For the first time, David Katz's classic monograph The World of Touch has been translated into English. Regarded as one of the premiere experimental psychologists, Katz vigorously opposed the atomism and "tachistoscopic" mentality typical of the sensory psychology of his day.

In The World of Touch, Katz sought to dispel the invidious distinction between the supposedly higher (e.g., vision, audition) and lower (e.g., touch) senses. To help touch regain its original prominence in the field, Katz demonstrated, through very simple, yet creative experiments, how fascinating the abilities of touch are, and how valuable the tactual stimulus can be in specifying objects, surfaces, substances, and events. In addition, Katz emphasized the importance of higher-order invariants in the perception of objects, and the holistic quality of perception in time as well as space.

Review:

For some two decades, Ilse Grubrich-Simitis has been a leading - probably the leading - student of Freud. Her readings of the fundamental texts of psychoanalysis are exemplary: they have successfully established what is in them and should help to correct what Freud bashers 'claim' is in them, two very different things. In addition to her impeccable scholarship, she brings to bear a solid quantity of good sense which invites, almost compels, assent. - Peter Gay, Harvard University, USA
