Alexandria and her Schools

by Charles Kingsley

This is a series of four lectures given by Kingsley delivered at the Philosophical Institution, Edinburgh, in February, 1854, at the commencement of the Crimean War.

The volume is intelligent, literate and eloquent as well as brimming with good sense. Kingsley seems to have been a philosopher priest in a sense that many might not be able to easily reconcile due to the degradation of our educational system since his time. Not only will I use much of the material he presents because it is an interesting historical perspective, I have also made many notes based on his open minded approach and wide heartedness that betrays an admirable character. I would have loved to have known this man.
