Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the book, which helps to introduce Juan Luis Vives to a wider reading public in the English-speaking world. Juan Luis Vives memory was suddenly revived during the nineteenth century in Germany, where he was rediscovered by German writers on pedagogy and empirical psychology. He chose to write the book in English since there was such a dearth of writing about him in that language and a Spanish version appeared in 1978. In recent years critical editions and translations of Vives have begun to appear in English, especially those in the series, Selected Works of J.L. Vives, published by Brill, which now number eight volumes.
