Excerpt from The New Psychology and Its Relation to Life The flood of light thrown upon the workings of the human mind by the discoveries and the resulting conceptions of modern psychopathologists has illuminated the mental mechanism, not only of the hysteric and the madman, but of the the normal human being. It is clear beyond all possibility of doubt or cavil that the mental factors which produce the characteristic behaviour of the neurotic and the lunatic are at work in the "normal" mind and give rise to many well-known traits of "normal" behaviour, as well as to behaviour and conduct which we may not care to call "normal," but which certainly fall far short of anything for which the help of a physician would be sought. Much of the modern work in psychopathology has in fact a most direct and intimate bearing on the everyday life of us all, and on every human problem. Although the topics in question have interested an increasingly wide section of the public during the last few years, as is shown not only by the books that have been published, but also by magazine and newspaper articles, it seems that there has been no attempt to present a picture of the structure and working of the normal human mind which would enable the general reader to get a fair grasp of the new points of view in the study of the mind, and of their relation to human life.
