Education and the Integration of Behavior

by Meredith Smith - 1927

THIS study is an attempt to utilize the physiological data now available to build up, in more detail and in a more concretely verified way, conclusions which have previously been reached from the side of the philosophy of education.1 While its materials have been derived from physiological research, its purpose and conclusions fall within the field of the philosophy of education. What there is novel in the study are neither the scientific data, on the one hand, known to competent physiologists, nor the main conclusions as to philosophic principles on the other; but the synthesis of the two, which apparently calls for the formation of a new hypothesis as to the nature of experience as an integrative whole. The problem is first to account for all behavior as an integration of internal and external factors, that is, as a correlation of impulses arising from receptors consonant with changes taking place within the organism and from exteroceptors consonant with changes taking place in the environment.
