Excerpt from Psychology in Daily Life
The desire to apply this knowledge reﬂects the stress of the practical temper; the need of adapta tion of the mental equipment to the complex con ditions of modern life is insistent. Mental econ omy enforces the importance of shaping career to capacity; the conservation of mental resources en ters vitally into the problems of national welfare. The varied liability of the mind to defect and decay, to distortion and vagary, to degeneration and re version, sets in relief the critical importance of san ity, which is a eugenic endowment exercised in a wholesome environment. From these several sources there has resulted a sense of psychological value by which to gauge the worth of the educa tional and cultural provisions which society organ izes for the maintenance of its cherished ends. Furthermore, the ready intercourse of mankind has conferred a cosmopolitan and an humanitarian out look, mingling and comparing, while yet contrast ing, national and local standards and ideals. The products of intellectual, as of other achievements, are seen to belong not to one race or to one era or to one order of culture. The beginnings of mind in the animal world, the growth of mind in child hood and in the race, contribute notably to broaden the conception of its mature capacity and its po tential future.
