"Although a textbook in general psychology is necessary to acquaint the student with the concepts, the vocabulary, and the over-all framework of the field, the student frequently wants more than a textbook can provide. He is not content to learn about psychology, he wants to come to grips with the subject itself, he wants to learn psychology. To do that he must turn to Cattell, to Galton, to Freud, to Thorndike, and to the other authors whose writings are represented in this volume. I believe the student will enjoy reading these writings in the original. I hope he will learn that for an understanding of the "great books" or of the "classical experiments" in psychology he should turn directly to these books and these experiments. In general the best thinkers and the best experimenters are also excellent writers. In addition, there is a vigor and freshness in original work which stimulates and challenges. I feel that these readings are suitable as an accompaniment for any general introduction to psychology. The sequence in which the chapters are presented in this volume is primarily a historical one: the first topics to be investigated in psychology were the senses, the most recent ones have been social behavior and personality. Other topics are intermediate. The basic and least technical contributions in any field usually appear early in the development of the field. For this reason most of the studies of the senses which are included in this volume are necessarily old"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

Children of the Crèche by Wayne Dennis( Book )

7 editions published between 1973 and 1991 in English and Japanese and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports the experiential deprivation and intellectual retardation of children from the Creche, a Lebanese social agency devoted to the care of foundlings from birth to 6 years. Begun in 1955, this study explored the role of environment, specifically, the effects of adoption, on iq. Results showed that the mean iq for both boys and girls after the first year of institutionalization was slightly above 50. It was found that, as a group, children adopted from the Creche within the first 2 years of live overcame their initial retardation, reaching and maintaining a mean iq of approximately 100. But children adopted after the age of 2 years did not overcome their preadoptive retardation indicating that experiential deprivation can have severe and enduring consequences. (St)
Current trends in psychology by Wayne Dennis( Book )

19 editions published between 1947 and 2012 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During World War II every psychologist had a job to do. His contributions sometimes were made in uniform and sometimes in whatever vestless and cuffless suit was available. Whether in uniform or not, the psychologist's work was related to the war effort or to the essential war functions of the nation. When the war ended, the psychologist found that his responsibilities were no less urgent. For the future his prospects seem to be even heavier burdens and a neverending path. Since the years 1940 and 1941, the psychologist has shown himself capable of performing duties not previously allotted to him, or, for that matter, not previously delegated to anyone else. There has grown up a better understanding of the potential functions of the psychologist, an understanding which creates new assignments for him. Instead of a reluctance to intrust to him problems in human behavior, there is today an insistence that he attempt problems with which perhaps he is not yet prepared to deal. Clearly these past few years have been an era of great change in psychology, as they have in many other fields. It is unfortunate that during these dramatic and eventful times, there were few professional meetings and little time or opportunity for the discussion of professional problems. With the return of the possibility of holding professional meetings, it occurred to us that a symposium on current trends in psychology would be most timely and desirable. With the cordial support of the administrative officials of the University, we were able to hold at the University of Pittsburgh, on March 5 and 6, 1947, a conference on current trends in psychology. The present volume contains the papers delivered then. In planning our program we attempted to include in it discussions of recent advances and of probable future developments in several fields of psychology. There necessarily was a limit to the number of fields which could be included. In each chosen area of psychology we selected a speaker who is now active in that field"--Preface.
