Van Herreweghe, M. L., Ed.; And Others
Experts in education from universities and other centers of research, coming from almost 60 countries and meeting in a world congress, studied the factors underlying self realization in education. The essential points presented through the various reports are: (1) All human beings have potentialities which should be developed to an optimum degree. It is the responsibility of society to develop conditions which will enable the individual to achieve self actualization. (2) There is complete agreement that self realization is one of the most important questions throughout the world. (3) Self realization is a very complex problem which involves many conditions and which is affected by very diverse influences. (4) The problems which confront all educators and teachers in the realization of personality are manifold. (5) Educational research in relation to the problem of self actualization has shown itself to be of major importance. This volume contains the papers presented at the conference. Those presentations that are in a foreign language are summarized in English. (CJ)
