The confusion that besets our modern educational systems is born of a denial or an ignorance of a vital philosophy. The need for unity and for restoration of human ideals is more than apparent. The philosophy of common sense has suffered much at the hands of a pseudo-scientism, with the result that man is often considered a machine to which education must turn its attention merely in order to "oils its physiological cogs." What is more, atheism, not only in its mitigated forms, but also in its absolute form, has left its mark on modern theories of education. Secularization, scientism, and materialism seem to be the order of the day.
