How should educational research conceive of its goals? Joseph Schwabs essays on these questions have influenced education internationally for more than twenty-five years.Schwab participated in what Daniel Bell has described as the most thoroughgoing experiment in general education in any college in the United States, the College of the University of Chicago during the thirties, forties, and fifties.
