Comparative physiology of the brain and comparative psychology by Jacques Loeb( Book )

1 edition published in 1900 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the purpose of this book to serve as a short introduction to the comparative physiology of the brain and of the central nervous system. Physiology has thus far been essentially the physiology of Vertebrates. I am convinced, however, that for the establishment of the laws of life-phenomena a broader basis is necessary. Such a basis can be furnished only by a comparative physiology which includes all classes of the animal kingdom. I have added at the end of each chapter a list of the chief papers of which I have made use. Although far from complete, this may serve the beginner as a guide for the further study of the subjects touched upon"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)

The major symptoms of hysteria; fifteen lectures given in the Medical School of Harvard University by Pierre Janet( Book )

1 edition published in 1907 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the occasion of the inauguration of the new buildings of the Medical School of Harvard University in Boston, President Eliot and Dr. J.J. Putnam, professor of the diseases of the nervous system, asked me to deliver before the students some lectures about pathological psychology. I greatly appreciated this honour, and tried to sum up before the American students some elementary psychological researches about a well-known disease, hysteria, in order to show them how the study of the mental state of the patient can sometimes be useful to explain many disturbances and to give some unity to apparently discordant symptoms. The fifteen lectures presented in this book were given in the Harvard Medical School between the fifteenth of October and the end of November, 1906. Some of these lectures were also delivered in Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore, at the request of Professor J.M. Baldwin, and in the medical school of Columbia University in New York, at that of Professor Allen Starr. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

A present-day conception of mental disorders by C. Macfie Campbell( Book )

1 edition published in 1924 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This lecture proposes to deal with human nature working under difficulties, and to choose one small portion of that broad problem. I should like to interest you in some facts rather than in words, in a sample of the real stuff of human life rather than in the traditional and threadbare phrases with which we too often disguise the actual world, giving ourselves a pleasing illusion of knowledge. I ask you, therefore, to consider our topic to be not "mental disorders," but men, women, and children in difficulty, suffering, hoping, thwarted, groping. Many people are suffering from a mental disorder, who in the current estimate of their friends are considered only as eccentric, model, disagreeable, extreme, wicked, virtuous, emancipated, etc. The same situation is met in regard to other disorders. In referring to a reaction as a mental disorder we do not necessarily mean that the condition is severe or serious. Mental disorders may be mild, just as physical disorders may be; mental indigestion may be of as many degrees as physical indigestion, and an emotional disturbance may be as mild as an attack of chicken-pox. Mental disorder may masquerade under many disguises, and human nature in difficulties may resort to many subtle evasions and modes of defense; we are so much under the spell of old-fashioned conceptions of human behavior that the real driving forces of the personality escape us, while we label behavior with the conventional ethical or social terms. There are a group of patients, of people who recognize that they are sick, and come to the physician for treatment; they admit that they have a disorder, but they are perhaps indignant at the suggestion that their trouble is mental. Their symptoms may have nothing mental about them, but may be the ordinary symptoms of respectable ailments; they come for their headache or dizziness or weakness, or they have palpitation or fainting attacks, or their digestive system is a source of much interest and annoyance, or they have indications that some of the other internal organs are out of gear. Yet these apparently simple symptoms may be of complex origin; they may be the outcroppings above the surface of important emotional reactions, only to be understood in the setting of these reactions. We have to discard our mediæval attitude toward these sick or handicapped people, and to study the problem which they present as a problem of human nature working under difficulties. We have to study the disordered behavior of the total organism in the same way in which we study the disordered behavior of a single organ. When we come to those far-reaching disorders of the personality in which the patient suffers from profound melancholy, or gives way to exuberant excitement, or is dominated by sounds or voices of subjective origin, or sees the world banded against him in a strange web of persecution, the principles of explanation so far utilized seem to leave us in the lurch. Neither structural damage, nor chronic poisoning of the brain, nor simple disorder of the instincts explains these specifically human disorders. A modern attitude to these ailments means that at the earliest indication of trouble, when treatment has most chance of being useful, these patients will be encouraged to seek advice, where there are available suitable facilities for diagnosis and treatment"--Book.

Suggestion and autosuggestion : a psychological and pedagogical study based upon the investigations made by the new Nancy school by Charles Baudouin( Book )

2 editions published in 1920 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the year 1910 there has been in progress at Nancy a psychological and medico-pedagogical movement which we are entitled to regard as one of the notable scientific happenings of the present epoch. The terms autosuggestion, the education of the will, the force of thought, self-control, have long been current. But with the rise of the New Nancy School we have for the first time the elements of a really methodical synthesis of the phenomena and the disciplines which these terms connote. The pioneer in this development is a man whose devotion is rivaled by his modesty. During the years 1885 and 1886, Emile Coué witnessed the work and the experiments of Liébault, who was, as everyone knows, the father of the doctrine of suggestion, the founder of the first Nancy school, and the teacher of Bernheim. By the closing years of the nineteenth century, Coué had grasped the thought of which he was in search. He discovered in autosuggestion the powerful and widely diffused force of which hypnotic suggestion, the only form of suggestion hiitherto studied in medicine, is but one among many applications"--Preface.

The psychology of insanity by Bernard Hart( Book )

1 edition published in 1916 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book lays no claim to be a comprehensive treatise upon the psychology of insanity. The number of independent schools of thought existing at the present day, and the fundamental divergence in their methods of investigation, make it obviously impossible to compress such a treatise into the limits of a small volume. All that has been attempted here is the presentation of certain recent developments in abnormal psychology which have already yielded results of fundamental importance, and which seem to offer an exceptionally promising field for further investigation. Many of the theories to which he will be introduced have not as yet been firmly established. A very large number of the general principles enunciated in this book are due to the genius of Prof. Freud of Vienna, probably the most original and fertile thinker who has yet entered the field of abnormal psychology. Although, however, I cannot easily express the extent to which I am indebted to him, I am by no means prepared to embrace the whole of the vast body of doctrines which Freud and his followers have now laid down"--Preface.
