4 FRIEDRICH WILHELM AUGUST FROEBEL (1782–1852) Perhaps the most Romantic version of childhood is found in the writings of Friedrich Wilhelm August Froebel. “Let us live with our children: then will the life of our children bring us peace and joy, then shall we begin to grow wise, to be wise” (Froebel, 1887/1977, p. 89). These words were written by Friedrich Froebel in 1826 and serve as the foundation of his life’s work: This implies on our part sympathy with childhood, adaptability to children, and knowledge and appreciation of child-nature; it implies genuine interest in all that interests them, to rejoice and grievewith them in the measure of their joy and grief, not merely in the measure of our appreciation of loss or gain, of substance or shadow; it implies seeing ourselves with the eyes of a child, hearing ourselves with the ears of a child, judging ourselves with the keen intuition of a child.

Rousseau provided Pestalozzi with a philosophy of education through nature and the senses, which Pestalozzi elaborated into an educational psychology. He wrote in How Gertrude Teaches Her Children: “I now sought for laws to which the development of the human mind must, by its very nature, be subject. I knew they must be the same as those of physical Nature, and trusted to find in them a safe clue to a universal psychological method of instruction” (Pestalozzi, 1889/1977, p. 132). Out of the concepts of stages of development and simplicity of information, Pestalozzi identified three elements: language, form, and number.

This was a natural evolution of the writings of Rousseau, Froebel, and Pestalozzi, yet Ruskin did not openly express the respect and regard for children that had been demonstrated by the former theorists. His concern was for the advancement of art for all Englishmen. In his discussions concerning children, Ruskin was more interested in preparing them for a future life of appreciation and respect for art with reasonable knowledge of what is exemplary art and what is inferior art. He did not appreciate the early “scrawling” of children as charming and beautiful.
