Comparative psychology by Fred A Moss ( Book )
27 editions published between 1934 and 1949 in English and Undetermined and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The increasing number of courses offered in Comparative Psychology gives some indication of the importance of the subject. Realizing the need for a satisfactory textbook in this field, a number of men who had been working in Animal Psychology convened at the Cornell meeting of the American Psychological Association and planned an introductory textbook. Each of them prepared independently a suggestive outline for the book as a whole. After studying this outline, a committee selected what appeared to be the most important topics and allocated the assignments among the men according to their specializations. Thereafter each contributor developed his topic in his own way and assumed full responsibility for content, for interpretation of data, and for placement of emphasis. The book is thoroughly documented, so that anyone wishing to go back to the original sources will have no difficulty in so doing. The editor wishes to commend the contributors for their systematic team work in attempting to reduce or eliminate needless repetition of closely related subject matter. There was no effort whatever to curb or to eliminate diverse opinions on controversial subjects; such opinions are omnipresent in rapidly changing subjects, and no student is any the worse for encountering them in his reading at the very outset. Through cooperative efforts, singularly free from the secretive reserve sometimes found among specialists, a book more representative of Comparative Psychology as it is today has been obtained than could reasonably be expected from the hand of a single contributor in this varied and everexpanding field. Breadth of view and wealth of subject matter more than compensate for a certain lack of unification inevitably present in a work of this kind"Preface.

Applications of psychology by Fred A Moss ( Book )
11 editions published in 1929 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For a number of years, instructors of elementary classes in psychology have desired a book to be used during the second semester which would show how the principles taught in the general psychology during the first semester operate in the various professional and industrial fields. It is to supply such a need that this book was written. The book has been used for three years in mimeographed form with approximately six hundred elementary students each year. In that way it has been possible to prepare a book especially adapted to the particular needs of those whose training in psychology has not been extensive. This book is written from the point of view which regards psychology as one of the natural sciences rather than as a branch of philosophy. An effort has been made to present the experimental findings of scientific investigators without indulging in a partisan discussion of controversial subjects. The book is divided into three parts. Part I deals with those principles which apply equally to the behavior and efficiency of all men. Part II deals with the nature and causes of individual differences. Part III, which is the largest part, considers the specific applications of psychology in the professional and industrial fields"--Preface.

Foundations of abnormal psychology by Fred August Moss ( )
7 editions published between 1932 and 1936 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the objective scientist undertakes the study of any phenomenon, he first attempts to discover the physical cause producing it; he next looks for the physical machinery through which this cause acts. Knowing the cause and the underlying machinery, he can more adequately describe and explain the phenomenon. As a final step, he may attempt to devise methods of controlling or preventing the phenomenon. The above procedure has been followed insofar as possible in our study of mental disorder. We begin by giving the physical agents that produce the disorder; we next consider the underlying tissue pathology which these agents produce; third, we consider the mental abnormalities resulting from this tissue pathology; and fourth, we consider methods for preventing the disorder or for curing it when once it is acquired. In those instances in which the physical cause and pathology are unknown, we have been frank to say so. We recognize that the science of abnormal psychology is still in its infancy, and it is to be expected that the next ten years will bring many changes and additions to the material set forth in this book.
