Within anthropology we have developed several useful distinctions in discussing the questions of how grandparents do or do not play a role in the education of children in any given society, and particularly in our own. Within the context of this article the author uses the word education to include conscious teaching of any sort, whether of speech, manners, morals, or skills, but include also the process of socialization, which occurs in all societies as children learn to restrain their impulses, postpone gratification, control their sphincters, walk, talk, and participate in social life, and the process of enculturation, by which children learn a particular culture.

IN THE history of civilization there emerge from time to time epoch-making reconstructions of world outlook.1 Classical Greece furnishes the best-known instance, when that gifted people first brought conscious criticism to bear upon their own culture and so laid the foundations of subsequent Western thought. Another occurred when Copernicus, Galileo, and Newton gave modern natural science to the world and along with it, ultimately, all that we know as modern industrialism. Still another was Darwinian evolution which, aided and abetted, to be sure, by other factors, is even now remaking our hitherto dominant moral and religious outlook. The latest instance of such epoch-making reconstruction has only just begun, as immediately before us we see the foundations of Newtonian science being destroyed by Einstein's relativity and the equally important breakdown of the atom.

by Edward Thorndike — 1916
