A History of psychology in autobiography by Carl Murchison( Book )
48 editions published between 1930 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is an attempt to examine the history of psychology through autobiographies of some of the science's early theorists. The author of a recent history of psychology found that it was impossible to get important facts concerning the scientific development of certain individuals except from those individuals themselves. Since a science separated from its history lacks direction and promises a future of uncertain importance, it is a matter of consequence to those who wish to understand psychology for those individuals who have greatly influenced contemporary psychology to put into print as much of their personal histories as bears on their professional careers."

A handbook of child psychology by Carl Murchison( Book )
52 editions published between 1931 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 831 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The field of child psychology is almost as old as is the field of experimental psychology. Experimental psychology has had a much older scientific and academic status, but at the present time it is probable that much less money is being spent for pure research in the field of experimental psychology than is being spent for pure research in the field of child psychology. In spite of this obvious fact, many experimental psychologists continue to look upon the field of child psychology as a proper field of research for women and for men whose experimental masculinity is not of the maximum. This attitude of patronage is based almost entirely upon a blissful ignorance of what is going on in the tremendously virile field of child behavior. The time is not far distant, if it is not already here, when nearly all competent psychologists will recognize that one-half of the whole field of psychology is involved in the problem of how the infant becomes an adult psychologically. It is believed that a proper and systematic presentation of the problems of child psychology, presented as problems experimentally investigated, will demonstrate a field of scientific research surprisingly full of accomplishment and of promise even to some of the experts in the field itself. The main reason for this surprise is that most of the books in child psychology have been either highly specialized monographs or highly popularized elementary textbooks. There has not yet been a single volume treating the entire field of child psychology which could be useful to students already acquainted with psychology and already expert in child psychology"--Préface.

Psychologies of 1930 by Carl Murchison( Book )
29 editions published between 1930 and 1973 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In planning Psychologies of 1930 we have tried to profit from all the serious criticisms that came to Psychologies of 1925. The former category of "Purposive Psychology" is here presented under the rubric "Hormic Psychology" and is expounded by the leading exponent of both rubrics. The large group of students who have come from Titchener's laboratory are represented by four different points of view. It may be made selfevident whether or not it is appropriate to apply the term "Structuralism" to the doctrines of this group. The present-day theories of the Leipzig laboratory are added to the Berlin group under the more general title of "Configurational Psychologies," it being definitely understood that this classification is applied by the Editor only. The three leading Russian schools of psychology are here presented in comparable, theoretical form for the first time in the English language. The Factor School of Psychology and three Analytical Psychologies appear also as distinct additions to the program of Psychologies of 1925. A separate section on some non-sectarian fundamental problems has also been added"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

The foundations of experimental psychology by Carl Murchison( Book )
26 editions published between 1929 and 1970 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It has not been easy to determine the chapters that should appear in this book. The list as it appears has been decided upon after consultation with many who are interested in this type of approach to the problems of psychology. It is not likely that any fruitful problem has been omitted. Those problems that have been omitted are thereby classified as promising little return from experimental effort. I know no better way of clearing the debris from the intellectual decks of psychology. It has too long been the custom to discuss over and over every problem that had ever been discussed before, as if some value had accrued from mere discussion. The only criterion of inclusion that has been considered during the preparation of this volume is whether a given problem promises a reward to experimental investigation. It is our intention that this book shall appear in new editions frequently enough to be always abreast of progress. That will mean a revision almost every year. It is unthinkable that an important exposition of the problems of experimental psychology ever be in any other condition. As time passes and emphasis in psychology changes, it may be expected that there will be revision of the list of problems given exposition in succeeding editions of this book"--Preface.

A handbook of general experimental psychology by Carl Murchison( Book )
25 editions published between 1934 and 1969 in English and Multiple languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Shortly after the publication in 1929 of The Foundations of Experimental Psychology, it became evident that it would be physically difficult to make single-volume revisions of that book. A choice had to be made between revising in several volumes or revising major subdivisions of the original book under separate titles. The latter choice was finally made and the first step in that direction was the publication of A Handbook of Child Psychology. The publication of this volume under the title, A Handbook of General Experimental Psychology, is the second step, and the complete enterprise will be consummated with the publication of A Handbook of Social Psychology. This book examines experimental psychology by looking at adjustive and receptive processes." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

Psychologies of 1925; Powell lectures in psychological theory by Madison Bentley( Book )
19 editions published between 1926 and 1928 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Having, during certain stages in my own student days, experienced something of the futility resulting from unadmitted fundamental differences in theoretical presuppositions, I have grown more and more convinced that experimental methods are largely instances of the more or less systematic theories of the experimenter. Practically any publication from the Cornell Psychological Laboratory carries a majority of the earmarks of Structuralism. One would look in vain for those ear-marks in any scientific article from Watson, Hunter, or Lashley,--for the ear-marks of Behaviorism attract attention there. Any scientific publication from Berlin these days establishes once more the Gestalt Theorie. The pedagogical danger here is caused by the tendency of each of these theoretical groups to think of its rivals in terms of caricature, and so to describe them to the public and to young students. The result is that theoretical tradition becomes established in certain educational communities, and students are born structuralists or behaviorists just as one may be born a democrat or a presbyterian. We have here a genuine cross-section of contemporary theoretical psychology. Here are the norms with which future psychologies can be compared. Here are the principles which are up-to-date through the year 1925"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

Social psychology; the psychology of political domination by Carl Murchison( Book )
15 editions published between 1929 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Political domination is so obvious a phenomenon in every walk of daily life and on every page of history that it must have a biological and psychological basis. Social institutions and particular forms of social behavior are but trivial and incidental consequences brought about by the ever present and irresistible influence of those persons or communities that dominate others. The field of social psychology will cease to exist even by the end of this generation unless its subject matter can consist of more important things than hypotheses concerning natural behavior or of mere verbal definitions. If the psychologist is unable to keep possession of this field, it will rapidly become occupied by the historian, the sociologist, the economist, and the educationalist. In accordance with the principles of this book, the field of social psychology will eventually be occupied by those most competent to survive under the conditions of that subject-matter. It is my hope that these more competent individuals will be psychologists, though there is no guarantee that such will be the case. Psychology in this field is poverty-stricken and has escaped a death notice chiefly because no one has called in the coroner. This need not continue to be the case. In the field of social psychology, as in psychology in general, we need ideas more than we need anything else. There are hundreds of men who are either brilliantly equipped or fairly well equipped to do experimental work if they only knew what to work at"--Preface.

A handbook of child psychology Vol. 1 by Carl Murchison( )
7 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The field of child psychology is almost as old as is the field of experimental psychology. It is believed that a proper and systematic presentation of the problems of child psychology, presented as problems experimentally investigated, will demonstrate a field of scientific research surprisingly full of accomplishment and of promise even to some of the experts in the field itself. The main reason for this surprise is that most of the books in child psychology have been either highly specialized monographs or highly popularized elementary textbooks. Before the first edition, there hadn't been a single volume treating the entire field of child psychology which could be useful to students already acquainted with psychology and already expert in child psychology. This volume is prepared specifically for the scholar, and its form is for his maximum convenience. The topics discussed in this volume range from the methodology of child psychology to learning in children." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
A History of psychology in autobiography ( )
15 editions published between 1930 and 1961 in English and Undetermined and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The author of a recent history of psychology found that it was impossible to get important facts concerning the scientific development of certain individuals except from those individuals themselves. Since a science separated from its history lacks direction and promises a future of uncertain importance, it is a matter of consequence to those who wish to understand psychology for those individuals who have greatly influenced contemporary psychology to put into print as much of their personal histories as bears on their professional careers. The initial idea, which later developed into the general plan for A History of Psychology in Autobiography, was contained in a letter of April 10, 1928, from Edwin G. Boring to Carl Murchison. Shortly afterwards, there was a conference in Emerson Hall, participated in by Edwin G. Boring of Harvard University, Karl B*hler of the University of Vienna, and Carl Murchison of Clark University, which resulted in our inviting Herbert S. Langfeld of Princeton University and John B. Watson of New York City to join with us in a committee which would assume responsibility for all invitations extended for inclusion in such a series. We then proceeded in the following manner in arriving at a tentative list of individuals to whom invitations were to be sent. Without consultation, each member of the Committee compiled a list of one hundred names that he considered eligible for such a series. The five lists of one hundred each were then combined, making a composite list of one hundred eighty-four names. Taking the one hundred eighty-four names as a nomination list, each member of the Committee then voted for sixty names. All chosen unanimously were placed upon a preferred list to whom invitations would be sent as the Series progressed. Since preparing the original list, the members of the Committee, in conference, have expanded somewhat the principle of selection which originally guided them. We agreed that individuals on the fringe of psychology or even in a neighboring field of science might so influence psychology that they should be included. In this Series, the printing of long and comprehensive bibliographies has been definitely avoided, since these will be accessible in the Psychological register"--Préf.
