The psychology of musical talent by Carl E Seashore( Book )

17 editions published between 1919 and 2013 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph is addressed to students of applied psychology. The scientific study of the artistic mind is a somewhat baffling undertaking. There are no substantial precedents; the available scientific data are extremely meager; by nature the artist himself is but little interested in the process of his mental dissection; and, after all, the varieties of artistic minds are legion. But the time is ripe for a vigorous application of the technique of psychological inventory to practical affairs, and the discovery and fostering of human talents is indeed both practical and practicable. The system of evaluation of musical talents to be reviewed in this book will find a large field of usefulness in the elementary schools. A set of exercises is being worked out for the introduction of some of the most important tests in this series as a part of the regular instruction in certain grades of the elementary schools. This will secure a sort of "dragnet" survey of musical talents, as all the children in the community will be reached when they pass through these grades. It will stimulate an interest in the search for talent and efforts in the conservation of talent on the part of all concerned, particularly the teachers. Among the pupils it will cause a wholesome awakening to a recognition of their particular talents. For teachers of music it will stimulate the recognition of responsibility for the talented children of the community. It will be a part of the coming system of vocational and avocational advice, and should be a potent instrument in the development of community interest in music. The tests themselves constitute very profitable musical exercises. If the great musicians can live before us in the wonderful reproduction of the modern phonograph, tone-producing instruments employed in the measurement of musical talent might equally well be made to perform for popular presentation through this medium. To test this assumption we made accurate measurements of the reliability of the reproduction in phonograph records and found that, for most purposes, such a record is as good as the original instruments and that in some respects the record has an advantage over the original instrument in that it makes it possible to standardize the test material with accuracy. The first series entitled "Measures of Musical Talent" is started with five double disk records, each illustrating a basic test as follows: the sense of pitch (Chapter II) , the sense of intensity (Chapter II ), the sense of time (Chapter IV), the sense of consonance (Chapter VII) , and musical memory (Chapter XII). A second series embraces the motor tests. For this there are available instruments and methods for the measurement of timed action, rhythmic action, motility, singing in pitch, and other tests as outlined in Chapters I and X. The use of these is more limited because the test can be made only upon one individual at a time; but their application is of broader significance inasmuch as they measure basic capacities for many occupations besides music. This volume is primarily a collective and elementary presentation of the results of investigation by the author and his pupils and associates and must, therefore, go forth essentially as a communication from our laboratory, which is devoted largely to the study of the psychology of music. Limits of space preclude a more general and historical treatment"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
Elementary experiments in psychology by Carl E Seashore( Book )

32 editions published between 1908 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This manual is designed to meet the requirements for a series of individual experiments in the first course in psychology. No laboratory facilities are required. This is not a laboratory manual. It is a manual of experiments which the student should perform before he is admitted to the laboratory, or in case he does not intend to pursue the subject beyond one course. It is not a text-book by itself, but a supplement to any good text-book. It does not review the field of psychology, but simply furnishes the intensive, individual, experimental part of the instruction. It does not furnish technical instruction on methods of experimenting, but, like the conversational method of teaching language, everywhere encourages right procedure. It does not purport to cover the most important matters; sometimes an almost insignificant topic (for example, the subject of the first chapter) is chosen for the purpose of deepening insight. It by no means supplants the class demonstrations and experiments, except in the few topics selected, and even here the instructor may profitably supplement and show how the same experiments may be performed by the usual laboratory apparatus"--Preface.

Psychology in daily life by Carl E Seashore( Book )

23 editions published between 1913 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The illumination of practice by principle in matters psychological, is the keynote of the undertaking of the present volume. By the nature of the subject the unity of the present volume is selective rather than consecutive; the common bearing of the exposition is directed to the expressions of mental procedure in ordinary activities. In eclectic manner, but with a singleness of purpose, the volume covers certain areas of contact between the results of psychology and the practical expression of mental processes in current situations and occupations. The rapprochement will serve to quicken the appreciation of the message which psychology brings to daily life, to deepen understanding, and thereby extend control. The simple statement of the text and the familiarity of the range of illustration will recommend the volume to the increasing numbers of readers and students whose natural bent and occupation gives them an interest in the conduct of mind"--Introduction.

Introduction to psychology by Carl E Seashore( Book )

19 editions published between 1923 and 1967 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Not psychology, but to psychologize' represents the educational objective toward which this book has been written. This fact accounts for certain characteristics as to method of presentation, selection and arrangement of content, direct address, and changes in style, all of which contribute toward action. It also accounts for the fact that the book is not a dictionary of psychological definitions or an encyclopedia of psychological facts. There is no general agreement among psychologists as to what should constitute a first year course in psychology. The selection of topics has been made on the basis of experience in the classroom, from the standpoint that the aim of the course is not to make technical psychologists, but to make an introduction to psychology function in the life of all students both in and after college. This accounts for the frequent references to the beauty of mental life and the use that a given bit of knowledge may have in the direction of human energies, particularly toward mental health and education. The physiological part is thrown into the background and touched on but lightly, because a common mistake in the teaching of psychology is to waste the time for psychology in teaching anatomy and physiology; the essential facts about the nervous system are presented, largely through illustrations, in the Appendix.
