Read the following passage carefully and answer the question.


I do not wish to suggest that the humanistic elements in education are less important than the utilitarian elements. To know something of great literature, something of world history something of music and painting and architecture, is essential if the life of the imagination is to be fully developed. And it is only through imagination that men become aware of what the world might be without it: ‘progress’ would become mechanical and trivial. But science also can stimulate the imagination.

Psychology was until fairly lately. a merely academic study, with very little application to practical affairs. This is all changed now. We have, for instance, industrial psychology, clinical psychology, educational psychology: all of which are of great practical importance. We may hope and expect that the influence of psychology upon our institutions will rapidly increase in the near future. In education, at any rate, its effect has already been beneficent.
