He was the doctor of Philosophy, Pedagogy, and the Hungarian linguistics in the University of Debrecen in 1929. In 1932, the he became private tutor at the University of Debrecen and from 1942 he had been a professor. He held a public position after 1945. From 1948, his activity from a political viewpoint was criticized and attacked. A specific one exists according to his philosophical fundamental idea “Hungarian way of thinking” and one for this suitable “Hungarian world view,” which is the Hungarian social–psychological base of the theory his manifestations (this concept originates from Wilhelm Wundt). Sandor was primarily an educator and a lot preceded his own age in a look.
