Abstract:

"The late Professor Weiss urged a conception of psychology in terms of the development of the infant into an adult in a cooperative human society, which genetic viewpoint has been adopted in this book. For this reason, considerable emphasis has been placed upon the nature of the human organism and its place in the phylogenetic series, to the stimulus-response mechanisms, and to the modifications of behavior of the individual in making adequate adjustment to his physical and social environment. While the environmental factors in shaping behavior have received a prominent place, the author has attempted constantly to stress the importance of the individual as a prominent factor in determining his behavior. Man's superiority over the other animals lies, in the greater modifiability of his behavior and in its extreme variability. Biologically, this fact is expressed in his gross bodily structures, such as the hands and speech mechanisms, and by the enormous overgrowth of the cerebral hemispheres"--Preface.
