Youth: Its Education, Regimen and Hygiene


YOUTH
ITS EDUCATION, REGIMEN, AND HYGIENE
BYG. STANLEY HALL, Ph.D., LL.D.President of Clark University
andProfessor of PsychologyAnd Pedagogy
PREFACE
I have often been asked to select and epitomize the practical and
especially the pedagogical conclusions of my large volumes on
Adolescence, published in 1904, in such form that they may be
available at a minimum cost to parents, teachers, reading circles,
normal schools, and college classes, by whom even the larger
volumes have been often used. This, with the coöperation of the
publishers and with the valuable aid of Superintendent C.N. Kendall
of Indianapolis, I have tried to do, following in the main the original
text, with only such minor changes and additions as were necessary
to bring the topics up to date, and adding a new chapter on moral and
religions education. For the scientific justification of my educational
conclusions I must, of course, refer to the larger volumes. The last
chapter is not in "Adolescence," but is revised from a paper printed
elsewhere. I am indebted to Dr. Theodore L. Smith of Clark University
for verification of all references, proof-reading, and many minor
changes.
G. STANLEY HALL.
