Project Details


Anna C. Brackett (1836-1911) was an important female intellectual and educator in the United States in the second half of the 19th century. She participated in the St. Louis Philosophical Society and Movement, was quite active in the philosophical movement. Besides be the editors of philosophical journals, she also published a number of educational works and monographs, including the translation of the first American book entitled "Philosophy of Education". Brackett not only introduced Hegelism into his educational theory, but also advocated the importance of women's higher education and coeducation. Her feminist theory and educational thought could be said to be intertwined. She argued that women could receive the same education as men, and that a more systematic and complete education for women would inevitably lead to greater contributions to society by leapfrogging previously narrow career choices and entering the wider public sphere. Through the exploration of Brackett's educational activities and women's educational thought, this article hopes to improve the understanding of the important American philosophical movement (also the educational movement) - St. Louis Philosophical Movement in the 19th century, so as to have a deeper understanding of the germination and historical evolution of American educational philosophy before the rise of Dewey's educational philosophy.
