Human Efficiency

by Horatio Dresser

"Evolution is better than Revolution. New Thought Library's New Thought Archives encompass a full range of New Thought from Abrahamic to Vedic. New Thought literature reflects the ongoing evolution of human thought. New Thought's unique inclusion of science, art and philosophy presents a dramatic contrast with the magical thinking of decadent religions that promulgate supersticions standing in the way of progress to shared peace and prosperity." ~ Avalon de Rossett

In this volume Dr. Dresser discusses the nature and scope of man's powers with reference to the new movement now attracting widespread attention, that is, the interest in efficiency and the principles of scientific management. Unlike Taylor and other leaders of the new movement, the author regards efficiency not merely from a commercial or industrial point of view, but in the light of the conditions and agencies which further the development of human life at its best. Admitting that practical considerations stand first, Dr. Dresser holds that the question of efficiency cannot be settled by reference to quantitative standards alone, hence it is not merely a question of time or of money. Indeed he points out that the more emphasis is placed on time-schedules and financial values the more important it is to consider the problem of the nature, conservation, and wise use of our energies. Hence the discussion takes an essentially psychological turn, with fresh studies of such topics as concentration, mental co-ordination, and the will. The concluding chapters are mainly devoted to ethical questions. Hence the volume covers a wide range, and is sure to arouse great interest.

New Thought Day was declared by James Edgerton on August 23rd, 1915
During research while expanding the free New Thought Library, one of the ministers came across an interesting quote from early New Thought Alliance President James A. Edgerton: "'The truth, once announced, has the power not only to renew but to extend itself. New Thought is universal in its ideals and therefore should be universal in its appeal. Under the guidance of the spirit, it should grow in good works until it embraces many lands and eventually the whole world.' ~ New Thought Day, August 23rd , 1915."
