Inevitably a product of the time in which it was published this book discusses important questions of neuro-psychology as well as setting out the early ‘nature versus nurture’ debate. The author also argues for changes in the care and education of those with learning difficulties to enable them to lead fulfilling lives, rather than being incarcerated in institutions (as was routinely the case in 1928).
