KIRKUS REVIEW

A book essentially for those teaching or interested in teaching, a kind of mid-century summary of the present facts ""about the nature of the human organism as applicable to teaching and learning."" Part one deals with the nature of man:- man as a purposive creature molded by his environment and constantly changing; part two deals with the teaching of the human being taking these qualities into consideration:- growth, communication, cooperation, freedom, creativity, etc. are discussed; part three consists of a list and setting forth of sources for the previous information. Despite the emphasis on facts and the concluding section of the book, this seems to be more of an exposition of present concepts and hypotheses -- ones assuredly worth consideration.
