Summary
"Since the publication of Le Bon's book, The Crowd, little has been added to our knowledge of the mechanisms of crowd-behavior. As a practical problem, the habit of crowd-making is daily becoming a more serious menace to civilization. Events are making it more and more clear that, pressing as are certain economic questions, the forces which threaten society are really psychological. The current author's thesis is that there is a necessary connection between crowd-thinking and the various traditional systems of intellectualist, absolutist, and rationalist philosophy. He concludes the way out must be through the formation of some such habits of thinking. The author argues that the humanist way of thinking may provide an educational method which will break up the logical forms in which the crowd-mind entrenches itself."
