Sämtliche Briefe an Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
Rebekka Horlacher, Daniel Tröhler
Walter de Gruyter, 2010 - Education - 822 pages
The second volume of letters to Pestalozzi covers the years between 1805 and 1809 and contains almost 400 letters. In the Napoleonic era in Europe "education of the people" became an important issue on the national agenda, making Pestalozzi's method a matter of practical relevance. Furthermore, the letters reveal the counterarguments faced by Pestalozzi's admirers and how the first conflicts arose in his institute in the Castle of Yverdon.
