Much of the experimental part of the work although planned by Dr. Sidis was done in the Harvard Psychologic Laboratory.

The volume is divided into three parts. Part 1, Suggestibility. Part 2, The self. Part 3, Society.

Those interested in elements and stages of self-consciousness, intercommunication between the two selves, will find very much of interest in this volume. Here we have the mental processes brought down by easy transitions into formation of geometric figures and algebraic equations.

"It is as easy as playing on this pipe." The work is however instructive to all interested in this latter day fad, whether they agree with the conclusions of Dr. Sidis or not.
