The 'Flawed Parent': A Reconsideration of Rousseau's "Emile" and Its Significance for Radical Education in the United States

This paper assumes the significance of Rousseau's Emile for the practice of radical education in the USA in the 1960s and 1970s. It is argued that the educational philosophy espoused in Emile is far more conservative than that actually attributed to his inspiration by some radical educators.
