Within the science of education of today, there is a need to balance the pragmatic study of nature with an imaginative, yet exact consideration of the natural world wherein questions of beauty and morality can be seriously entertained. Neither memorizing data nor copying a beautiful drawing engages thw whole imagination of the student in the way that it is engaged by drawing a flower from life, involving active, striving inner creativity.

The author hopes that this book will be a resource through which teachers, students and others can find their own way to the reunion of beauty and truth.
