Excerpt from Education and Evolution
Let us now consider the means employed by nature to realize her scholastic aim.
The word mans, as applied to education, denotes the material and psychical instruments employed in the production of educational results. Unless we co... nfine ourselves in this dis cussion, however, to the material objects employed, we shall confuse the means of natural education with its methods. The means of natural education, then, are the physical and social environment. This, to be sure, in the proper sense of the word, is no means at all. Nevertheless we may say that it is by the impinging forces. Of the environment acting upon the organism that nature produces all her results. She has no school but the world, no teacher but experience. The ab surdity of following nature, in any literal sense, in the work of the school is here most conspicuously presented.
