This practical monograph covers the large field lying between what may be termed normal mental state in childhood and the extremes represented by different pathologic types of individuality. Secondary characteristics as influenced by heredity, disease and environment are discussed from a philosophic point of view. A practical chapter on feeblemindedness in five sections covers the hereditary and postnatal types; their recognition during the first year of life; the examination of these children; their intelligence and their possibilities. Individual chapters are devoted to nervousness, hysteria and epilepsy. A very complete chapter is devoted to the psychopathic child.

Attention is directed to sexual perversion
