"A recent study of opinion among industrial psychologists revealed a very general agreement that a course on the several fields would serve as an excellent orientation for the graduate student. While there have been several textbooks written by single authors for such a course, the editor feels that psychology is now so specialized that it is difficult for one writer to survey adequately the significant developments in all the fields. The interpretation of a field to the student can best be accomplished by a writer who is himself immersed in that field. He then writes as an intimate insider rather than as an appraising outsider. His feeling for the right emphases, unless he is a one-sided worker in that field, can seldom be matched by that of an outsider. For these and other reasons, the editor believes that the textbook for this course should be in the nature of a symposium, written by contributors who have shown by their previous writings that they are very much at home in their respective fields. The order of the chapters in this volume is somewhat arbitrary. They may be taught in almost any preferred sequence. The adopted sequence places the main theoretical fields first, beginning with the developmental approach. The chapters on differential psychology end this first section, since individual differences emerge from developmental causes, from social factors, and from causes that tend to induce abnormalities. The transition from differential to educational and clinical problems is very direct. The divisions of other applied fields and their order were agreed upon after much exchange of ideas on the part of the contributors. The more special fields of physiological psychology and aesthetics do not fit readily into the sequence of the first section on theoretical fields. The somewhat abstruse subject of points of view comes appropriately after the more concrete material, when the student is more ready to appreciate the reasons for divergent systematic approaches to psychology. The omission of a chapter on experimental psychology may seem a serious oversight to some readers. The term "experimental psychology" is losing its traditional meaning, however, as a separate and distinct field. All fields are becoming more and more experimental, and so the term is coming to refer to a method rather than a field"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

"In writing "General Psychology" the author has had in mind the typical introductory course in psychology in colleges of liberal arts. An attempt has been made to give a balanced and unbiased picture of scientific psychology as it is today. No particular school or point of view is followed, yet the significant and enduring contributions of them all are included. It is the author's personal experience that more than half the students who take the beginning course in psychology will follow it with at least one advanced course. Preparation of the student for further courses cannot, therefore, be ignored as an objective in the first course. It has never been demonstrated that the introductory course which lays the foundation for further courses cannot also serve well the needs of the student who confines his study of psychology to one course. The order of topics reverts to the more traditional, logical arrangement, laying a foundation and building upon it a more or less coherent superstructure. A minimum amount of anatomy and physiology of the nervous system is included. While many studies of student interest place the topic of sensation far down the list, the author is of the opinion that this depends very much upon the instructor and his enthusiasm for the topic. Students can be aroused to ask questions concerning their sensory powers and about sensory phenomena as they can about other topics. In spite of the established order of topics, any instructor may find that he can successfully make some readjustments to suit his own predilections. Controversial issues, including theories, have been almost entirely omitted"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Intellectual abilities of symbolic and semantic judgment by Ralph Hoepfner ( Book )
5 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Two studies approached the problem of describing judgmental processes from the standpoint of individual differences in terms of basic traits. Based upon Guilford's structure-of-intellect model, the factors of symbolic and semantic evaluation were hypothesized to exist as distinct from one another and also from factors represented in other domains of the model. Experimental tests were developed as measures of the hypothesized factors. Measures of reference factors were also employed to demonstrate the uniqueness of the hypothesized factors. The tests were administered to 2 samples of high-school students, scores were factor analyzed, and axes analytically rotated, resulting in the demonstration of the 12 hypothesized evaluation factors and all the reference factors as uncorrelated dimensions of intellectual ability. The conclusion is that the model has continued to lead fruitfully to undiscovered, differentiable intellectual aptitudes. (Author)
