AYN RAND COMPRACHICOS PDF

It is a mentality which decided, at a certain point of development, that it knows enough and does not care to look further. The immediately given, directly perceivable concretes of its background. To grasp and deal with such concretes, a human being needs a certain degree of conceptual development, a process which the brain of an animal cannot perform. But after the initial feat of learning to speak, a child can counterfeit this process, by memorization and imitation. The anti-conceptual mentality stops on this level of development—on the first levels of abstractions, which identify perceptual material consisting predominantly of physical objects—and does not choose to take the next, crucial, fully volitional step: the higher levels of abstraction from abstractions, which cannot be learned by imitation.

Start your review of The Comprachicos Write a review Apr 18, Bruce Price rated it it was amazing For most people, this 17,word essay is impossibly long and dense. However, from my personal perspective as an education reformer, it is wonderfully intelligent and accurate. Progressive education is, start to finish, an elaborate hoax in that what actually happens is that children, far from being educated, are confused and stupefied.

That is the goal. I write about this stuff all the time. I present the same answers as Ayn Rand. But I give her credit for being more aggressive and more For most people, this 17,word essay is impossibly long and dense. But I give her credit for being more aggressive and more decisive than I can generally afford to be.

It is usually enough for me to point out where our public schools are always aiming, which is low. It does not add much to my typical article to point out that the Progressives are ruthless and evil. Ayn Rand wants to make sure you get it. Rand saw that this was an exact parallel with Progressive educators transforming children in our public schools. In both cases, the "comprachicos" child-buyers do whatever nasty tricks work.

That was in Rand saw that she had a wonderful literary moment she could use to explain the mysterious decline in K Similarly, in , when someone recommended this essay to me, I immediately saw that I had a wonderful literary moment I could use to explain why our students seem to get dumber each year.

The reason is that you get a lot of bang without working very hard. Rand is extremely smart. She has a lush intelligence, in that she sees possibilities and options in every direction.

Maybe she can carry all that in her brain but very few of her readers will be able to do that. I noticed, here on Goodreads, that many people indicated they liked this book and were reading it, but had not finished. Very few people would ever know what she had said.

I want to change their minds. The intelligence and insight provided by Rand are quite profound, and go a long way to explaining why despite ever more vast budgets, our schools get stupider and more destructive. A lot of smart and industrious people, subversives all, have made this happen. We have the same goal, defaming and debunking our Education Establishment.

The Comprachicos

At the opening of the book, Hugo provides a description of the Comprachicos: The Comprachicos worked on man as the Chinese work on trees. A sort of fantastic stunted thing left their hands; it was ridiculous and wonderful. They could touch up a little being with such skill that its father could not have recognized it. Sometimes they left the spine straight and remade the face. Children destined for tumblers had their joints dislocated in a masterly manner; thus gymnasts were made.
