On the Teaching of English

by George Isaac Brown — 1906

One who takes life seriously, and so undertakes to discharge an important duty to society, will be unconsciously influenced and in a large measure directed in the performance that duty by his "view of the world." Is the universe one process of infinite complexity—an organized unity—or is it a conglomerate of misfits at which its Creator and man must be ever tinkering to prevent anarchy? It is especially fitting that the teacher should ask himself such questions, and there is a peculiar fitness that the teacher of English should make his view clear on this matter.
