Professor JOHN MACMURRAY (Grote Professor of the Philosophy of Mind and Logic, University of London) : 'Coming to Grips with Democracy '
IN this talk Professor Maemurray discusses the effects of the coming of democracy upon education. The great transformation of education in the last fifty years is tho result of the democratic demand for equal opportunities for everybody. In education we are far from having secured that yet. Wo must consider the clash between the old aristocratie tradition of education for a small, wealthy, leisured class, and the new education which aims at treating everyone alike, and ask ourselves these questions : Is the old culture, which is still the major stock-in-trado of our public schools and Oxford and Cambridge, rtvilly suitable for a democracy ? Does our organized school system standardize our minds ? How important is knowledgo in education ? Is the purpose of education to produce good citizens or good men ? Professor Macmurray gives his answers to these questions ; next week he considers the demands upon education of the industrial system.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
