DESCRIPTION: The first of six pages on Education (which together conclude twelve pages of internet-based resources on Man, one of the Field Nodes comprising the subject tree of The Telson Spur), this page is a list of links to on-line resources in education and literacy. The coordinate pages, with a common header and List of Contents, contain links to resources in the social sciences in general (including anthropology and human evolution), the study of human culture and society (including traditions), the study of language and sociology (including population and demography), political science and economics, social and economic policy and development, the humanities, and to other resources in education (primary and secondary education, and student resources; teacher resources, distance learning and homeschooling, and special education; higher education, technology in education, education and the internet, and issues in education).

KEYWORDS: learning; literacy; education

A race preserves its vigour so long as it harbours a real contrast between what has been and what may be; and so long as it is nerved by the vigour to adventure beyond the safeties of the past. Without adventure civilization is in full decay.

It is for this reason that the definition of culture as the knowledge of the best that has been said and done, is so dangerous by reason of its omission. It omits the great fact that in their day the great achievements of the past were the adventures of the past. Only the adventurous can understand the greatness of the past. In its day, the literature of the past was an adventure. Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides were adventurers in the world of thought. To read their plays without any sense of new ways of understanding the world and of savouring its emotions is to miss the vividness which constitutes their whole value. But adventures are to the adventurous. Thus a passive knowledge of the past loses the whole value of its message. A living civilization requires learning; but it lies beyond it.

Alfred North Whitehead
