General Education for Students

by Malcolm S. MacLean & Esther Raushenbush - 1952

The preceding three chapters of this yearbook have dealt with the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences in general education. By title and by general approach they center upon these three areas of subject matter and its organization for purposes referred to here as rationalist and neo-humanist in character. It is our intent, in the present chapter, to shift the angle of view and to focus directly on students not only as academic learners of organized and synthesized bodies of knowledge but also as people, as personalities whose emotional, social, and economic lives cannot be separated from their intellectual powers and activities. Our philosophical position is that of the instrumentalist, as described by Taylor (chap. ii), and of the gestaltist, as pictured by Corey (chap. iii).
