José de la Luz y Caballero (July 11, 1800, Havana, Cuba – June 22, 1862, Havana) was one of the pillars of an essentially national pedagogy and thought. He performed an immense work as a teacher, researcher, philosopher and with the well-earned prestige among his contemporaries of being a trainer of youth and consciences.
His best known and most valued work is pedagogical. From a very young age he was dazzled by the imprint of Father Félix Varela, from whom he took forever his eagerness to reform and change the outdated educational method of colonial education, based on rigid scholasticism, within which memorization at all costs offended the intelligence of students.
Like Varela, he advocated experimentation and the scientific method. He gave great value to the teaching of physics and chemistry, booming after the spread of the lighthouse that represented for them the French Enlightenment and the Cartesian method for the knowledge of subjects and the world, absorbing the most advanced of universal knowledge.
Luz y Caballero said that the duty of the teacher was to instill in the students to think for themselves. He considered as a pedagogical conception that the starting point of knowledge was experience and observation. For him the experimental method was the only productive and only truly analytical. Thus he began a criticism against the current secondary education system and in several articles he carefully analyzed the problems of this level of education, raising with total clarity the convenience of adjusting the teaching of the different subjects to the needs of the country.
All the writings of José de la Luz y Caballero “On secondary education” are collected in this second volume of his works, along with other essays where he proposes the application of his innovative education plan.

This edition of the Works of José de la Luz y Caballero contains notes from the editions of Alfredo Zayas, Roberto Agramonte and Alicia Conde.
