"One approach to knowledge and the spirit of making it accessible to the problem-solving learner by modes of thinking that he already possessed all that he would, so to speak, assemble by combining natural ways of thinking that he had not previously combined. One start somewhere where the learner is. And one starts whenever the student arrives to begin his career as a learner. It was in this spirit that I propose that "any subject could be taught to any child at any age in some form that is honest.
