The Powerful and Neglected Voice of Charlotte Mason by Elaine Cooper
This monograph examines a number of aspects of the unusual life of Charlotte Mason, a neglected late Victorian educational philosopher and reformer: her biography and the late 19th-century context of her thinking; her biblical anthropology—mainly her view of the child as a person; her philosophy of education and principles of mind; her critique of prevalent educational theories; her views on knowledge and character; her holistic epistemology inspired by a 14th-century Florentine fresco; and last, her educational methodology, flowing from the central beliefs of her philosophy. **Available here as a digital download or as a paperback on Amazon.**
The multi-authored Charlotte Mason Centenary Monograph series is designed to highlight and explore the continuing educational and leadership relevance of Charlotte Mason (1842–1923) through the collective contributions of the Armitt Museum and Library, the University of Cumbria, the Charlotte Mason Institute, and other scholars and practitioners worldwide.
