Abstract

WILLIAM McDOUGALL Duke University, N. C. The present number of this new quarterly is of happy augury; for it is to appear in both the German and the English languages. It thus marks a new period of closer international cooperation in things of the mind. The Editor, having chosen the word 'Charakter' as the German title, has been confronted with the difficulty that the literal translation of that word could hardly serve solely as the title of the English version; he has wisely chosen the word Personality to assist in better expressing the field which he desires his journal to occupy. The difficulty is not merely one more illustration of the prob- lems that confront every conscientious translator, but is also sympto- matic of the state of that field of study which the title of the journal seeks to indicate. It is a field of which every man has some knowl- edge and in which every intelligent person is interested; it is one to which great intellects have made their contributions in all ages since the dawn of science; and it is one which has been very actively cultivated in the present century; yet it Is one in which
