STUDENTS ON SOME OF LIFE'S IDEALS. By WilLIAM JAMES, Professor in Harvard University, Author of “The Principles of Psychology,” etc. xi + 301 pp., 12mo,
gilt top. $1.50, net. Contents: Psychology and the Teaching Art; The Stream of Consciousness ; The Child as a Behaving Organism : Education and Behavior ; The Neces. sity of Reactions; Native and Acquired Reactions ; What the Native Reactions Are ; The Laws of Habit ; The Association of Ideas ; Interest ; Attention; Memory ; The Acquisition of Ideas; Apperception; The Will; The Gospel of Relaxation ; On a Certain Blindness in Human Beings; What Makes Life Significant.
In writing these “ Talks" out, the author has gradually weeded out as much as possible of the analytical technicalities of the science. In their present form they contain a minimum of what is deemed "scientific" in psychology and are practical and popular in the extreme.
The Nation : "His style has the quality of a communicable fervor, a clear, grave passion of sincerity and conviction, from which some vibration detaches itself and passes into the reader, and forms him into the writer's mood.”
The Critic: “When pedagogical libraries can show a preponderance of such books, they may well begin to rival the fiction
departments in popularity.”
WALKER'S DISCUSSIONS IN
By the late FRANCIS A. WALKER, President of the Massachu.
setts Institute of Technology. Edited by James PHINNEY MUNROE. 342 pp., 8vo. $3.00, net. The author had hoped himself to collect these papers in a volume.
The Dial: "A fitting memorial to its author. ... The breadth of his experience, as well as the natural range of his mind, are here reflected. The subjects dealt with are all live and practical. . . . He never deals with them in a narrow or so-called 'practical' way."
Literature: “The distinguishing traits of these papers are open-minded. ness, breadth, and sanity. ... No capable student of education will overlook General Walker's book; no serious collection of books on education will be without it. The distinguished author's honesty, sagacity, and courage shine on every page."
The Boston Transcript: "Two of his conspicuous merits characterize these papers, the peculiar power he possessed of enlisting and retaining the altention for what are commonly supposed to be dry and difficult subjects, and the capacity he had for controversy, sharp and incisive, but so candid and generous
