An outline of Spencer's ideas on the nature and practice of education and his belief that science should be at the heart of the curriculum.
States that the aim of education should be to prepare students for "complete living" and outlines 5 areas of activity that constitute human life. These being activities that lead to:
- gaining a livelihood
- raising of off-spring
- good citizenship
- leisure time
Barnard (1961) sees it as the work of one who not only sees the need for a greater place for science in the curriculum but also has the "progressive, individualistic, mid-Victorian point of view"
