Konstantin Ushinsky (1823–1871) was a writer, the founder of scientific pedagogy in Russia.
In his pedagogical papers, Ushinsky substantiated the necessity of forming a whole person and therefore he believed the main task of education was to prepare a person for independent life. He worked a lot on compiling reading books for children, such as Detskii Mir (Children's World) and Rodnoe Slovo (Native Word) - a Russian textbook, which went through 157 printings, etc. They became the first popular and publicly available Russian textbooks for elementary education of children. His last major tractate was Man as a Subject of Education, the Experience of Pedagogical Anthropology (in two volumes, 1868-1869).
