Abstract:

This ambitious collaboration concentrates on the representation of areas and issues relating to "fundamental" psychology. ... Coverage includes most of the larger, traditionally discriminated subdivisions of fundamental psychology (sensory processes and perception, learning, motivation, emotion, cognition, development, personality, social psychology) and such major intersectional areas as psychology in relation to: philosophy, mathematics, the neurosciences, evolutionary biology, and linguistics. /// Several probing essays confront problems of general systematic import, and another subgroup--contributed by humanists as well as psychologists--explores the human impact of psychology. The interrelations of dynamic and fundamental psychology are considered in chapters on experimental psychoanalysis, psychoanalysis and behavior theory, and personality. /// Although this book contains much history, it is not primarily a historical study. The central emphasis is "Where do we stand at the present time?" Thus, this work is essentially present-centered, and from that center is as much forward-looking as backward-looking.
