Die Bedeutung des Experimentes für den Unterricht in der Chemie

Abstract

THIS brochure forms part of a “Sammlung naturwissenschaftlich-pädogogischer Abhandlungen,” and is very hard reading or an ordinary English chemist. It is divided into two parts, the first of which deals with the importance of experiment for attaining the object of chemical instruction, and the second with the importance of experiment in relation to method in chemical instruction. It is hard reading in the sense that one has to wade through detailed arguments which culminate in conclusions such as “description does not suffice for the instruction of the pupil in chemical processes,” and “the, development of the laws concerning chemical processes from experimental observations is more effective for chemical teaching than their deduction from quoted examples.” The work is, in fact, an example of pure pedagogical exercitation, and it may be recommended with confidence only to those who have a liking for that kind of literature.

Die Bedeutung des Experimentes für den Unterricht in der Chemie.
