Modern ideas about children by Alfred Binet( Book )

141 editions published between 1909 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il s'agit du dernier ouvrage d'Alfred Binet (1857-1911) publié de son vivant ; c'est le plus connu de tous. On peut le considérer comme le testament psychologique de l'auteur pour l'éducation de l'enfant. C'est un livre engagé, à la fois personnel et général, où il s'est proposé de montrer, essentiellement à partir de son expérience personnelle, que l'introduction en pédagogie de recherches scientifiques est indispensable si l'on veut améliorer les méthodes d'enseignement et perfectionner l'art de connaître les aptitudes des enfants

Alterations of personality by Alfred Binet( Book )

61 editions published between 1892 and 2010 in French and English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fifteen years ago researches in pathological psychology, based upon the study of hysteria and suggestion, were begun in France, England, and other countries. Physiologists and philosophers gave themselves up enthusiastically to this new line of work, and in a short time a very considerable number of observations and experiments of different sorts were collected. The principal questions taken up with more or less fruitfulness were hallucinations, paralysis by suggestion, alterations of personality, diseases of memory, muscular sense, suggestion both in the waking state and in hypnosis, unconscious suggestion, etc. As these researches were multiplied and extended, many discussions arose. My intention in writing this book is not to keep up the discussions of the schools. Instead of opposing my experiments to those of other authors, I wish to gather together all the results that have been reached in the study of one question in order to find out which of these results naturally go together and allow themselves to be grouped under general principles. I shall cite only those experiments which have been confirmed by all and which give a constant result, no matter from what point of view they may be conducted. And I shall suggest merely, without any attempt at estimation, those phenomena which have been observed so far only by one person, and which can not therefore as yet be brought into the class of known and accepted facts, and I shall subject my own works to this rule just as I do those of others. I propose to give a detailed account of the result of these recent researches on the alterations of personality"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

L'étude expérimentale de l'intelligence by Alfred Binet( Book )

52 editions published between 1903 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre (1903) marque une ère nouvelle en psychologie où l'étude de l'intelligence ne sera plus abordée de manière spéculative mais de manière de plus en plus scientifique. Binet propose de nouvelles méthodes d'investigation de la pensée qu'il va utiliser sur ses deux filles, inaugurant ainsi une des plus belles études de psychologie différentielle de l'intelligence. Bien qu'il aborde ici l'étude de l'intelligence de manière uniquement qualitative, on trouve cependant dans cet ouvrage les prémisses de son œuvre sur la mesure quantitative de l'intelligence (1904-1911) qui aboutira quelques années plus tard à la notion de QI
The psychic life of micro-organisms. A study in experimental psychology by Alfred Binet( Book )

45 editions published between 1888 and 2010 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Study the psychic life of. . . lower organisms. . . the action of the external world felt by the organism : or sensibility ; ... the reaction of the organisms on the external world : or movement."--Preface
L'âme et le corps by Alfred Binet( Book )

73 editions published between 1905 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage de Binet (1905) fut l'aboutissement d'une longue série de recherches et de réflexions métaphysiques. L'objet de ce livre est d'examiner, à la lumière de la psychologie expérimentale, comment doit être posé et résolu le problème de la distinction et des rapports du mental (esprit, âme) et du physique (matière, corps). Voici la méthode pour distinguer la matière de l'esprit : 1° poser en principe l'existence du connaissable ; 2° chercher si l'on est fondé en raison à y établir une distinction absolument fondamentale en esprit et matière ; 3° cataloguer les objets mentaux et les objets matériels en examinant à propos de chacun d'eux ce qui est matériel ou ce qui est mental
La mesure de développement de l'intelligence chez les jeunes enfants by Alfred Binet( Book )

78 editions published between 1909 and 2006 in 4 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il y a plus d'un siècle que le premier test d'intelligence a été proposé par Alfred Binet et Théodore Simon. L'élaboration de la première version de l'échelle métrique d' l'intelligence publiée en 1905 sera réalisée dans le but de dépister les enfants arriérés. La première version de ce test était peu précise et ne comportait aucune indication d'âge. Progressivement Binet va adapter son échelle aux enfants des écoles. La version définitive du test date de 1911
A method of measuring the development of the intelligence of young children by Alfred Binet( Book )

27 editions published between 1912 and 2012 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The method here presented is one by which the intelligence of a child may be estimated. The method consists in asking the child some precise questions and having him perform some simple experiments; these questions and experiments are called tests. As much research has revealed which of these tests a normal child passes successfully at a given age, it is easy to ascertain whether the child under examination gives results equal to the normal child of his age, or whether he is advanced or retarded in relation to this norm. We give first the description of the tests and the instructions necessary for their application. In a second part we point out the general conditions to be observed in holding examinations, and the methods of calculation used in estimating the intelligence of children."

Animal magnetism by Alfred Binet( Book )

47 editions published between 1888 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We think it well to state that this work was written in the environment of the Salpt̊rir̈e. By this we not only mean that our descriptions apply to facts observed in that hospital, but also that our personal observations were made in accordance with the method inaugurated by M. Charcot, the chief of the school of the Salpt̊rir̈e, that is, in accordance with the experimental method which is illustrated by clinical science. While relying on the observation of spontaneous facts, we have strengthened these facts by experiments. It would at present be premature to write a didactic treatise on animal magnetism and hypnotism. This work only aims at giving an account of special researches which, notwithstanding their number and variety, will not justify general conclusions on the question. After receiving this warning, the reader will not be surprised to meet with occasional breaches of continuity, which are, however, more apparent than real, and which are due to our resolution not to speak of experiments which we have not verified for ourselves"--Preface.

The intelligence of the feeble-minded by Alfred Binet( Book )

18 editions published between 1916 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text represents information from articles published in 1908 and 1909 issues of L'Anně Psychologique. It is because our own experience has led us to the same conclusions, wherever we have studied the same points, that we have come to have such a profound regard for Binet that we feel like pronouncing this the most important and enlightening work on the real nature of the mental defective, that has ever appeared. The study of the language of the feeble-minded will also be found most illuminating in a region usually characterized by darkness. Finally the discussion of feeble-mindedness and dementia is quite as timely and enlightening as the rest. We have included these various articles in this volume for two reasons: first, because they all contribute to our knowledge of the feeble-minded; and second, they all give us further illustration of the way Binet used his own Measuring Scale."

Le magnétisme animal by Alfred Binet( Book )

44 editions published between 1881 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alfred Binet (1857-1911) et Charles Féré (1852-1907) ont publié en 1887 un ouvrage sur le magnétisme animal qui a fait date dans l'histoire de la psychologie. En effet, c'est la première fois que la question de l'hypnose, telle qu'elle était pratiquée à la Salpêtrière, était présentée dans le contexte de recherches expérimentales. Ce livre est l'oeuvre de deux des collaborateurs les plus assidus de Charcot, qui ont pu expérimenter toutes les méthodes de magnétisme, reproduire toutes les expériences relatées par les magnétiseurs, et les soumettre à une analyse critique et sévère
