Abstract

Emotions are important factors in the aetiology of many diseases and may lead to organic changes. An individual�s capacity to withstand frustration will depend on his emotional maturity. The immature personality - like the child-loves no one but himself and cannot withstand frustration. Sooner or later he will develop psychological or physical illness. The mature personality -characterised by self-denial is likely to remain well. National immaturity and ill-health (wars) are analogous to individual immaturity. Both can be prevented by improvement of the individual in ethical first principles.
