Studies of childhood by James Sully ( Book )
69 editions published between 1895 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The following Studies are not a complete treatise on child-psychology, but merely deal with certain aspects of children's minds which happen to have come under my notice, and to have had a special interest for me. In preparing them I have tried to combine with the needed measure of exactness a manner of presentation which should attract other readers than students of psychology, more particularly parents and young teachers"--Preface.

Outlines of psychology, with special reference to the theory of education by James Sully ( Book )
116 editions published between 1884 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this new edition I have endeavoured to make the Outlines of Psychology a more complete introduction to the science. While thus considering the needs of the general student, I have, in this American edition, borne in mind the special requirements of that large class of readers of my works in America who desire to have pointed out the connections between psychology and education. Accordingly, although in view of the publication, since the first appearance of this work, of a volume specially designed for teachers (The Teacher's Handbook of Psychology), I have been able in this new edition to reduce the sections dealing with the applications of principles to educational methods, I have thought it desirable to retain these sections in a condensed form. They need not, I think, be an obstacle to the general student, who is not particularly interested in education; yet they are, I trust, sufficient to suggest to the teacher lines of application, and to retain for the work something of that practical character which, I have reason to believe, has recommended it to my friendly American readers"--Preface.

Teacher's hand-book of psychology, on the basis of the "Outlines of psychology" by James Sully ( Book )
106 editions published between 1886 and 2013 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present volume is based on the writer's larger work, "The Outlines of Psychology." By considerably reducing and simplifying the statement of scientific principles there presented, and expanding the practical applications to the art of Education, he hopes he may have succeeded in satisfying an increasingly felt want among teachers, viz., of an exposition of the elements of Mental Science in their bearing on the work of training and developing the minds of the young"--Preface.

Untersuchungen über die Kindheit psychologische Abhandlungen für Lehrer und gebildete Eltern by James Sully ( )
19 editions published between 1897 and 1909 in German and English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Illusions a psychological study by James Sully ( Book )
49 editions published between 1881 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present volume takes a wide survey of the field of error, embracing in its view not only the illusions of sense dealt with in treatises on physiological optics, etc., but also other errors familiarly known as illusions, and resembling the former in their structure and mode of origin. I have throughout endeavoured to keep to a strictly scientific treatment, that is to say, the description and classification of acknowledged errors, and the explanation of these by a reference to their psychical and physical conditions. At the same time, I was not able, at the close of my exposition, to avoid pointing out how the psychology leads on to the philosophy of the subject. Some of the chapters were first roughly sketched out in articles published in magazines and reviews; but these have been not only greatly enlarged, but, to a considerable extent, rewritten"--Preface.

An essay on laughter; its forms, its causes, its development and its value by James Sully ( Book )
20 editions published between 1902 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present work is, I believe, the first attempt to treat on a considerable scale the whole subject of Laughter, under its various aspects, and in its connections with our serious activities and interests. As such, it will, I feel sure, lay itself open to the criticism that it lacks completeness, or at least, proportion. A further criticism to which, I feel equally sure, it will expose itself, is that it clearly reflects the peculiarities of the experience of the writer. The anticipation of this objection does not, however, disturb me. It seems to me to be not only inevitable, but desirable--at least at the present stage of our knowledge of the subject--that one who attempts to understand an impulse, of which the intensities and the forms appear to vary greatly among men, of which the workings are often subtle, and of which the significance is by no means obvious, should, while making full use of others' impressions, draw largely on his own experience"--Preface.

Pessimism, a history and a criticism by James Sully ( Book )
27 editions published between 1877 and 2010 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In bringing out a new edition of my volume on Pessimism, I do not feel called upon to make more than one or two unimportant corrections. These consist in reducing the number of apparently independent writers on the subject. It has transpired that the author of the criticism of Hartmann's biological doctrine, referred to in the foot-note to page 204 of this volume, is no other than the versatile high-priest of the Unconscious himself, and that the Herr Taubert spoken of on pages 108 and 109 is in reality Hartmann's first wife. Perhaps an apology is due to Herr von Hartmann from one who, after making a somewhat careful study of his literary style, failed to recognise it in an anonymous work. For the rest, I may confine myself in this Preface to a brief review of the further developments of thought about life and its value since this work appeared nearly fourteen years ago. To begin with, then, the pessimistic movement in German literature has by no means spent itself

The human mind; a text-book of psychology by James Sully ( Book )
8 editions published between 1892 and 1971 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present work is an expansion and further elaboration of the doctrine set forth in my Outlines of Psychology. Although the mode of arrangement and of treatment will in the main be found to be similar, the book may be described as a new and independent publication. It is specially intended for those who desire a fuller presentment of the latest results of psychological research than was possible in a volume which aimed at being elementary and practical. Hence much more space has been given to the new developments of "physiological" and experimental psychology, to illustrations of psychological principles in the phenomena of racial and animal life, of insanity and hypnotism. At the same time, an effort has been made to illustrate the obscurity and debatableness of many of the problems of the science, and to aid the reader in arriving at a judicial conclusion on these points by historical references to the main diversities of doctrine. In this way it is hoped that the treatise will find its proper place beside the Outlines, the success of which would have made it a fatuity on my part to try to supplant it"--Preface."
