Lore of Learning/Process/Discuss Structure

This discussion is a continuation of the main Discussion page of the book(s) (on the Table of Contents).

Note that this environment permits multiple structures tailored for different audiences.

We start in English with a fairly generic approach which would work for people interested in learning and education from an historical and philosophical perspective.

As the sections develop, there might well emerge components of interest to learners of specific things (as suggested previously).

The volumes should cross time and cultures, though not necessarily using the same time scale for each culture.

The aim of this section is to discuss and discover insightful ways of grouping chapters into volumes - an on-going discussion.


Volume 1: Learning Through the AgesEdit

Myths and legends, the great teachers, anthropological and genetic perspectives.

Volume 2: Cultures and LearningEdit

Also through time. We might need volumes on this!
