A part of what is here offered has appeared in an article called "The Mind as Misrepresented to Teachers." The author wishes to thank the Editor of the Atlantic Monthly, where the paper was first published, for permission to reprint it. In preparing the present monograph, however, the earlier paper has been entirely rewritten and new material has been added.
