KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled, ""An Essay Toward a Thomistic Psychology of Learning"", this volume is an exceptionally well thought out, scholarly, philosophical treatise on the psychology of learning. It is an original and very unusual book in many ways. Presenting first a survey of an entire course in the thomistic philosophical view of sensation and cerebration, the author then proceeds to build a philosophy of learning on this foundation, in which he views the matter of effective learning as involving essentially the proper organization of phantasms in analogously different ways in different types of learning. He then shows the practical relevance of his theory to the classroom treatment of various subjects. This should be very stimulating, informative and practically valuable reading for all teachers, educators and students of the philosophy of education.
