The development of intelligence in children by Alfred Binet( Book )

54 editions published between 1916 and 2010 in English and held by 1,751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book of reprinted articles from the journal "L'Anne Psychologique" as a whole constitutes a complete history and exposition of the Measuring Scale as Binet left it. In Chapter I the authors show the origin of the Scale and their first methods of attacking the problem. Chapter II describes the first results--a series of test questions arranged in order of difficulty but not yet assigned to definite years. An immense amount of work had been done on this series, and the authors may have been justly proud of what they had accomplished, though it was soon to be largely discarded for a much more useful plan. This was the so called "1905 Tests." Chapter III shows the laborious and painstaking methods of standardization. Nowhere does Binet more clearly show his genius. It is here that he has taught us the method which must be used in all extensions or revisions of the Scale, that lay any claim to scientific value. In Chapter IV he gives us the Measuring Scale for Intelligence--the so called 1908 Scale. It is the most complete statement of the Scale. Chapter V gives some of his later 1911 corrections and revisions--his last word on the subject. In making up this book we have attempted to include everything Binet and Simon wrote explanatory of the Scale. The reader will find many repetitions and some contradictions, and the date of each article should be taken into account in deciding which is the authoritative statement. It has been thought best to include all of these repetitions and contradictions, in order to show the development of Binet's own thought in regard to his Scale. Only in this way does the marvelous work that he did on this subject become fully appreciated"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

Alterations of personality ; On double consciousness by Alfred Binet( Book )

65 editions published between 1892 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifteen years ago researches in pathological psychology, based upon the study of hysteria and suggestion, were begun in France, England, and other countries. Physiologists and philosophers gave themselves up enthusiastically to this new line of work, and in a short time a very considerable number of observations and experiments of different sorts were collected. The principal questions taken up with more or less fruitfulness were hallucinations, paralysis by suggestion, alterations of personality, diseases of memory, muscular sense, suggestion both in the waking state and in hypnosis, unconscious suggestion, etc. As these researches were multiplied and extended, many discussions arose. My intention in writing this book is not to keep up the discussions of the schools. Instead of opposing my experiments to those of other authors, I wish to gather together all the results that have been reached in the study of one question in order to find out which of these results naturally go together and allow themselves to be grouped under general principles. I shall cite only those experiments which have been confirmed by all and which give a constant result, no matter from what point of view they may be conducted. And I shall suggest merely, without any attempt at estimation, those phenomena which have been observed so far only by one person, and which can not therefore as yet be brought into the class of known and accepted facts, and I shall subject my own works to this rule just as I do those of others. I propose to give a detailed account of the result of these recent researches on the alterations of personality"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

91 editions published between 1886 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Animal magnetism by Alfred Binet( Book )

88 editions published between 1881 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We think it well to state that this work was written in the environment of the Salpt̊rir̈e. By this we not only mean that our descriptions apply to facts observed in that hospital, but also that our personal observations were made in accordance with the method inaugurated by M. Charcot, the chief of the school of the Salpt̊rir̈e, that is, in accordance with the experimental method which is illustrated by clinical science. While relying on the observation of spontaneous facts, we have strengthened these facts by experiments. It would at present be premature to write a didactic treatise on animal magnetism and hypnotism. This work only aims at giving an account of special researches which, notwithstanding their number and variety, will not justify general conclusions on the question. After receiving this warning, the reader will not be surprised to meet with occasional breaches of continuity, which are, however, more apparent than real, and which are due to our resolution not to speak of experiments which we have not verified for ourselves"--Preface.

Mentally defective children by Alfred Binet( Book )

28 editions published between 1907 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La publication de l'ouvrage d'Alfred Binet (1857-1911) et de Théodore Simon (1873-1961) prend son origine dans l'arrêté de 1904 de Chaumié, qui avait pour objectif l'ouverture de classes spéciales aux enfants présentant un retard intellectuel. Afin de faciliter le travail des commissions devant se prononcer sur la débilité mentale des enfants, les auteurs se posent diverses questions : Quels types d'arriérés faut-il recruter ? Quels sont les types de méthodes à employer ?
L'étude expérimentale de l'intelligence by Alfred Binet( Book )

46 editions published between 1903 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre (1903) marque une ère nouvelle en psychologie où l'étude de l'intelligence ne sera plus abordée de manière spéculative mais de manière de plus en plus scientifique. Binet propose de nouvelles méthodes d'investigation de la pensée qu'il va utiliser sur ses deux filles, inaugurant ainsi une des plus belles études de psychologie différentielle de l'intelligence. Bien qu'il aborde ici l'étude de l'intelligence de manière uniquement qualitative, on trouve cependant dans cet ouvrage les prémisses de son œuvre sur la mesure quantitative de l'intelligence (1904-1911) qui aboutira quelques années plus tard à la notion de QI
L'âme et le corps by Alfred Binet( Book )

71 editions published between 1905 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage de Binet (1905) fut l'aboutissement d'une longue série de recherches et de réflexions métaphysiques. L'objet de ce livre est d'examiner, à la lumière de la psychologie expérimentale, comment doit être posé et résolu le problème de la distinction et des rapports du mental (esprit, âme) et du physique (matière, corps). Voici la méthode pour distinguer la matière de l'esprit : 1° poser en principe l'existence du connaissable ; 2° chercher si l'on est fondé en raison à y établir une distinction absolument fondamentale en esprit et matière ; 3° cataloguer les objets mentaux et les objets matériels en examinant à propos de chacun d'eux ce qui est matériel ou ce qui est mental
A method of measuring the development of the intelligence of young children by Alfred Binet( Book )

22 editions published between 1912 and 1997 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The method here presented is one by which the intelligence of a child may be estimated. The method consists in asking the child some precise questions and having him perform some simple experiments; these questions and experiments are called tests. As much research has revealed which of these tests a normal child passes successfully at a given age, it is easy to ascertain whether the child under examination gives results equal to the normal child of his age, or whether he is advanced or retarded in relation to this norm. We give first the description of the tests and the instructions necessary for their application. In a second part we point out the general conditions to be observed in holding examinations, and the methods of calculation used in estimating the intelligence of children."

La mesure de développement de l'intelligence chez les jeunes enfants by Alfred Binet( Book )

67 editions published between 1911 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il y a plus d'un siècle que le premier test d'intelligence a été proposé par Alfred Binet et Théodore Simon. L'élaboration de la première version de l'échelle métrique d' l'intelligence publiée en 1905 sera réalisée dans le but de dépister les enfants arriérés. La première version de ce test était peu précise et ne comportait aucune indication d'âge. Progressivement Binet va adapter son échelle aux enfants des écoles. La version définitive du test date de 1911
The intelligence of the feeble-minded by Alfred Binet( Book )

24 editions published between 1897 and 2009 in English and French and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text represents information from articles published in 1908 and 1909 issues of L'Anně Psychologique. It is because our own experience has led us to the same conclusions, wherever we have studied the same points, that we have come to have such a profound regard for Binet that we feel like pronouncing this the most important and enlightening work on the real nature of the mental defective, that has ever appeared. The study of the language of the feeble-minded will also be found most illuminating in a region usually characterized by darkness. Finally the discussion of feeble-mindedness and dementia is quite as timely and enlightening as the rest. We have included these various articles in this volume for two reasons: first, because they all contribute to our knowledge of the feeble-minded; and second, they all give us further illustration of the way Binet used his own Measuring Scale."
