    Abstract

    THE controversies in which psychologists arenow engaged are a sign of life and progress in the science, but an eclectic position is reasonable, provided that one maintains a point of view sufficiently unifying to avoid the danger of becoming a mere collector of odds and ends of fact and theory. Such a point of view appears to be afforded by the hypothesis of mental schemata, originally suggested by Sir Henry Head, and since advanced in other connexions by Prof. F. C. Bartlett and Mr. A. W. Wolters, who has chosen this topic for his presidential address to Section J (Psychology).
