I had witnessed the rise and fall of Darwinism in its original form, but the idea of evolution had been bred in my very bones — as was the case with all my contemporaries; moreover, I felt such a profound admiration for the personality of this great investigator that I felt justified in accepting the mission. In social cognitive theory I distinguish among three types of environments: the imposed, selected, and constructed environments.

In preparation for the final examination, I read all the great philosophical classics, howbeit in a very cursory manner, and for my dissertation, the entire Platonic literature. In 1883 the first volume of my Tonpsychologie appeared, which, in spite of long preparation, was, just like the book on space, finished only after it had gone to press, and shows the effects of this procedure.
