Francois Fenelons treatise on education during the 17th century is a thorough and common sense approach to education. Commissioned to educate the grandson of King Louis XIV and prepare him for the throne, Fenelon abandoned all modern approaches to education and followed the genius of the ancient Hebrews, Egyptians, and Greeks. Fenelon believed that the ten classical virtues were the foundation for educational models and could only be taught through friendship and a gentle approach.
