Instinct and reason : an essay concerning the relation of instinct to reason, with some special study of the nature of religion by Henry Rutgers Marshall( Book )

1 edition published in 1898 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The writing of this book was first undertaken because I wished to present the conception of Religion. In attempting to make my argument convincing I have found it necessary to deal with questions which did not at first appear to relate to the subject I wished to discuss, and the study of Religion thus appears as a subsidiary part of the broader treatment of Instinct and Reason; the reader will readily perceive, however, that it still remains the most important and most interesting matter considered. It has long seemed to me evident that activities which are so universal in man as are those which express our religious life, cannot fail to be of significance in relation to our biological development, especially as these activities have persisted for so many ages in the human race. I have, therefore, attempted to outline a theory which will account for the existence of religious activities, and which will explain their biological import. In order to present this clearly I have thought it best to make a special study of Instinct, to which the second division of the book is devoted, to show the relation of religious activities to instinctive activities in general. This study of Instinct naturally leads to the study of Impulse in division III, and this turns our thought to a consideration of the nature of moral standards which we all acknowledge to be most closely related to religious activities. In like manner the study of Reason, while natural in connection with the study of Instinct, has also its appropriateness in connection with the consideration of the nature of Religion"--Preface.

The psychic factors of civilization by Lester F Ward( Book )

1 edition published in 1893 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of the present work is to determine the precise role that mind plays in social phenomena. In the preface to the former volume I enumerated five of the comprehensive principles embodied in it to which attention had not previously been specially directed. Three of these related to the domain of mind. As I am still, so far as I am aware, alone in insisting upon the reality and importance of these principles, I will repeat them here: (1) The theory of the Social Forces, and the fundamental antithesis which they imply between Feeling and Function; (2) The contrast between these true Social Forces and the guiding influence of the Intellect, embodying the application of the Indirect Method of Conation and the essential nature of Invention, of Art, and of Dynamic Action and (3) The superiority of Artificial, or Teleological, Processes over Natural, or Genetic, Processes"--Preface.

The elements of psychology by Edward L Thorndike( Book )

1 edition published in 1905 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those facts which can most profitably be made the subject matter of a course in general psychology are presented with an abundance of concrete illustrations, experiments, exercises and questions, by which the student may secure real rather than verbal conceptions and may test, apply and make permanent his knowledge"--Pref.

The mind of man; a text-book of psychology by Gustav Spiller( Book )

1 edition published in 1902 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What more interesting study can there be than that of the Mind of Man? To observe the mind at work--thinking, or imagining, or feeling, or dreaming--must assuredly rival what is given by geology or by astronomy. The scientific study of mind, however, is not only interesting; it has far-reaching consequences. The principles of education and those of morals and aesthetics are closely bound up with it, while even such sciences as political economy and sociology are likely to be transformed through its influence. Furthermore, a science of mind must revolutionise the whole of philosophy. By determining the nature of mental process and the nature of mind, it will set at rest once for all those discussions which have raged around a unitary conception of the universe. Physical science and mental science will then no more form two independent and hostile camps, and speculative metaphysics will cease to exist, handing over its many interesting problems to science. If psychology cannot as yet boast of any great truths, that is because Introspection has been unjustifiably regarded as impossible or impracticable. Yet, as we shall see, this mode of investigation offers no great difficulties and may be applied with marked advantage. The chapters which follow represent an attempt to apply the scientific method in Psychology. The volume consists of three parts : Method, General Analyses, and Special Syntheses. Its most pervading feature is perhaps the organic conception of the life of thought and action which the inquiry has forced to the foreground"--Preface.

Evolutional ethics and animal psychology by E. P Evans( Book )

Memory : what it is and how to improve it by David Kay( Book )

1 edition published in 1888 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is no topic in educational psychology more important than that of memory and its cultivation. Memory is indispensable in all intellectual processes, and therefore must be trained and developed. Physiology shows the close and intimate connection that subsists between mind and body. From it we learn that every thought that passes through the mind, every sensation we experience, every act we do, produces some definite change in our bodily structure, so that there is reason to believe that there is a particular state of the body corresponding to every state or act of the mind. This change is permanent, and constitutes in the author's view the physical basis of memory, the type of which may be seen in the scar of a cut finger which remains long after the wound itself is healed, and never wholly disappears. It is impossible to over-estimate the importance of this subject as bearing upon education. The whole science of education may be said to be embraced in the question of "How to improve the memory?" It includes not merely the cultivation of the different mental faculties and furnishing them with knowledge, but the training of the senses, and the developing of the various physical powers. It has been the author's endeavour throughout the volume to bring out the practical bearings of his views upon education"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
The human mind : a treatise in mental philosophy by Edward John Hamilton( Book )

1 edition published in 1883 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The treatise now offered to the public, though the outgrowth of studies which the author has long pursued with pleasure, immediately originated from aims which have been entertained during the last ten or twelve years. First of all it has been his effort to compose a metaphysical system satisfactory to himself. Discontent with the various published theories of belief and conviction forced him to form new views on these fundamental topics; and, from this beginning, he was led on to attempt a general reconstruction of the philosophy of mind. While deeply conscious of imperfection both in the design and in the execution of this undertaking, he yet is confident that the leading doctrines advocated have been framed correctly, and cannot be set aside by future investigations. Along with the desire of producing a satisfactory philosophy, the ambition arose to write a scientific book, such as every American gentleman should have for reading and for reference. During the composition of this treatise, the author has had in view those thousands of our people, whose education has interested them, more or less, in metaphysical studies. He felt assured that this considerable body of his fellow-citizens would welcome a volume in which the principal names and terms, questions and controversies, of mental philosophy might be compendiously presented and discussed. He sincerely hopes that the system expounded in the following pages may secure the attention and approbation of learned professors, but the treatise has not been specially prepared for them. Finally, the adaptation of the work for use in our higher educational institutions, has been a constant aim with the author. In furtherance of this end, he has distinguished separate dissertations by the numbering of sections, has indicated specific topics by side-headings, and has employed many logical divisions and definitions. The advocacy of new opinions renders the book larger than would be needful, if it were merely the digest of a finished science; yet the study of the whole volume is recommended in all cases in which this may be found practicable. At the same time, certain discussions, concerning matters which are not essential to a fair knowledge of psychology, and which are not commonly considered in text-books, may properly be passed over by those who do not wish to make a specialty of metaphysics"--Preface.

On the senses, instincts, and intelligence of animals, with special reference to insects by John Lubbock( Book )

1 edition published in 1888 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the present volume I have collected together some of my recent observations on the senses and intelligence of animals, and especially of insects. While attempting to understand the manners and customs, habits and behaviour, of animals, as well as for the purpose of devising test experiments, I have found it necessary to make myself acquainted as far as possible with the mechanism of the senses, and the organs by means of which sensations are transmitted. I have accordingly attempted to give, very briefly, some idea of the organs of sense, commencing in each case with those of man himself"--Preface.
