phil of ed[edit]

The section on philosophy of education needs to define, not just list each of the five key ideas that composed Herbart's concept of individual maturation (Inner Freedom, Perfection, Benevolence, Justice, and Equity or Recompense). I do not know these definitions, so perhaps someone else can provide this insert. Jeff10706 (talk) 12:35, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Studying Categories[edit]

In the "Psychology" section, there is a subsection titled "Herbart's Concept of the Real." It contains the following statement: "Kant believed that we become knowledgeable through studying the innate categories of thought…." This is totally untrue. No one can study a Kantian Category [an a priori Concept of the Understanding]. A Kantian Category is merely a predicate that any phenomenal object in general must be said to have. In order for an appearance to be spoken of as being an object, the Kantian Categories must be attributed to the appearance.Lestrade (talk) 01:39, 14 August 2013 (UTC)Lestrade
