Education, since the earliest times, has been concerned with the mental, moral and physical well-being of the individual yet it has rarely, in practice, been able fully to adjust itself to man's threefold nature. To divide the attention equally between a training of man's mind, body, and morals, and to realise, in the words of the Athanasian creed, that "none is afore or after other - none is greater or less than another", would seem to present an ideal of educational theory and practice that is wholly unattainable. In consequence, as we become only too painfully aware when studying the evolution of educational consciousness, different countries in different centuries have tended to exalt those aspects of man's development that have particularly interested them, and often to stress them unduly.
