Psychology and the Teacher
"This book hopes to be a source of information for the teacher. It aims to present the essentials of all which modern psychology may offer to the school. Yet this is only one side of its task. Many signs indicate that a turn in the road of educational progress is near. Important changes seem unavoidable. A pedagogical unrest has set in. It is a time in which the fundamental principles and methods must be discussed with thoroughness and without prejudice. Hence it is not sufficient simply to report the psychological facts, but more important to examine carefully all the connections between psychology and education. The lack of clearness in this relation has been one of the most damaging sources of confusion in recent years. This book on psychology and education is, in a way, a continuation of my recent volumes, "On the Witness Stand" and "Psychotherapy," the one discussing the relation of psychology to law, the other to medicine. All three deal with the practical value of modern laboratory psychology for the daily life. They represent not the only, but the three most important aspects of applied psychology"--Preface.
