Excerpt from The Psychological Clinic, Vol 7The game continues and the teacher allows the competitive rivalry impulse to come in and, in time, grow to white heat, while all the time she is cautiously playing the impulses of play and sym pathy in the foreground She commends the manly play appeal to pride impulse appoints a jury of manly players to settle close decisions pride, construction, independence, allows the players to feel that they are running the game independence , yet all the time she is watching for opportunities to drive home the moral values by linking them to the impulse of play and sympathy and pride and so on A game can serve no higher purpose than this Even rivalry may be played in trying to outdo in the nobleness of playing fairly The moral values are reached just in the degree that the master hand of the teacher quietly builds up a little world spirit that loves and wills nothing less than equal rights and fair play.I would that all men were trained in such a moral world, a world that knows keen competition and yet wills the square deal The spirit of such a world is sorely needed to day, for it can cure fraud and graft and greed, can cure all immorality indeed, and thus it solves our needy problem of moral teaching.Such is the possible prowess of schoolcraft such is the vitality of teaching A teacher calls into service a little handful of childish impulses, and manipulates them by combining or opposing them in such ways as to avoid impure ends and realize such pure ends as moral will Gradually the child may be weaned away from ends purely selfish, and he comes to love and will ends that make a better world for all of us to live in This is the essence of sublimation.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
