Visible Factors

As a general rule, the contents of the unintegrated and yet-unfilled mind of a child are largely determined by the contents of the mental life of persons and groups among whom the child is born and reared, and with whom he interacts. To a large extent this rule happens to be correct in my case. The character of the mental life of my early sociocultural milieu shaped most of the con­tents of my early mentality.

Early Years

Please note: In an attempt to improve long-term access to our digitized collections, we are currently migrating collections to a new system. As a result, access to several collections will be delayed as we complete the move. Please let us know if you need to view items from any of the digital projects currently affected and we will provide special access as capacity allows. Thank you for your understanding.
