ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "Life and Confessions of a Psychologist," by G. Stanley Hall. The reading of this book leaves one a trifle depressed. It is a pathetic life-epic in a minor key. It might even be called an apology for failure. Hall, essentially a poet-dreamer, decidedly subjective in temperament, is touched by hard, materialistic science and everywhere its dehumanized hand has either made his work abortive or else left him with a feeling of incompleteness. Even in the author's most interesting self-revelations one senses the conflict between his introversion and his cloak of critical and unbiased analysis.
