Dangers and Difficulties of the Project Method and How to Overcome Them: VI. A Review and Summary


by William Heard Kilpatrick - 1921

We are fortunate in the constructive tone and temper of today's discussion. Our meeting turns out to be not a debate on acceptance or rejection, but a conference to examine a point of view, its possible dangers and its actual difficulties. And this is as it should be. The ultimate aims of the speakers are one, and our personal points of view are remarkably close. It is well, however, for those whose actual approach has been by different lines to look at the problem from their respective angles. No one person left alone would see all. We tend, perhaps of psychological necessity, certainly by natural inclination, to see most clearly those things that are congruent with what we have already accepted, and to let fade from memory and attention what remains opposed. It is a tendency which we should deplore and which we must fight; and the effort we make is greatly enhanced by the stimulation of those who approach the matter from other points of view.
