"An explanation of psychological relativity and its causal meaning, this book takes the view that relativity is the approach to which psychology will come in the end. All sciences have advanced by moving in the direction of relativism, the author contends. Absolute values that have been cherished by man have been replaced by relative points of reference in the scientific understanding of the universe, evolution and the phenomena of physics. In psychology, which deals with value itself--behavior is determined by values--relativity is conceived as becoming the general law. Since this is a comparatively novel idea, yet one which is soundly reasoned by the author, this book should be of serious interest to every practitioner in the psychological sciences, as well as to educators, historians, and political and economic scientists"--Preface.
