Abstract:

"This is a book for the beginner, who is apt to be interested primarily in such practical issues of psychology as how to study or how to select a wife; the instructor, on the other hand, is apt to be more concerned with providing a concept of the method and scope of the subject and its status as a science. Since the ultimate aim of the science of psychology is the understanding and prediction of human behavior, the interests of student and instructor are not actually mutually exclusive. This book has been written in the confidence that both types of interest can be to some degree satisfied in the same volume. It is the thesis of this book that a human individual is a biological organism living in a social environment, and that it is therefore necessary, if we are to understand the behavior of human beings, to study the nature of biological organisms and the nature of their social environment. The organization of the chapters has been made so that this aim could be realized"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
