Seite 22 - It is that reconstruction or reorganization of experience which adds to the meaning of experience, and which increases ability to direct the course of subsequent experience.
Seite 183 - Though the present system of public education, and the munificence with which it is supported, are highly beneficial and honorable to the Town ; yet in the opinion of the Committee, it is susceptible of a greater degree of perfection and usefulness, without materially augmenting the weight of the public burdens. Till recently, our system occupied a middle station : it neither commenced with the rudiments of Education, nor extended to the higher branches of knowledge. This system...
Seite 66 - The behavior of man in the family, in business, in the state, in religion and in every other affair of life is rooted in his unlearned, original equipment of instincts and capacities.

Two-thirds of the first board of trustees of King's College (now Columbia) were communicants of the Church of England, and, while the college was founded nominally as a civil institution, the condition was exacted that the president of the college should be a member of the Episcopal Church and that the religious service of the college...
