This book, written to help teachers, is a psychology of knowledge and the learning process in children aged between 4 to 18 years. It deals with problems in the classroom such as: differences in the degree of social preparedness; different assumptions about work, space and time; and variations in intellectual learning levels.

This work succeeds in bringing together different but related disciplines concerned with people and the histories and conditions of their lives.
