Abstract:

"Experimental psychology has reached the stage of maturity. There is a vast amount of well-substantiated fact which forms the foundation of the science, and we have felt that these facts should be presented to the young student of psychology in terms free from the bias of metaphysical presuppositions or of psychological systems. In short, our aim has been to present such a factual text as one should expect from a science. Accordingly, theoretical discussions have been to a great extent omitted and controversial points avoided. Our purpose has been to achieve, not a handbook encumbered with a mass of detailed information, dates, the names of investigators and the titles of monographs, but a generalized statement of fundamental facts in so far as generalization is possible at this time"--Preface.
