Mental development in the child and the race; methods and processes by James Mark Baldwin( Book )

99 editions published between 1894 and 2012 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book was begun as a series of articles reporting observations on infants published in in 1890-1892. In the prosecution of this purpose, however, I found it necessary constantly to enlarge my scope for the entertainment of a widened genetic view. This came to clearer consciousness in the treatment of the child's imitations, especially when I came to the relation of imitation to volition. This occupied my thought, the result being the conviction that no consistent view of mental development in the individual could possibly be reached without a doctrine of the race development of consciousness,--i.e., the great problem of the evolution of mind. I have a view to a possible synthesis of the current biological theory of organic adaptation with the doctrine of the infant's development. My book is then mainly a treatise on this problem. For this reason the question of arrangement was an excessively difficult one to me. The relations of individual development to race development are so intimate--the two are so identical, in fact--that no topic in the one can be treated with great clearness without assuming results in the other. The earliest chapters are devoted to the statement of the genetic problem, with reports of the facts of infant life and the methods of investigating them. There is a chapter on the detailed analysis of handwriting. Then follows the theory of adaptation, and a genetic view in detail of the progress of mental development in in its great stages, Memory, Association, Attention, Thought, Self-consciousness, and Volition"--Preface.

Social and ethical interpretations in mental development; a study in social psychology by James Mark Baldwin( Book )

56 editions published between 1897 and 2012 in English and held by 732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a continuation of the studies in genetic psychology begun in my Mental Development in the Child and the Race. As was announced in the earlier work, I had intended to publish the volume of 'Interpretations' under the same general heading of 'Mental Development' and to include in it certain educational 'Interpretations' also. It seems best, however, for the sake of unity of treatment in this volume, --and also on account of its size, --to omit the educational matter for the present, and also to make this volume quite independent of the former work, except in so far as the natural connection requires somewhat frequent reference to it. This departure from my original plan also enables me to include in Part II certain chapters which were written with reference to the question set by the Royal Academy of Denmark ("Is it possible to establish, for the individual isolated in society, rules of conduct drawn entirely from his personal nature; and if such rules are possible, what is their relation to the rules which would be reached from the consideration of society as a whole?"). I have also endeavoured, in view of the lack in English of a book on Social Psychology which can be used in the universities in connection with courses in psychology, ethics, and social science, to make my essay available for such a purpose. This has led to such expansions--some may call them repetitions--of the fundamental ideas of the work as seemed necessary to a fairly complete working-out of the social element in connection with each of the greater psychological functions. Part I is thus made, as far as its topics are concerned, a more or less complete study of social and ethical psychology"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
Handbook of psychology by James Mark Baldwin( Book )

47 editions published between 1889 and 2010 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The justification of another handbook of Psychology is readily found in the present state of the science, a state of such enthusiastic and productive specialism that it is to be hoped no book will hereafter meet the requirements of higher education for more than a generation. The question of the relation of psychology to metaphysics, over which a fierce warfare has been waged in recent years, is now fairly settled by the adjustment of mutual claims. It is in the interests of this adjustment, which I believe to be part of the true philosophy of science in general, that this book is written. While giving more than usual attention to the rich and popularly little known results of the new methods--in psychometry, psychophysics, and neurology--I endeavor, wherever hypotheses of their ground and bearing upon the mental life have been advanced, to suggest and estimate them. Inasmuch, however, as the rational treatment of the data of the science constitutes a special department of metaphysics, empirical psychology must be concerned chiefly with the first of these tasks, and with the latter only as far as rational inferences can be confirmed empirically in the stage of development reached. Thus with the establishment of hypotheses, the science of fact will become broader and more profound and the reasoned conclusions of metaphysics will become the conclusions also of a sound and thoroughgoing induction. By throwing the more difficult and abstract points of discussion into smaller print in the text, I have endeavored to draw a line of demarcation for a more general or a more detailed course of instruction, as the earlier preparation of the student may make advisable. The "Further Problems for Study, " at the end of each chapter, are intended to indicate partially unexplored fields in which students may engage themselves in an original way"--Preface.

The story of the mind by James Mark Baldwin( )

61 editions published between 1898 and 2015 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychology is the science of the mind. It aims to find out all about the mind--the whole story. As to the scope and contents of the Story, I have aimed to include enough statement of methods and results in each of the great departments of psychological research to give the reader an intelligent idea of what is being done, and to whet his appetite for more detailed information. In the choice of materials I have relied frankly on my own experience and in debatable matters given my own opinions. This gives greater reality to the several topics, besides making it possible, by this general statement, at once to acknowledge it, and also to avoid discussion and citation of authorities in the text. At the same time, in the exposition of general principles I have endeavoured to keep well within the accepted truth and terminology of psychology. It will be remarked that in several passages the evolution theory is adopted in its application to the mind. I add in a concluding section on Literature some references to various books in English, classified under the headings of the chapters of the text."

Development and evolution, including psychophysical evolution, evolution by orthoplasy, and the theory of genetic modes by James Mark Baldwin( Book )

37 editions published between 1902 and 2016 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume takes up some of the biological problems most closely connected with psychological ones and falling under the general scope of the genetic method. General biology is today mainly theory of evolution, and its handmaid is theory of individual development. This book provides an exposition of psychophysical evolution, evolution by orthoplasy, and the theory of genetic modes"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

The play of animals by K Groos( Book )

13 editions published between 1898 and 2011 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume Professor Groos makes a contribution to three distinct but cognate departments of inquiry: philosophical biology, animal psychology, and the genetic study of art. The world of play, to which art belongs, stands in most important and interesting contrast with the stern realities of life; yet there are few scientific works in the field of human play, and none at all in that of animal play--a fact to be accounted for, probably, by the inherent difficulties of the subject, both objective and subjective. The animal psychologist must harbour in his breast not only two souls, but more; he must unite with a thorough training in physiology, psychology, and biology the experience of a traveller, the practical knowledge of the director of a zoological garden, and the outdoor lore of a forester. And even then he could not round up his labours satisfactorily unless he were familiar with the trend of modern aesthetics. Groos holds play to be an instinct developed by natural selection, and to be on a level with the other instincts which are developed for their utility. Its utility is, in the main, twofold: First, it enables the young animal to exercise himself beforehand in the strenuous and necessary functions of its life and so to be ready for their onset; and, second, it enables the animal by a general instinct to do many things in a playful way, and so to learn for itself much that would otherwise have to be inherited in the form of special instincts; this puts a premium on intelligence, which thus comes to replace instinct"--Preface.

History of psychology; a sketch and an interpretation by James Mark Baldwin( )

28 editions published between 1913 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The point of view adopted in this book is that of a parallelism between racial reflection and individual thought, which leads to an account of the history of psychology considered as the rise and interpretation of the mind-term in the dualism of mind and body.

Elements of psychology by James Mark Baldwin( Book )

19 editions published between 1893 and 2011 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been prepared in response to a request from a number of teachers of psychology in the universities who suggested that the expense and length of my Handbook of Psychology precluded its use as the text in their courses of instruction. I have, accordingly, aimed to make a book which shall present the newest essentials of the science in a single compact volume at reasonable cost. It differs from my larger work mainly in its omissions. I have endeavored, however, to simplify the exposition, throughout, often rewriting whole sections or recasting whole chapters with this in view, and adding more illustrative facts and explanations. The treatment of the nervous system has been put at the beginning--a pedagogical concession to my critics, to which I ask attention as unanimous as their criticism. In regard to other alterations--respecting which the critics' opinions have largely neutralized one another--I have depended as before mainly on my own judgment. What these alterations are the book is here to show. I am sorry that the doctrine of "Feeling" his not aroused the approval in its readers that the doctrine of "Belief" has. It is stated more clearly in this book; but it is the same doctrine, and--may everybody be converted! Finally, I have added before the first chapter a short glossary of terms likely to embarrass the student at the beginning of his study; and instead of burdening the pages with references to the authorities, I have given at the outset once for all the general works (English mainly) in which detailed and exhaustive expositions may be found. A reference to the corresponding fuller treatment of my own larger work is given at the beginning of each chapter. I may add that I am grateful to all who have done my work the honor of reviewing, teaching, or reading it; especially to the reviewers. One who is conscious of his own sins feels the more the humanity of the physician who forbears to probe them too deeply"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Handbook of Psychology : Feeling and Will by James Mark Baldwin( )

23 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume completes the survey of the mind begun in my "Handbook of Psychology: Senses and Intellect". In method and scope my plan has remained the same. The treatment of this volume, however, is somewhat fuller: since I have wished to remove, in some degree, the reproach so often and so justly cast upon the general works in Psychology that they give Feeling and Will summary and inadequate discussion. This volume, it may be said, however, puts to a better test the claim upon which the Handbook is written, i.e., the possibility of a psychology which is not a metaphysics, nor even a philosophy. For the phenomena of the emotional and volitional life have not been worked over for purposes of philosophical system, as intellectual phenomena have: and for this reason, the psychologist has in this field greater freedom of treatment and a larger scientific opportunity. Hence--while not laying a claim to originality, which only the opinion of competent readers could make of any force--I feel that, apart from the general arrangement and division, certain chapters of this volume are more independent. In other words, the book not only aims to be useful for purposes of university instruction, but it may also be found, on some points, to make contributions to psychological discussion. The topics to which I refer especially are: "Interest, Reality, and Belief" (Chap. VII), "Pleasure and Pain" (Chaps. V and XI), "Conceptual Feeling" (Chap. IX), "Suggestion as Motor Stimulus" (Chap. XIII), and the theory of "Volition" (Chaps. XV and XVI). A point of distinctive treatment under the head of Will is the emphasis laid upon the analysis of the "Reactive Consciousness" considered as basis of Volition"--Preface.

Alterations of personality ; On double consciousness by Alfred Binet( Book )

9 editions published between 1896 and 2015 in English and held by 224 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)
Fragments in philosophy and science by James Mark BALDWIN( )

11 editions published between 1903 and 2012 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume is made up of papers selected from a larger number scattered during fifteen years in various journals. The philosophical presupposition of a view which joins the words "Philosophy" and "Science" is, to my thinking, at once an Idealism and also a Naturalism. No philosophy can today deny Naturalism; by Naturalism meaning the recognition of the right of Dame Nature--physical, vital, mental--to be and to do what she really is and does with no let nor hindrance whatever, from us or from all the tribe of thought. If we allow science at all--knowledge of Nature, at all--then the ideal of science and of scientific explanation is once for all erected. Naturalism, which, in my usage of the term, is a name for science not for philosophy, must sweep the boards of every fact that "is, was, or ever shall be," of every fact of every kind, before its task is done, leaving not a pawn on any square of the board we call the cosmos. Philosophy is a new reading of Science, a saying of this or that about knowledge--not a special species of knowledge, nor a discovery of what is new. Philosophy evaluates, estimates, criticises, unifies, enjoys. Philosophy says "How?"--to Science's "What?" How can this and that both be true? How can the universe hold both man and nature? Both fact and ideal? Both "is" and "ought"? How can action be immoral and thinking false? In short: How can and how must we men think Nature and act naturally? Nature being what and only what science makes her out to be. Such be one's presuppositions, then it follows that one's philosophy is simply one's thought--one's best thought--about Nature. My best thought of nature, my type of philosophy, is an Idealism which finds that the universe of science, is, when all is said, a cosmos which is not only true but also beautiful, and in some sense good. Science tells us what is true; that is science's prerogative: and whatever maybe science's final word about Nature, that word is in so far the truth of the matter. Philosophy then enters her questions: How can such truth be also good, beautiful, livable--or none of these? While others say other things, and many others many other things, I say it is true and good because it is beautiful. Nothing, I think, can be true without being beautiful, and nothing can be, in any high sense, good without being beautiful. The ascription of beauty, a reasoned, criticised, thought-out ascription of aesthetic quality, is the final form of our thought about nature, man, the world, the All"--Book.
