Criminal responsibility by Charles Arthur Mercier ( Book )
29 editions published between 1905 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Although, therefore, the subject of criminal responsibility has been considered and treated exhaustively, by Sir FitzJames Stephen, from the point of view of the professional lawyer who was in psychology an amateur, it seems that its treatment is not complete until it has been considered anew by a professional psychologist. Sir FitzJames Stephen was hampered by an insufficient knowledge of the working of the mind in health and disease. That he was so hampered he formally admits, and the admission is no disparagement to him. He made the best use of the knowledge of his time, and he obtained a singular degree of mastery over the knowledge of insanity that was then available. But in twenty years our knowledge has advanced; and I think the time is ripe to complement his work by another, written from the complementary point of view. This is the task that I have essayed"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2011 APA, all rights reserved)

Sanity and insanity by Charles Arthur Mercier ( )
36 editions published between 1889 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Considering how common an affection insanity is; considering that there is scarcely a family in this country that has not had at least one of its members more or less insane; it is somewhat remarkable that so little should be generally known about insanity. The present volume is an attempt to describe and enumerate, as to account for, the phenomena of insanity. That certain occurrences are occasional, others common, and others invariable in insanity, all authorities are agreed; and all are agreed, too, as to the frequent association of certain occurrences; but no attempt has hitherto been made to explain either the occurrence or the association. In order to anything about insanity, it is necessary first to know something about sanity, and that in order to know anything about the disordered mind, it is necessary to know something about the mind in health"--Preface.

Psychology : normal and morbid by Charles Arthur Mercier ( Book )
15 editions published between 1901 and 2010 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It has long been a favourite tenet of mine, and there are now, I think, others who hold it, that Insanity is no exception to the rule which requires a knowledge of the normal as an indispensable preliminary to a knowledge of the abnormal. The reason why the contrary opinion has been maintained with such vigour, and the contrary practice so generally followed, has seemed to me to be the absence of any work in which normal psychological processes are dealt with from the point of view and for the purposes of the alienist. Of the many excellent works on Psychology which are at the service of the student, there is none that affords him material help in understanding the nature of those disorders of mind which it is the work of his life to study. For instance, the chief labours of the student of the disordered mind are concerned with the existence and nature of Delusion; but, as far as I know, no work on normal psychology gives him any help in settling the preliminary questions of what a delusion is; of how it differs from a normal state of mind; of its mode of origin; or of its varieties. It is true that these are not questions in normal psychology, and it is no reproach to the psychologist who deals with the normal alone that they are excluded from his purview; but it is a great disadvantage to the alienist to be left without guidance in the face of problems of such profound importance to him"--Preface
