The growth of the mind; an introduction to child-psychology by Kurt Koffka ( Book )
104 editions published between 1924 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When I was invited to write a new treatise upon the Psychology of Childhood, the aim of the book, as it developed in my mind, was twofold. In the first place, I felt that I might be able to give a new and wider application to certain principles of psychological theory and research which have recently been advanced under the name of the Gestalt-Theorie, and thus might demonstrate their significance in the interpretation of childhood. In the second place, it was my belief that the teachers in the German elementary schools, for whom the book was intended, were in need of a psychology both modern and alive to the problems of the Educator. I believed it of urgent necessity that the psychological instruction usually given to teachers should be so modified as to set aside certain antiquated notions which, instead of promoting educational aims, often pervert them to such an extent that psychology is apt to become totally disregarded in educational circles. I was bold enough to believe that our new psychological principles would serve this useful purpose. And hence what I have tried to write is not so much a compendium of facts as an exposition of principles In short, I have tried to work out some of the chief principles of genetic or comparative psychology, laying special emphasis upon the evolution of the child's mind. I have adopted the plan of gathering all the notes together at the end of the volume, so that the text might have a rounded form, and also that the reader might not be disturbed in following a train of thought. In addition to references, a list of the notes contain a series of supplementary comments. In preparing this new edition of The Growth of the Mind I have done what I could to improve the book under circumstances that were not altogether favourable"--Preface.

3 editions published in 1928 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"After many centuries, the unconscious which has hitherto been the realm of the mystic or the mesmerist, is now being claimed for science. The psychiatric approach, however, having been made from the standpoint of pathology, by Healy in the field of delinquency, by Freud and his followers in the study of mental disease, has shown the regressive manifestations of the unconscious. In the belief that modern science offered valuable clues, Professor W. I. Thomas was asked to organize a conference on this synthetic tendency in the unconscious. He selected a number of specialists representing biology, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and anthropology, requesting them to present their interpretations or at least to speak of the problem as it appears in its relation to their particular fields of research or experience. The result is the following series of papers, presented at the City Club of Chicago, April 29th to May 1st, 1927, under the auspices of the Illinois Society for Mental Hygiene"--Introduction
