About this Item

23 cm o.J. ca 1935. 310 S. Ledereinband. Sprache: Englisch, guter Zustand, papierbedingt stark gebräunt, Schnitt fleckig, INTRODUCTION by ERNEST JONES "PSYCHOLOGY has been called the science of the twentieth century. This is perhaps true in so far as progress in psychological knowledge has been far greater during the past forty or fifty years than during many other centuries together. But it is not at all true in the sense in which it is usually intended, nor is there any sign at present of its becoming true before the twentieth century is over. For what the statement implies is that, just as physics profoundly influenced the thought of the seventeenth century, chemistry that of the eighteenth, and biology that of the nineteenth, affecting the general outlook on life characteristic of those times, so psychology is supposed to be influencing the thought and outlook of the present century."
