personality, and the place of man in the cosmos. If it possessed no other claim to recognition, this alone should bestow upon it a prominent place in every philosopher's speculations, and entitle it to the place of honor in his theories as to the nature of mind and of body, and of the relations of one to the other.1REFERENCES

It may appear hypercritical to find fault with so admirable a book as Professor Pratt's. In it he puts the finishing touches to the work of destroying Parallelism which McDougall so well began. What we cannot understand, however, is why he refuses to go the full distance towards which the facts he cites and logic itself seem to impel him. Pratt stops short with what he names "a dualism of process," which is "not necessarily a dualism of substance" (p. 183). But how is it possible to conceive one without the other? On page 181, in describing the self he defines it as a substance, when he writes: "The self then is a genuine reality with a unity and identity of its own, a center of influence and energy, and not to be confounded with a mere sum of qualities or of states."
