The Thorndike Arithmetics, Vol. 2

Excerpt from The Thorndike Arithmetics, Vol. 2 Nothing is included merely for mental gymnastics. Training is obtained through content that is of intrinsic value. The preparation given is not for the verb ally described prob lems of ex amination papers, but for the actual problems of life. In particular, problems whose answers must be known to frame the problems or whose conditions are fantastic are rigorously excluded. Reasoning is treated, not as a mythical faculty which may be called on to override or veto habits, but as the cooperation, organization, and management of habits; and the logic of proof is kept distinct from the psychology of thinking. Interest is secured, not in pictures, athletic records, and the like, but in arithmetic itself and its desirable applications. Interest is not added as a decoration or antidote, but is inter fused with the learning itself. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
