There is today widespread recognition of the fact that the future of human civilization depends to a high degree upon Man's capacity to understand the forces and factors which control his own behaviour. Such understanding must be achieved, not only as regards individual conduct, but equally as regards the mass phenomena resulting from group contacts, which are becoming increasingly intimate and influential. Until this present volume, nowhere have the three sciences of sociology, psychology and social anthropology been properly mobilized to deal with the social problems which yearly grow more p

Dr. Thouless examines meticulously the aims, methods and results of a wide range of fascinating work: the classic experiments in reproducing drawings, guessing cards, and throwing dice are all rigorously anaysed, and research work on gifted stafe performers is looked at with a fresh, critical eye. Dr. Thouless also has much to say on method. He examines the control of possible fraud in both subject and experimenter in in answering the crucial question "Can the apparent successes be explained by chance", leads the reader to a balanced judgement on the significance of laboratory results. A final chapter suggests some useful lines for further research

Preface The existence of a dangerous half-knowledge of homosexuality, which half-knowledge degrades public opinion and obscures the real social problem, prompts me to urge consideration of certain phases of the question on which my own experience and observations may cast some light. Most of the available studies of inversion are designed primarily for the use of students of morbid psychology. My treatment of the subject should not compete or conflict with these scientific studies, but may be of more particular use to those who find themselves at a loss to provide practical advice for patients or penitents of confused sex. I hope that through the agency of charitable physicians, clergymen, or other advisers this book may find its way into the hands of many persons to whom it may be a source of comfort and encouragement.

A manual of psychology by George Frederick Stout( Book )

13 editions published between 1899 and 1970 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An effective introduction to Psychology must be clothed in living flesh and blood. The most essential gift to be imparted to the beginner is a real interest in the subject, and a real power of dealing with it even when familiar formulas fail him. He ought to be able to do riders in Psychology as he does riders in Euclid. It is true that there are students who cannot advance so far from lack of natural endowment. But even for them a treatment full enough to be interesting and so rememberable is better than arid and dogmatic statements. Certainly the teacher who needs Psychology for educational purposes would do better to leave the subject alone altogether than to learn it in a merely external way"--Preface.
