The psychic factors of civilization by Lester F Ward( Book )

30 editions published between 1893 and 1970 in English and Russian and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of the present work is to determine the precise role that mind plays in social phenomena. In the preface to the former volume I enumerated five of the comprehensive principles embodied in it to which attention had not previously been specially directed. Three of these related to the domain of mind. As I am still, so far as I am aware, alone in insisting upon the reality and importance of these principles, I will repeat them here: (1) The theory of the Social Forces, and the fundamental antithesis which they imply between Feeling and Function; (2) The contrast between these true Social Forces and the guiding influence of the Intellect, embodying the application of the Indirect Method of Conation and the essential nature of Invention, of Art, and of Dynamic Action and (3) The superiority of Artificial, or Teleological, Processes over Natural, or Genetic, Processes"--Preface.

Guide to the flora of Washington and vicinity by Lester F Ward( Book )

The aim of this work was to furnish to botanists exploring the locality [of Washington, D.C.] and as an aid to beginners in practical botany. The extent of territory which has of late years been tacitly recognized by botanists here as constituting the area of what has been called "Flora Columbiana" is limited on the north by the Great Falls of the Potomac, and on the south by the Mount Vernon Estate, in Virginia, and Marshall Hall, just opposite this on the Marlyland side of the river, while it may reach back from the river as far as the divide to the east, where the waters fall into the Chesapeake Bay, and as far west as the foot of the Blue Ridge, so as not to embrace any of the peculiarly mountain forms
A text-book of sociology by James Quayle Dealey( Book )

20 editions published between 1905 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work is the outcome of a demand for a short text-book that would contain in essence a clear and concise statement of the field of sociology, its scientific basis, its principles as far as these are at present known, and its purposes. In the preparation of this book emphasis has been placed on three points: first, on the social forces as the dynamic agent working unconsciously toward natural individual ends and consciously toward collective achievement under the direction of the intellect; second, on the importance of material achievement as the basis of psychical development, and on the necessity of systematic general instruction in the fundamental principles of knowledge as a basis for right social life; and third, on the arrangement of the material so as to facilitate its use for purposes of reading clubs and classes. The work is based fundamentally on Pure sociology, but is in no respect a mere condensation of it. Using the material of this larger and more complete work as a basis, and supplementing it by numerous references to Dr. Ward's other sociological writings, an attempt has been made to prepare a sort of handbook containing in epitome the essential elements of a system of sociology"--Preface.
