The theory of thought : a treatise on deductive logic by Noah K Davis( Book )

16 editions published between 1880 and 2011 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This treatise reverts to Aristotle, and is largely a restatement of his theory as colored by filtration through mediaeval mind. "Since his day," says Kant, "Logic has taken no backward step, and also up to this time it has been able to take no step forward, and thus, to all appearance, is concluded and perfected." A fiery trial for ages has neither consumed it nor refined it, and it is likely to remain perpetually an accepted part of the sum of human knowledge. Hence, in treating the old Logic, I have aimed at clear, correct, and complete statement rather than at any modification. Of late years many innovations have been proposed, some of which are examined and criticized. Whenever in the treatise a new view is offered, it is distinctly indicated as such. A great number and variety of examples, both for illustration and for praxis, mitigating somewhat the severity of the subject, seemed to me desirable. They have been collected from every available source; some are ancient, some modern, many are newly invented"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Elements of psychology by Noah K Davis( Book )

19 editions published between 1892 and 1905 in English and Polish and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This treatise is intended primarily for those who have not already studied psychology, and now propose to give it thoughtful attention. It is therefore elementary, as its title indicates, and is introductory to the abundant and growing literature of the science. Though no previous acquaintance with the subject is requisite, yet as it can by no means be made light and easy, even an elementary treatise must presuppose mental maturity in the reader, and habits of thoughtful study. For him I have tried to prepare a statement of psychological doctrine broad and true, on which he may build by his own thinking and wider reading. If his occupations do not permit this, he will at least have acquired a rounded knowledge of the generally approved principles and chief features of the science. A reader already acquainted with the history and literature of psychology will find many familiar things restated. Let him remember that the treatise is for the novice. But he will find some familiar things modified, and some things new. A few may be indicated as follows: The material object immediately perceived; the argument for immediate perception; the modified view of intuition; the argument for duality; the relation of feeling to cognition; the character and place assigned to belief; the separation of feeling and desire; the defense of freedom in willing"--Preface.
