Experimental psychology; a manual of laboratory practice by Edward Bradford Titchener ( Book )
62 editions published between 1901 and 2010 in English and Multiple languages and held by 812 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.

A text-book of psychology by Edward Bradford Titchener ( Book )
64 editions published between 1909 and 2010 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present work has been written to take the place of my 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. I should have preferred, however ungratefully, to let the book die its natural death; for I feared that it would be impossible to recover the freshness and vigour of the first writing, and I knew that another issue would lay an oppressive tax upon future time and energy. But colleagues and pupils and publisher were insistent, and I finally decided to rewrite. The Text-book follows, in general, the lines laid down in the Outline. The only point that calls for special mention here is, perhaps, the scant space accorded to nervous physiology. I have always held that the student should get his elementary knowledge of the nervous system, not from the psychologist, but from the physiologist; the teacher of psychology needs all the time at his disposal for his own science. It is true that psychology, if it is to be explanatory, must supplement the description of mental processes by a statement of their physiological conditions"--Preface.

Systematic psychology: prolegomena by Edward Bradford Titchener ( Book )
25 editions published between 1929 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 735 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)

Lectures on human and animal psychology by Wilhelm Max Wundt ( Book )
27 editions published between 1894 and 2012 in English and held by 354 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 )
24 editions published between 1915 and 1928 in English and held by 341 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, æsthetics and general philosophy by Oswald Külpe ( Book )
16 editions published between 1897 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 126 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"--Préface.

Principles of physiological psychology by Wilhelm Max Wundt ( Book )
15 editions published between 1904 and 1999 in English and held by 117 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. Vol. 2, Quantitative experiments, part 2, instructor's manual by Edward Bradford Titchener ( )
8 editions published between 1905 and 1971 in English and held by 53 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. Muller 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 Muller'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 Muller's book simply in foot-note references. But the better counsel prevailed: I have gone over again the ground covered by Muller's researches, and have sought to make the new results an organic part of my exposition"--Preface.
