Pedagogy Notes

(1) anonymous-Rink 3

Physical Description and History

We know nothing of the manuscript(s) that Friedrich Theodor Rink [bio] used in preparing his publication of the notes.  Ritzel [1985, 36] believes that Rink made use of notes from different semesters.  Kant used textbooks by Basedow and then later by Bock; for a fuller discussion, see the Pedagogy lectures. It is entirely possible that this text does not stem, in any direct sense, from Kant’s pedagogy lectures at all.
