Abstract

This chapter introduces the long-forgotten ideas of the German educator Bernhard Heinrich Blasche. Only recently, in 2015, Blasche’s ideas on nature education were published by Karsten Kenklies. Blasche’s work is influenced by German Romanticism, a period known mostly for its literature and not for its pedagogical ideas. Blasche’s book “Nature Education” discussed the didactic arrangements necessary to educate young people in line with the demands of nature so that they respect it for what it is.
