This is one of the earlier treatises which made Psychology the basis of treating Education in a rational and scientific manner. Nothing in the present trend of educational thought is more market than the growing desire to found all systems and methods of educational training on the principles revealed by a thorough inductive study of human nature. And this trend has amply been discussed in this popular treatise. The author, with more than thirty years teaching experience, has successfully presented the methods of education and training in a compact and brief form, amplifying such methods worthy of attention. The treatise shall be found an extremely useful introduction to the subject by the teachers.
