Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi (1746-1827) transformed education theory and practice throughout the world. In this masterful work, Daniel Tröhler shows how Pestalozzi's work and influence should be understood as part of the larger "educationalization of the world" at the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century, just as republican ideas and movements were sweeping through Europe. Tröhler deftly connects Pestalozzi's work to the social problems and concerns of the time, which were beginning to be understood as educational problems and treated with educational remedies. Based on new research and sources, including the recent publication of some 2,500 letters sent to Pestalozzi, this work reconstructs Pestalozzi's passive and active role in the making of the educationalized world, first in Europe and then overseas.
