The translation of Abraham Kuyper’s Scolastica I and II anticipates the publication of a larger collection of Kuyper’s writing s on education under the imprint of Christian’s Library Press and by the generous support of Rimmer DeVries and the Acton Institute. The complete volume will include Kuyper’s important essay entitled “Bound to the Word,” which discusses the topic of what being bound to the Word of God means within the entire world of human thought. The complete volume will also include extracts from important parliamentary speeches by Kuyper on the subject of education, plus a translation of Kuyper’s fifteen articles that appeared in his daily newspaper in 1880 under the title “Antirevolutionary Also in Your Household.” Appended to this series was a sixteenth article entitled “De School” in which Kuyper discussed the significance of the life of the primary school for the state. Additional essays and speeches in this anthology include parts of Kuyper’s 1875 “De schoolkwestie,” parts of the 1885 “Ijzer en leem,” Kuyper’s speech in 1903 to the Christian Teacher’s Association, and additional material on Kuyper’s views on vouchers.
The above is only a partial listing of the components of this groundbreaking anthology. This forthcoming, larger collection by no means exhausts Kuyper’s educational reflections. It will, however, make available in English a substantial amount of the thought on education by one of the most dynamic figures of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
