Abstract

This book consists of a series of lectures and papers which have been given by the author at various times and in various places. The subject is taken up very thoroughly and contains not only a scientific consideration, but also much data in regard to the state of psycho-educational movement in this country, especially as it affects the universities and medical schools.

It distinguishes also the position in education which is taken by psychological clinics. It lays emphasis on the fact that one must be specially trained and specially endowed temperamentally to take up this intricate study with any hope of success. One is struck with the sane ideas expressed in regard to the relative position of eugenics and the scientific consideration of the welfare of the race. The author has gone extensively into the subject of the effects of physical handicaps on the mental condition.
