Abstract:

"To the practical teacher of Psychology, who has spent years in the recitation-room, no apology is needed for presenting a new text-book in that much-contested field; for every true teacher realizes that, however much has been accomplished in the past, very much more remains to be done before Psychology as a science can take rank, in perfection of form and in completeness of evolution, with some of its more advanced congeners in the hierarchy of science. The writer of this new candidate for popular favor does not flatter himself that, in this work, he has accomplished the long-sought desideratum of a true positive science of mind, adequate to the wants of humanity in the afternoon of the nineteenth century; but he ventures to indulge the hope that, while he has added something to the logical evolution and classification of the mental faculties, processes, and products, he has at the same time, as the result of sixteen years of labor in the recitation-room, been enabled to present the recognized facts and principles of Psychology in a form which will commend itself to the unbiased judgment of the practical teacher, and tend, in some degree, to popularize this important but much neglected science. It is useless to consume time in pointing out the novelties that appear in this book; the teacher will readily detect them, and to his candid judgment they are unreservedly committed, with the hope that, if they do not always find acceptance, they may at least provoke to a reexamination of the contested points, and thus lead to more perfect results in the future"--Preface.
