A characteristic peculiar ta the 20th century has been the emphasis placed upon psychology. Significant recent advances in the physical sciences have been mainly
applications of past experience and methods of research in the particular field. The psychological implications of the recent advances in physical sciences for human welfare, human nature and human experience that have manifested themselves in our time, are new. Interest in these implications pervades all institutions, industrial, educational, medical, economical, among them, and introduces an increasing accuracy into our insights of human behaviour. So new is the psychological development that complete ordering of the boundaries of the branches and aspects of psychological data has yet to be achieved. A variety of areas is being developed, with constant readjustment of relations between developed areas, and as it continues, the scientifically verifiable background knowledge of education accumulates.
