“Pensées diverses sur l’éducation de la jeunesse en 1715” is a manuscript that has been lying silent in an archive in Languedoc for the past 300 years. It is time for the very modern voice of Anne de La Fare, the likely author of this document, to rejoin the discussion on educational theory in which she partook during her lifetime. Written 33 years after Pierre Bayle’s “Pensées diverses sur la comète” and 23 years after John Locke’s “Some Thoughts Concerning Education”, Anne de La Fare’s manuscript pre-dates Rousseau’s “Émile” by 47 years and Kant’s “über Pädagogik” by 88. Because she is concerned with the education of all children, Anne de La Fare provides a critical voice in this century of relatively few childhood and educational theorists. Much more typical of the period, Fénelon’s interest in education segregates the population to develop gender-specific theories. Anne de La Fare does not. Nor does she segregate according to status. La Fare’s manuscript was written primarily for the education of the elite, but it explicitly recognizes the universality of all mankind: Il y a des traits commun a tous les hommes. More than commonality, however, the work underscores the interconnectedness and interdependence of all members of a society. In doing this, Pensées diverses approaches education in a new way. La Fare outlines a pedagogy that is not only in the best interest of the child, but more importantly, on that is in the best interest of the society as a whole; one that is in the interest of the progress of humanity; one that is adapted to its own time as much as it is to ours.
