Children mature into adults through their own activities and the influence of their social environment. One such social influence, education, is purposeful, planned, and institutionalized. Educational psychology investigates the psychological foundations of this process, particularly in the development of humankind. The publication focuses on such topics as: (1) general problems of psychology in education and upbringing; (2) special issues of educational psychology; (3) psychological issues of teaching and learning; (4) psychological aspects of developing creative thinking among pupils and students; (5) performance and fatigue among pupils and teachers; and (6) the place of psychology in the Czechoslovak education system."
