In his time Benjamin Franklin (1706 & ndash;1790) was the most famous American in the world.

His friends also knew him as a brilliant conversationalist, a great wit, an intellectual filled with curiosity, and most of all a master anecdotist whos

In We Have All Gone Away, his emotionally moving memoir, Curtis Harnack tells of growing up during the Great Depression on an Iowa farm among six siblings and an extended family of relatives. With a directness and a beauty that recall Thoreau, Harnack balances a child & rsquo;s impressions with the knowledge of an adult looking back to produce what Publishers Weekly called & ldquo;a country plum of a book, written with genuine affection and vivid recall. & rdquo; In a community related by blood and harvest, rural life could be bountiful even when hard economic times threatened. The adults urged ch
Selected philosophical and scientific writings by Gabrielle Emilie Le Tonnelier de Breteuil Du Châtelet( Book )

Mainly remembered as the mistress of Voltaire, Emilie Du Châtelet (1706-1749) was a writer in her own right, who published multiple editions of her scientific writings during her lifetime, as well as a translation of Newton's Principia Mathematica that is still the standard edition of that work in French. For this edition, Zinsser has selected key sections from Du Châtelet's published and unpublished works, as well as related correspondence, part of her critique of the Old and New Testaments, and a treatise on happiness
La contribution de William Godwin au débat sur l'éducation des pauvres en Angleterre (1783-1831) by Amélie Golven( )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

En Angleterre, à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, le débat sur l'éducation des pauvres s'intensifie. La pauvreté, grandissante, est vue comme une menace pour la sécurité publique. L'éducation apparaît alors comme un moyen de la réguler et de résoudre les problèmes moraux qu'elle engendre. William Godwin, écrivain, philosophe et éducateur, prend part à ce débat qui articule éducation, pauvreté et politique. Ce travail se fixe pour objectif de réaliser une lecture de la philosophie politique et éducative de William Godwin à partir des positions qu'il a tenues sur la question de la pauvreté. Bien qu'il n'ait jamais explicitement indiqué que sa pensée éducative et sa pensée politique étaient destinées aussi aux couches défavorisées de la société, nous faisons l'hypothèse qu'une lecture cohérente de son œuvre peut être réalisée si on le suppose. Pour définir sa contribution au débat sur l'éducation des pauvres, réaliser un état des lieux du système éducatif existant a été nécessaire. Dans un second temps, a été menée une analyse du plan d'éducation godwinien qui s'oppose nettement à cette éducation. Axé sur l'égalité naturelle, le potentiel de progrès et le développement des différentes dimensions humaines, un tel projet éducatif permet à chacun d'atteindre l'autonomie et de vivre harmonieusement avec ses semblables. Enfin, éduquer, c'est former de nouveaux hommes capables de vivre dans une nouvelle société. Pour Godwin, la société du futur est une société où les hommes seront suffisamment éduqués et autonomes pour se passer d'État. Au terme de ces analyses, il apparaît légitime d'affirmer qu'il n'y a pas, chez Godwin, une société pour les riches ou une société pour les pauvres ni une éducation pour les riches et une éducation pour les pauvres, mais bien, une éducation et une société pour tous
