The more we reduce ourselves to machines in the lower things, the more force we shall set free to use in the higher.
We go on multiplying our conveniences only to multiply our cares. We increase our possessions only to the enlargement of our anxieties.

|Profession:||Author, Feminist, Philosopher, Teacher, Translator|
Anna Brackett was an American female philosopher known for being a translator, feminist, and an educator. She is known for being one of the most important educators among women, but her philosophical achievements are oftentimes overlooked. She translated Karl Rosenkranz's Pedagogics as a System and wrote The Education of American Girls, a response to arguments against the coeducation of males and females. In 1861, Anna started teaching in Charleston, South Carolina. She made two proposals to the Board of Education that were eventually adopted. In 1872 Anna Brackett resigned as principal after there were changes in the curriculum that went against her beliefs. In 1874, Brackett published The Education of American Girls, an essay that applied Rosenkranz's theory of education to girls. In this essay, Brackett observes that a young woman must be guided through two steps of the learning process, the "perceptive stage" and "conceptual stage."
