Series: Yearbook (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development): 1962.Publisher: Washington, D.C. : National Education Association, 1962Description: viii, 256 p. ; 24 cm.Subject(s): Educational psychology | Personality | Psychology, Educational | PersonalityAdditional physical formats: No titleOnline resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: "The 1962 Yearbook of the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development provides bold new insights on one of the three foundations, the psychological, with related implications affecting social and philosophical aspects. Perceiving, Behaving, Becoming deals with the truly adequate person, adequate in the sense of Webster's synonym sufficient and in the sense of the authors' equivalent phrases, fully functioning and self-actualizing, rather than adequate in the corrupted usage, "good enough to get by." The yearbook describes how schools may help develop such persons. Here is no trivial contribution by scholars avoiding reality; here the authors deal with the heart of the educational process as they propose a new focus for education. If they prove to be correct in their espousal of a "third force" in psychology, neither behavioristic nor Freudian, a hopeful vista as to man's potentiality stretches ahead. The theories and applications of Perceiving, Behaving, Becoming merit intent and open-minded study by the reader"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved).
