Educational psychology remains no more confined to the application of psychological principles, rather it strives to test their validity to regular day-to-day teaching. The researches into actual life and problems confronting the process of education are being continuously made by the educational psychologists so as to attain the ends of education. The present book intensively studies factors and conditions that are determinant of learning in the light of researches made by Aristotle, Freud, Adler, Jung, Piaget, Pestalozzi, Herbart, Froebel,Thorndike, Hall to name a few.
Intended primarily to cater to the academic needs of Indian students, the present book is unique in itself as it is not set in the Western environment and ideally keeps pace with the recent developments in the subject. Easily comprehensible and lucid in style, the book is rich in its contents and coverage. While its Bibliography will enable the students to pursue the topics in greater detail, the question bank will facilitate recapturing of the topics discussed. It will undoubtedly prove useful to students, teachers, educators, guidance and counseling personnel, and administrators of educational institutions.

During the course of teaching educational psychology to graduate and post-graduate students, the authors felt the need for a suitable textbook on this subject which may cover the syllabi of Indian Universities and maintain a balanced outlook. The books written by Western authors are set in Western environment and hardly cater to the needs of Indian students. The present book is an attempt to provide a model textbook excluding all unnecessary elaborations and including whatever is required to maintain a good standard. The language of the book is simple and lucid.
In such an attempt as this the authors naturally depend on whatever material has been presented by those who have preceded their efforts. The authors express their deep sense of gratitude to all of them.
Insight in educational psychology depends as much on mutual exchange of ideas among teachers as on personal experience and learning. Any such exchange of views will be most welcome.
