dc.description.abstractIt is evident that there are two important factors in producing a man and making him what he is, one the endowment given him at birth, the other, the environment into which he comes. No one doubts that the natural endowment is largely the result of the ancestry from which man springs, and that most of the traits that he displays are traceable to his ancestors. He has, however, certain traits which are peculiar to himself, and which are due to his environment, to his education, and to his association with others, as well as to variations brought about by heredity. It is the object of this paper to investigate what limitations heredity imposes on education, and how education can assist heredity in the improvement of the race. Before passing to this topic, it will be necessary to consider what causes the close resemblance that exists between successive generations, what gives rise to any variations that may occur, what traits are directly inherited from generation to generation and which ones are capable of being influenced by the environment.eng
