Reign of Terror, France
In developing this subject one must consider the exact meaning of Revolution. We must not construe this term to mean constant, systematic and gradual changes, which are continuously developing civilization. However, the term in its broadest sense might be so construed, but it is our purpose to study the mental conditions that has to do with minds in a state of "excited change"- "mental upheaval"- "abrupt development"- such as the Mexican Revolution, French Revolution, the Russian Revolution and the revolutions which may have all the mental aspects of a major revolution even though it may not succeed in its purpose.
