A text-book of psychology by Edward Bradford Titchener( Book )

98 editions published between 1909 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present work has been written to take the place of the author's "Outline of Psychology." The Outline, which was stereotyped in 1896, had long passed beyond the possibility of revision, and the continued demand for it showed that there was still room in the science for a text-book which set experimental methods and experimental results in the forefront of discussion. The Text-book follows, in general, the lines laid down in the Outline. Broad topics discussed in this book include: sensation, affection, attention, perception, association, memory and imagination, action, emotion, and thought."

Systematic psychology: prolegomena by Edward Bradford Titchener( Book )

37 editions published between 1929 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"(From the preface) In the early summer of 1917, Professor Titchener began writing his Systematic Psychology--a book long projected. The book was to be his final word on the establishment of scientific psychology, coordinate with biology and physics; in a very concrete sense, it was to be a summing up of the reading, thinking, and experimental investigation in psychology which had occupied him during his entire professional life."--(PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
Experimental psychology; a manual of laboratory practice by Edward Bradford Titchener( Book )

75 editions published between 1901 and 2010 in English and Multiple languages and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The general purpose with which this book has been written is sufficiently indicated by its title. I have selected a number of the 'classical' experiments of Experimental Psychology, and have tried to present them in such a way that their performance shall have a real disciplinary value for the undergraduate student. Within this general purpose, my aim has been two-fold. I have sought to show, in the first place, that psychology is above the laboratory: that we employ our instruments of precision not for their own sake, but solely because they help us to a refined and more accurate introspection. And secondly, just as in my Outline of Psychology and Primer of Psychology I gave the results of experimentation a prominent place in the psychological system, so here I have treated the selected experiments not as separate exercises, but as points of departure for systematic discussion.

Lectures on the elementary psychology of feeling and attention by Edward Bradford Titchener( Book )

25 editions published between 1908 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eight lectures on the elementary psychology of feeling and attention which make up this little book were read during the author's tenure of a nonresident lectureship in psychology at Columbia University, February, 1908. The author has printed them as they were written for delivery, except that quotations from the French and German have, for accuracy's sake, been restored from English translation to their original form.

An outline of psychology by Edward Bradford Titchener( Book )

71 editions published between 1896 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The text of this third edition has been carefully revised, and the book as a whole is, I hope, considerably improved. Chapters I and XV have been rewritten, and the former enlarged by the insertion of two new Sections. Sections 12, 24, 32, 44, 69, 78, 82, 85 and 89 have undergone material change and, in most cases, received material additions. Minor corrections and additions appear throughout the book. I have also appended to each Chapter a selected list of books and articles for further reading. Ebbinghaus' Grundz{uml}uge (unfortunately not yet completed), James' Principles, K{uml}ulpe's Outlines and Wundt's Grundz{uml}uge are taken as the standard books of reference. My rule, in the citation of other authors, has been to choose the works which, in my opinion, form the necessary nucleus of a working library in Experimental Psychology. Every serious student should possess at least these books, and should moreover have access to the six principal psychological journals. These are: the English Mind: A Quarterly Review of Psychology and Philosophy (1876 ff.); the French Revue philosophique (1876 ff.); the German Philosophische Studien (1881 ff.) and Zeitschrift f{uml}ur Psychologie und Physiologie der Shines organe. (1890 ff.); and the American Psychological Review (1894 ff.) and The American Journal of Psychology (1887 ff.). The references are, in a large proportion of cases, to authors who dissent from the thesis maintained in the text. The teacher is thus enabled, without loss of time, to get both sides of the many disputed psychological questions, and can qualify the statements of the book at pleasure. My own belief--a belief which showed itself in the absence of outside references from the earlier editions--is that the main thing in teaching elementary psychology is to give one's pupils a system, a consistent body of doctrine. Whether the details are right or wrong is, comparatively, a small matter; errors can always be corrected. But if the beginner finds in psychology a mere medley of conflicting opinion, a hodge-podge of psychological analysis, logical classification, and epistemological interpretation, taken at random from one or another system, he is not likely to attain to clear thinking upon psychological problems. Let him learn a single map first, and only later on enquire how far coast-line and mountain ranges and river courses have been correctly charted. Hence I would suggest to the reader who is reading for himself, and not under instruction, that my references are intended literally for further, and not for parallel, reading"--Preface.

A number of sections have been modified or rewritten; several new exercises have been added; a large number of minor changes have been introduced in all the chapters; and, for the benefit of those who do not read German, a second Appendix, dealing with Flechsig's scheme of the cortical centres, has been inserted. The main topics covered in this book include the meaning of psychology, scientific method in psychological experiments, sensation, affection and feeling, attention, perception, ideas, emotion, action, memory and imagination, thought and self-consciousness, sentiment, and abnormal psychology"--Book.

Lectures on human and animal psychology by Wilhelm Max Wundt( Book )

28 editions published between 1894 and 2012 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I was asked some years since by the publisher of this work to undertake its revision, I felt some hesitation in complying with his request. The first edition of the Lectures appeared thirty years ago; and during that time there had not only been a great advance in experimental psychology, but my own scientific knowledge and convictions had been considerably increased and modified. Thirty years ago the science was no more than a programme for the future. Except in psychophysics, where Fechner had just broken ground, everything remained still to do; and distrust and suspicion met the investigator at every turn. As for myself, I had had but little experience in the difficult work of psychological analysis, which the gradual development of the experimental methods has done so much to further; and set about my task with more zeal than discretion. The first edition of these Lectures was principally based upon Fechner's Psychophysik and my own Beiträge zur Theorie der Sinneswahrnehmungen, which appeared between 1858 and 1862. The lectures dealing with these subjects have undergone the least alteration in the second edition"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 APA, all rights reserved)
A beginner's psychology by Edward Bradford Titchener( Book )

27 editions published between 1915 and 2013 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this Beginner's Psychology I have tried to write, as nearly as might be, the kind of book that I should have found useful when I was beginning my own study of psychology. Hence I have, in this book, written an inordinately long introduction, and have kept continually harping on the difference between fact and meaning. I try to make the reader see clearly what I take Science to be. The present work has its due share of the mistakes and minor contradictions that are inevitable to a first writing; at many points it falls short of my intention, and I daresay that the intention itself is not within measurable distance of the ideal. It is, nevertheless, the best I can do at the time; and it is also, I repeat, the kind of book that I should have liked to have when I began psychologising. Psychological text-books usually contain a chapter on the physiology of the central nervous system. The reader will find no such chapter here; for I hold, and have always held, that the student should get his elementary knowledge of neurology, not at second hand from the psychologist, but at first hand from the physiologist. I have added to every chapter a list of Questions, looking partly to increase of knowledge, but especially to a test of the reader's understanding of what he has just read. I have also added a list of References for further reading. It depends upon the maturity and general mental habit of the student whether these references--made as they are, in many cases, to authors who do not agree either with one another or with the text of the book--should be followed up at once, or only after the text itself has been digested"--Preface.

Introduction to philosophy : a handbook for students of psychology, logic, ethics, sthetics and general philosophy by Oswald Klpe( Book )

20 editions published between 1897 and 2007 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been written to supply a need which my experience as a teacher had brought home to me. At the same time, it is meant as a modest contribution to the philosophical work of the present day. On the one hand, I have striven to produce an elementary but complete guide to philosophy, past and present; and have thus been led to include in the work facts and arguments which have hitherto been confined to encyclopedias of philosophy. On the other, I have attempted, whether by way of criticism or by the adoption of a positive attitude to philosophical aims and problems, to further, or at least to stimulate, scientific work in the philosophical field. The reader will find, I hope, that the divergent schools of philosophic thought and the achievements of individual philosophers, ancient and modern, are treated with uniform interest and impartiality, and that the estimate of their value is based upon good reasons"--Preface.

Principles of physiological psychology by Wilhelm Max Wundt( Book )

21 editions published between 1904 and 2011 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an attempt to show the connection between two sciences whose subject-matters are closely interrelated, but which have, for the most part, followed wholly divergent paths. Physiology and psychology cover, between them, the field of vital phenomena; they deal with the facts of life at large, and in particular with the facts of human life. Physiology is concerned with all those phenomena of life that present themselves to us in sense perception as bodily processes, and accordingly form part of that total environment which we name the external world. Psychology, on the other hand, seeks to give account of the interconnection of processes which are evinced by our own consciousness, or which we infer from such manifestations of the bodily life in other creatures as indicate the presence of a consciousness similar to our own. Major topics discussed include: (1) the organic evolution of mental function; (2) structural elements of the nervous system; (3) physiological mechanics of nerve substance; (4) morphological development of the central organs; (5) course of the paths of nervous conduction; and (6) physiological function of the central parts."

Experimental psychology : a manual of laboratory practice by Edward Bradford Titchener( Book )

9 editions published between 1905 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second volume follows the plan of the first (see record 2005-06678-000), with such modifications (noted in their place) as the difference of subject matter has seemed to make necessary. The major part of the book--in Pt. i., the Introduction, Ch. I., and the expository portions of Ch. II.; in Pt. ii., the Introduction, Ch. I., and the historical and critical, Sections of Ch. II.--was written in 1901-1903. In the autumn of 1903, I was obliged to turn aside for a time to other occupations, and did not resume my main task until the spring of 1904. In the meanwhile, Professor G. E. Müller had published his Gesichtspunkte und Tatsachen der psychophysischen Methodik, a work of practically the same range as my Chs. I. and II. I had been greatly influenced by Müller's previous writings, and had shaped my account of the, Metric Methods in conformity with his standards; I had also, if it may be said without self-praise, carried psychophysical analysis, in various directions, beyond the point at which he had left it. When, therefore, the Methodik appeared, I found nothing to alter or amend; though, as I had known before, there was much that might be deepened and broadened. I was sorely tempted to leave my text as it stood, and to take account of Müller's book simply in foot-note references. But the better counsel prevailed: I have gone over again the ground covered by Müller's researches, and have sought to make the new results an organic part of my exposition"--Preface.
