Lessons in Humanity
From the Life and Work of Jan Amos Komenský
Though once called the “father of modern education,” Jan Amos Komenský receives little more attention than the occasional reference in a history of education text today. This is to be regretted, since Komenský has much humanizing fare to offer to the standards-driven educational scene today. Jan Habl’s important book reminds us of Komenský’s educational ideas and draws attention to the role of the transcendent in his thought. In these secular and often dehumanizing times, educators would do well to read this book.
