Excerpt

This study owes its principal inspiration to the work of John Dewey of the Department of Philosophy, Columbia University. It has been an especial privilege to enjoy his counsel in its preparation. In the treatment of various technical psychological problems I am indebted to Harold E. Jones (formerly of Columbia University, Director of Research, Institute of Child Welfare, University of California), Robert S. Woodworth and Gardner Murphy, of the Department of Psychology, Columbia University. I have been greatly helped in clarification of thought and presentation by my wife, Faith M. Williams. I am also indebted for valuable criticism and suggestions to Joseph Chassell, Horace English, Helen Merrell Lynd and Herbert Schneider.
