Review by:
Hugh Galbraith

This is the seventh of this series and, as usual, contains informative material on a variety of subjects.

James Alexander Miller gives the interesting story of tuberculosis but avoids mention of any psychosomatic aspects. Tracy Putnam, in Brain and Mind, examines the 'conscious automaton' theory to find it wanting and gently urges new orientations.

Arnold Gesell, on Genius, Giftedness and Growth, considers his approach 'the monistic, biological concept of growth'. Perhaps mechanistic is another term. He considers the psychoanalytic and other approaches as 'dualistic', 'romantic', animistic' or 'supernatural'.

Other titles by eminent authorities are, The Freudian Epoch, The History of B-Vitamins and Knowledge of Nutrition.

The language employed is frequently too technical for the laity.
