of Jesus; teaching them church philosophy will bewilder them. Early on, Rousseau suggests educators “Teach him to live rather than to avoid death” (7).

Who is the first sociologist to write about education?

Émile Durkheim – French sociologist Émile Durkheim (1858–1917) is best known for his theory of moral regulation, He was also the first sociologist of education. Durkheim was interested in explaining why the rise of individualism in society did not result in widespread social breakdown.

Durkheim wrote during a time when individualism was replacing the authority of the Catholic church in France and the collectivist social bond built on religious homogeneity. Societies no longer had singular dominant religions that bonded them together, or even dominant ethnicities. How was society being held together? Durkheim’s answer was that social life was possible because of the trust that existed among members of society.

For society to function, there must exist an unwritten moral code that people follow. This moral framework is at the core of Durkheim’s th e ory of society, Because of this belief in the importance of a shared moral code, Durkheim considered it the role of education in society to instill society’s morals in the minds (and actions) of young people.

His writings on the subject stress this point very much, as reflected in such titles as Moral Education (1925).1 He argued that it is only through education that a given society can forge a commitment to an underlying set of common beliefs and values, as well as create a strong sense of community or nationhood.

This moral education prepares us to be productive members of society by socializing and integrating us, whereby we not only understand but also value common morals. We become autonomous adults but we are guided in our acts by the moral codes that have become firmly ingrained in our beings.

Durkheim’s belief that society is held together by a common set of values and morals is at the heart of structural functionalism because it emphasizes how the various parts of a social system work together. Society functions because shared norms and morals create a sense of trust that leads to general social cohesion.

Why the commandments? – Who Wrote the Book of Education?

Schools are integral to this process because they instill the correct moral codes into children so that they can develop into productive adults that contribute to society.

What is Rousseau’s most important book?

3. L’Emile, 1762. – This was the book Rousseau considered the most important of his writings. Received with hostility at its publication in 1762 because of its views on religion, it was publicly burned. However, it inspired the educational system built by the French Revolution and is still considered a reference for today’s teachers.

For instance, the Japanese teachers in nursery school have to read it in their curriculum. The book is divided into different parts that correspond to the stages of the development of the child from his birth to adulthood. A fictional boy, Emile, is taken as an example. The book contained several important ideas of Rousseau.

He considered that men were born good and that they were corrupted later by society. The nannies, the preceptors have to help the child to develop the innate faculties Nature has given to him. The child had to observe and deduce. The philosophy of education was the complete opposite of the dominant conception.

  • At this time the child was seen as a sort of savage being and a sinner from the religious point of view.
  • You had to educate him through the imposition of culture and religious conceptions that he had to learn by heart.
  • The conception of Rousseau and the conception he opposed set the terms of a debate that is still going on today about education in many countries.

Theories on education have evolved and became more subtle but they are still starting from either the imposition of an outside knowledge/norm or the development of preexisting faculties. What led to the rejection of the book was not so much Rousseau’s views on education but his critics on religion.

  • A section of the book is called “the Profession of Faith of the Savoyard Vicar” where Rousseau imagines the speech of a priest to develop his own ideas.
  • Rousseau considered that evil was coming from selfishness and the corrupted society.
  • To avoid it, one has to turn to introspection and listen his heart to find the source of the true morale.

The dogmatism imposed from outside by the Church could not replace this, neither could the Reason. By stating this, Rousseau received the condemnation of both the Church and the others Enlightenment philosophers who based their moral system on Reason.

In 1794, Robespierre, a follower of Rousseau and political leader during the radical part of the Revolution, tried to impose the cult of the Supreme Being, inspired by these theories. Robespierre by an unknown painter. Sourced from Wikipedia The great enemy of Rousseau, Voltaire, discredited his theories by a personal attack.

He reminded everyone that Rousseau abandoned his own children and thus, had no legitimacy to express his views on the subject. In the twentieth century, he was criticized for his backwards views on the role of women. In l’Emile, Rousseau wrote: “To please men, to be useful to them, to make them love and honor them, to raise them when they are young, to care for them when they are adults, to advise them, to console them, to make their life pleasant and sweet, these are the duties of women in all times, and what we must teach them from childhood”.
