About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1926, this book presents the content of a series of lectures written by the British philosopher and psychologist James Ward (1843–1925). Their focus is on the theory and practice of education, providing an account regarding the application of psychological methods within an educational context. The 14 lectures were, for the most part, first delivered during the Easter Term of 1880 in the Literary Schools at Cambridge University. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in psychology, the history of education and child development.
