Froebel on the Definition of Education

“To treat man as a thinking, understanding being, who is becoming conscious of himself ; to incite him to the pure, unviolated representation of the inner law, of the God-like, with consciousness and self-determination; and to produce ways and means for this representation, is to educate man.”     – Frederich Froebel, The Education of Man
