الصفحة 66 - Consciousness, then, does not appear to itself chopped up in bits. Such words as ' chain ' or ' train ' do not describe it fitly as it presents itself in the first instance. It is nothing jointed ; it flows. A ' river ' or a ' stream ' are the metaphors by which it is most naturally described.
الصفحة 22 - Education, therefore, must begin with a psychological insight into the child's capacities, interests, and habits.
