At the commencement of a lecture entitled 'Cultural Aspects of Vocational Education' Sir Fred Clarke said: 'The more I have thought about the implications of the topic under discussion, the more do i realize how momentous and far reaching-they are. I now feel that in this innocent-looking title the whole crisis of our times is involved.'
The judgement explains the raison d'etre of this thesis, viz., that the problem of relating vocation and culture in education has implications which are 'momentous and far-reaching' for the present day social crisis.
The statement indicates the aim of the dissertation: this is to trace the historical growth of the educational relation of vocation and culture in order to perceive more clearly the present situation and its widespread implications. To do so is to see more clearly, in one special field, something of the problems the educator is faced with in a world which everywhere cries out for reconstruction.
