Criminal responsibility by Charles Arthur Mercier( Book )

42 editions published between 1905 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 625 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)
Crime and insanity by Charles Arthur Mercier( Book )

27 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A person found not guilty by reason of insanity has a very good chance of being released from custody; and the chance of that person harming someone again is substantial. Looks at cases where child molesters and murderers have been set free, often for apparent good reason, and have repeated their previous crime. What is the answer to this dilemma?

Psychology : normal and morbid by Charles Arthur Mercier( Book )

21 editions published between 1901 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 145 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.
