I will admit to allowing availability on the Kindle to sway which books I read, especially as it pertains to beginning an exploration. Not only are the books cheaper, but I don’t have to wait at all to start reading. I’ve just started the Kindle download of Dr Shinichi Suzuki: Son of His Environment, by Lois Shepheard.
Shepheard’s 2012, 128 page volume contains the musings of a former grad student, a fine place to start. It promises tales of the man and of the philosophy. The subtitle intrigues me, “Son of His Environment.” I wrote in another post about Suzuki’s methods and educational philosophy developing in the post-WWII intellectual milieu of Skinner’s Behaviorism – the subtitle seems to cast no doubt about Suzuki being a player in the behaviorist ballgame.
My review will come in a subsequent post.
Thanks for reading.
