Chapter Summary

Giles of Rome requires, in each of periods of childhood, specific educational recommendations. The duty of parent education begins, according to Giles of Rome, from the birth of their child, and even more specifically when the newborn was baptized and received the sacraments of the Church. Giles of Rome observed that young boys, from the age of 14 years, are able to develop all their faculties. The optimism, Aristotle understands thus as the result of the natural heat of the body, which young people possess in great quantities, who carries them to see the future in a positive way, according to the same principle which states that the wine makes the optimistic drunkards. Giles of Rome gives importance to physical education and recommends in particular to those who want to concentrate on the "vita politica". The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Aristotle; educational recommendations; Giles of Rome; physical education; young people
