This book focuses attention on the inherently important relation between psychology and education. The author believes that “the teacher who teaches John Latin needs to know John as much Latin”. Consequently the subject matter reconsiders old problems of education in the light of the increasingly exact psychological science. The approach here keeps in mind the conditions relevant to India vis-à-vis the West.
Beginning with the biological viewpoint in education, the author moves on to discuss various other topics such as instinctive types of behaviour, the nature of intelligence and the relevance of feelings, emotions, and the factors pertaining to attention and its control. Next, the emphasis shifts to the learning process, habit formation, the memory processes, the associative tendencies and the perceptual processes. After that, the significance of imagination has been stressed. Finally, the book is rounded off with a description of the psychological basis for instruction, an analysis of the old examination system versus the new one and the achievement of personality.
