Psychology of the other-one, an introductory text-book of psychology by Max F Meyer( )

18 editions published between 1921 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present book is the result of the necessity, existing in some colleges and universities, of giving elementary instruction in modern psychology to college students who are only members of the freshman class, to students who have never studied psychology before, to students who may never study it later, to students who have little knowledge of physics and chemistry and perhaps still less of biology, to students who take an elementary course in psychology in order to take afterwards a course in educational psychology, and to students who want elementary psychology for a better understanding of the social sciences. For these classes of college students this book is written as a text to be elaborated by the instructor as he wishes, by the aid of lectures, additional reading assignments or laboratory work"--Preface.

Psychology: an elementary text-book by Hermann Ebbinghaus( )

13 editions published between 1908 and 2015 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author presents only that which is generally accepted by psychological science; on the other hand, he has given to the highest constructive processes of the human mind, religion, art, and morality, the attention which they deserve because of their tremendous importance for human life."

The problem of form in painting and sculpture by Adolf von Hildebrand( Book )

22 editions published between 1097 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alors que sculpture et peinture étaient caractérisées, par contraste avec l'architecture, comme des arts d'imitation, Hildebrand, sculpteur et théoricien de l'esthétique nouvelle, montre avec cet ouvrage paru en 1913, que les lois de perception et de construction des formes sont aussi objectives que les lois architecturales. Enonçant ainsi les principes d'une culture des formes qui fera autorité au XXe siècle, il montre aussi comment la clarification des formes plastiques constitue encore une des voies les plus sûres d'accès à la connaissance des lois de la perception des formes et à celle de l'interaction de nos différents sens
Contributions to a psychological theory of music by Max F Meyer( )

Abnormal psychology, "when the other-one astonishes us, " by Max F Meyer( )

7 editions published between 1927 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Some are said by their fellows "not to think straight"--Paranoia. Some often are seen "falling" on the street--epilepsy. Some are considered "growing stupid" by their fellows, to whom they seem to live their intellectual lives backwards, working down, so to speak, from the top of the ladder to the bottom, "losing their minds"--dementia. Some exhibit their "second childhood" in youth--dementia praecox. Some seem to be weak, their "minds do not seem capable of any effort"--psychasthenia. Some seem to "break down at first gradually and finally with great rapidity completely"--general paralysis, also called progressive paralysis. Some women seem to have gone mad simply because they belong to the "female division of society"--hysteria (womb trouble). Some men act much like these women although, being males, they possess no womb; they are then said to possess mental complexes in new fashioned terminology. Some are said to be hard to teach, "not keen, having a dull mind"--hebephrenia. Some can "no longer talk as well" as formerly--aphasia, in modern terminology. Some "lose their external interests and devote themselves to inward ruminations"--autistic personality, in more recent terminology. And so forth ad infinitum, without any theoretical principles of scientific merit explaining the sources of these troubles. The student wonders and almost concludes that his confusion resulting from being presented with a chaos of empirically collected symptoms--syndromes they nowadays say in order to mystify him still more--is a virtue. He learns so many details, --even though they are disconnected. But much, in the sense of one comprehensive view, is scientifically more valuable than many details devoid of any logic, according to the Latin proverb "non multa, sed multum." The present book tries to show the student that these symptoms can be classified in a simple manner by deduction, and that his clarity of thought replacing his former confusion is a virtue although the chaos of symptoms and syndromes thereby loses its impressive mystery, so cherished by the poetic-esthetic longings of the crowd untrained in scientific thinking. So far as using this book as a college text is concerned, my endeavor has been to make it suitable in a double way: (1) as a first course in psychology for the medical student, whose curriculum is so crowded that whatever need not be included in his text must be omitted, especially pure metaphysics; and (2) as a second course for that student in liberal arts who has had an introductory and general course in psychology"--Preface.
