These volumes constitute the further proceedings of the conferences sponsored by the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation, some of which have been reviewed in This QUARTERLY.1 Drawing from research in the biological, sociological, and psychological sciences, a group of some fifty professional workers and scientists aim to arrive at some unified criteria applicable in our society to the furtherance of a program for promoting mental health. Two main problems confronted the Conference: to determine what essential factors constitute and promote mental health, and to derive conclusions useful for the specialist in his applied science and valid also for the education of the layman. This involved clarification and definition of concepts and terms in order to effect some semantic unity between the sciences.

The positive factors causing mental health, rather than prevention of mental disease, put the discussions in a broad frame of reference.
