"There are certain obvious defects in this book due to the circumstances of its composition. The author trusts that a brief account of those circumstances may therefore be at least condoned. This book is a compilation of lectures in psychology. The chapters discuss general psychology, general analysis, theories of attention and presentations, sensation, movement, perception, imagination, expectations, language, reading, feeling, intelligence, faith, self, conduct, mind, and character."

"These lectures do not form a systematic treatise. They only attempt to discuss in a popular way certain assumptions of 'modern science' which have led to a widespread, but more or less tacit, rejection of idealistic views of the world. These assumptions are, of course, no part of the general body of the natural sciences, but rather prepossessions that, after gradually taking shape in the minds of many absorbed in scientific studies, have entered into the current thought of our time. Though, as I believe, these prepossessions will prove to be ill-grounded and mistaken, yet they are nevertheless the almost inevitable outcome of the standpoint and the premisses from which the natural sciences start. The following is a brief outline of the argument: -- A. i. Mechanics, as a branch of mathematics dealing simply with the quantitative aspects of physical phenomena, can dispense entirely with 'real categories'; not so the mechanical theory of Nature, which aspires to resolve the actual world into an actual mechanism. Homoeopathic remedies are the best for that disorder ; and, in fact, at the present time mathematicians are, of all men of science, the least tainted with it. An inquiry into the character and mutual relations of Abstract Dynamics, Molar Mechanics, and Molecular Mechanics, seems to shew that the modern dream of a mechanical a??? is as wild as the Pythagorean of an arithmetical one. (Lectures II-VI) ii. A powerful, though unintentional refutation of this theory is furnished by Mr. Herbert Spencer's attempt to base a philosophy of evolution on the doctrine of the conservation of energy. When at length Naturalism is forced to take account of the facts of life and mind, we find the strain on the mechanical theory is more than it will bear. Mr. Spencer has blandly to confess that 'two volumes' of his 'Synthetic Philosophy' are missing, the volumes that should connect inorganic with biological, evolution. (Lectures VII-IX). Turning to the great work of Darwin, we find, on the one hand, no pretence at even conjecturing a mechanical derivation of life; and, on the other, we find teleological factors, implicating mind and incompatible with mere mechanism, regarded as indispensable. (Lecture X) iii. And finally, when confronted with the relation of mind and body, Naturalism is driven, in the endeavour to maintain its mechanical basis inviolable, to broach psychophysical theories in flagrant contradiction not only with sound mechanical principles and sound logic, but with the plain facts of daily experience. To the body as a phenomenal machine corresponds the mind as an epiphenomenal machine, albeit the correspondence cannot be called causal in any physical sense, nor casual in any logical sense. (Lectures XI-XIII) B. An examination of the ' real principles' of Naturalism thus secures us a specially advantageous position for discussing the epistemological questions on which the justification of idealism depends, iv. The dualism of matter and mind, which has made the connexion of body and soul an enigma for the naturalist, has rendered the converse problem, as to the perception of an external world, equally vexatious to the psychologist. It is obvious that there is no such dualism in experience itself, with which we must begin; and reflecting upon experience as a whole, we learn how such dualism has arisen: also we see that it is false. (Lectures XIV-XVII). Further, such reflexion shews that the unity of experience cannot be replaced by an unknowable that is no better than a gulf between two disparate series of phenomena and epiphenomena. Once materialism is abandoned and dualism found untenable, a spiritualistic monism remains the one stable position. It is only in terms of mind that we can understand the unity, activity, and regularity that nature presents. In so understanding we see that Nature is Spirit. (Lectures XVIII-XX)"--Preface.
