In his "Vision of Education" J. H. Burns presented ideas regarding education through the unique conceit of an "Internplanetary Conference" featuring speakers from Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and "Others" each sharing their planet's methods and philosophies. In his Preface, Aldous Huxley takes the opportunity to express his own ideas, foreshadowing some of the themes of his later distopian novel "Brave New World", rather than commenting in depth on Burns' work. Scarce.
