Fact and fable in psychology by Joseph Jastrow ( Book )
26 editions published between 1900 and 1971 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present collection of essays is offered as a contribution towards the realization of a sounder interest in and a more intimate appreciation of certain problems upon which psychology has an authoritative charge to make to the public jury. These essays take their stand distinctively upon one side of certain issues, and as determinately as the situation seems to warrant, antagonize contrary positions; they aim to oppose certain tendencies and to support others; to show that the sound and profitable interest in mental life is in the usual and normal, and that the resolute pursuit of this interest necessarily results in bringing the apparently irregular phenomena of the mental world within the field of illumination of the more familiar and the law-abiding. They further aim to illustrate that misconceptions in psychology, as in other realms, are as often the result of bad logic as of defective observation, and that both are apt to be called into being by inherent mental prepossessions. Some of the essays are more especially occupied with an analysis of the defective logic which lends plausibility to and induces credence in certain beliefs; others bring forward contributions to an understanding of phenomena about which misconception is likely to arise; still others are presented as psychological investigations which, it is believed, command a somewhat general interest"--Preface.

The subconscious by Joseph Jastrow ( Book )
27 editions published between 1896 and 1969 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this essay in descriptive psychology is to provide a survey of a comprehensive aspect of human psychic endowment. The very definition of psychology as the science of consciousness has tended to focus attention upon conditions of high introspective lucidity, and, by implication, to look upon areas from which such illumination is withdrawn, as quite too obscurely lighted for profitable examination. Thus casually visited, and with no vital share in the psychologist's concerns, the abode of the subconscious has drifted into the service of a lumberroom, in which to deposit what finds no place in the mind's active economies. As a statement of its natural import, its comprehensive scope in the familiar fields of normal life and in the perplexing mazes of the abnormal, I have undertaken a systematic exposition of subconscious functioning. It requires a volume to convey a proper conception of the intimacy of such participation in the normal trend of the mind's affairs; and, with similarly motived excursions into the abnormal field, of the instructive issues that ensue when its role is imperfectly played. There is, indeed, no corner of the mental establishment that can well remain unvisited, if one would appreciate the pervasiveness of this influence in the household. It is for such a tour of inspection, undertaken with systematic purpose, that the book offers its services as a modest cicerone. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

The qualities of men; an essay in appreciation by Joseph Jastrow ( Book )
6 editions published between 1910 and 2010 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"A study of the qualities of men in which a psychological interest in humanity is prominent, may properly be expected to undertake an analysis of the fundamental factors in human nature; their transformation in human nurture; and their values in growth, education, and vocation. This is indeed the basal problem in the psychology of human traits. I have not slighted it, and am engaged in a modest attempt to interpret what modern psychology has to say on the subject. In the preparation for that work, I found the more general bearings of the problems of human quality constantly growing in interest and insistently demanding formulation. I found, too, that their treatment made natural a more general form of statement and a wider appeal; while yet it could be reconciled to a seeming neglect of the psychological analysis at closer range. The present essay thus represents an expansion of the conclusions of a study, the preliminaries of which are not overlooked but merged in the composite contours of a generalizing interest"--Preface.
