Interesting Facts

 

Martin stressed self-reliance, discipline, and the examined life as the most important objectives of adult education. 

 

Martin's divorce to his first wife while serving as a Minister caused controversy. He quit his job, and also lost his job as a journalist. He then moved to New York where he found work and married his second wife. This all took place in 1915.

 

His influences were William James and Carl Ludwig Nietzsche.
