Elements of physiological psychology; a treatise of the activities and nature of the mind, from the physical and experimental points of view by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

98 editions published between 1887 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There can be no doubt that an important movement in psychology has arisen in recent times through the effort to approach the phenomena of mind from the experimental and physiological point of view. As a result of some years of study of the general subject, I express with considerable confidence the opinion that there is no ground for extravagant claims or expectations, and still less ground for any fear of consequences. In all cases of new and somewhat rankly growing scientific enterprises, it is much the better way to waive the discussion of actual or possible achievements, as well as of welcomed or dreaded revelations of new truth, and proceed at once to the business on hand. It is proposed in this book to follow this better way. It will be the task of the book itself to set forth the assured or alleged results of Physiological Psychology; and this will be done at every step with such degree of assurance as belongs to the evidence hitherto attainable upon the particular subject discussed. With declamation, either in attack or defense of the "old psychology," of the "introspective method," etc., one may dispense without serious loss. The method and arrangement of the book have been chosen so as to fit it for use, both as a text-book by special students of the subjects of which it treats, and also by the general reader who is interested in knowing what results have been reached by the more modern--and even the latest--psycho-physical researches"-- (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
Philosophy of mind; an essay in the metaphysics of psychology by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

37 editions published between 1895 and 2012 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an essay in the speculative treatment of certain problems, suggested but not usually discussed in the course of a thorough empirical study of mental phenomena. Inasmuch as these problems all relate to the real nature and actual performances and relations of the human mind, the essay may properly be called metaphysical. Let it be confessed, then, that the author comes forward with a treatise in metaphysics--in the more special meaning of that term. I think, however, that in spite of the marked disfavor into which all metaphysics has fallen in certain quarters, no detailed apology for asking readers for such a treatise need be offered in its Preface. Indeed, the first two chapters of the book are occupied in showing how inevitable is the demand which the science of psychology makes for a further philosophical discussion of all its principal problems. The nature of psychology, however, and the nature of philosophy, and especially the nature of the relations existing between the two, are such as to make it undesirable, if not impossible, to consider in one book all the metaphysical problems which this empirical science suggests. Indeed, the whole sphere of philosophical study scarcely does more than this. A somewhat but not wholly arbitrary selection of problems had, therefore, to be made; and their detailed discussion was then brought under the one title, "Philosophy of Mind." The reasons for the selection are made sufficiently clear in the course of the discussion itself"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
Psychology, descriptive and explanatory; a treatise of the phenomena, laws, and development of human mental life by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

37 editions published between 1894 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book designs to give a clear, accurate, and comprehensive picture of the mental life of the individual man; and also to explain this life as it appears in the light of all the resources of modern psychological science, and with the idea of "development" as essentially characteristic of this, as it is of all life, constantly kept in mind. While gratefully acknowledging my indebtedness to each of the large band of predecessors in this our common work--as well to those I have named as to the many more unnamed--I can truthfully acknowledge no special obligations to any individuals among this number. It will not require a wide acquaintance with psychological literature for the reader to discover that the points of view, the order of treatment, the discussion of the particular topics, are all independent and thoroughly the author's own. Indeed, it is my belief that there is not a page, and scarcely a line, of this treatise which does not show that all its material has been wrought anew into a distinct and characteristic organism of truth. Attention is particularly called, however, to the divisions of the book, which abandon even the appearance of retaining the old and vicious theory of faculties; to the consistent tenure of the view that the formation and development of faculty is itself the chief thing which scientific psychology has to explain; to the treatment, in particular, of the affective phenomena--the nature, classes, and tone as pleasure-pain, of the feelings, and the growth of the emotions and sentiments; to the theory of perception and of the nature and growth of knowledge which is advocated; to the discussions where psychology comes into critical contact with logic; and, above all, to the view taken of the moral sentiments and of the nature and evolution of will"--Preface.

Outlines of the philosophy of religion; dictated portions of the lectures of Hermann Lotze by Hermann Lotze( Book )

Introduction to philosophy: an inquiry after a rational system of scientific principles in their relation to ultimate reality by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

29 editions published between 1890 and 1903 in 3 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though this book is called an "Introduction," no special pains have been taken to simplify or popularize its treatment. For those accustomed to think in the lines it follows, its views will, I hope, always be found clearly and candidly expressed. It is not to be expected that these views will all find acceptance with those most competent to judge. For beginners in philosophy some expressions will doubtless seem obscure, or hard to be understood. But, then, reflection is the indispensable method of philosophy; and he who does not learn to reflect over the meanings which the words employed in philosophical writings bear, cannot hope to make progress in philosophical study. For if, when entering upon this study, the plain and thoughtful man needs no special equipment besides his own powers of reflection, the keenest and most showily educated mind cannot dispense with reflection. Finally, the expert readers--if such the book should find--will not be long in discovering that the so-called "Introduction" is by no means a perfectly colorless affair. Doubtless a system of philosophy (or at least the sketch and protocol of such a system) lies concealed in these pages. If the subject were urged to the point of a confession, it would appear that the author has views of his own to which he wishes to introduce his readers. These views are to a certain large extent positive as well as critical. The attempt has been made, however, to prevent their expression in a form unreasonably and offensively dogmatic. Whether they are sound and defensible, each reader must, on due consideration, judge for himself. But a "system of philosophy" has only been suggested and sketched. The expansion and more detailed discussion of its separate departments by the same hand must abide their time"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

Philosophy of knowledge : an inquiry into the nature, limits, and validity of human cognitive faculty by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

27 editions published between 1897 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an essay in the interests of some of the most profound and difficult of the problems which can engage the reflective thinking of man. It would scarcely be an exaggeration to say that the nature, limits, and guaranty of knowledge afford subjects of inquiry which exceed all others in the demand they make for deep and earnest reflection. If one were at liberty to construct a theory of reality which should be simply a logically consistent and symmetrical affair, satisfactory to the ideals of the architect but without regard to foundations of fact or questions of the right to occupy the ground in this way, the task would seem comparatively light. But in this day, and in the face of history, such a liberty cannot be intelligently claimed; much less can it be successfully exercised. Facts must be considered, and questions of right cannot be thrust aside or overlooked. For the former part of one's philosophical basis, the particular sciences are now responsible; for the latter part--the search after guide and guaranty--a particular form of philosophical discipline, sometimes called epistemology, is invoked. It is this form of philosophy which this book undertakes"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Philosophy of conduct; a treatise of the facts, principles, and ideals of ethics by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

25 editions published between 1902 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The number of voluminous works dealing with man's moral life and moral development which have recently appeared has been by no means inconsiderable. Among these some have been especially noteworthy, both for the array of phenomena which they have marshalled, and also for the scientific spirit and method which have characterized their treatment of these phenomena. It is difficult to say how much this fact discloses as to the revival of a more profound and vital interest in the study of morality--properly so-called. Doubtless the history of the evolution of the race on the side of manners and morals arouses in many minds only the same kind of curiosity as that to which the sciences of biology and anthropology are so vigorously ministering, all over the scientific world, at the present time. But such interest is by no means necessarily the equivalent of that which is demanded by the kind of inquiry upon which I have entered in this volume. For this inquiry proposes at least to raise, even if it cannot completely answer, the more ultimate problems of conduct as our experience forces them upon the reflective thinking of mankind. I have, therefore, called this treatise of human moral life and moral development a "Philosophy of Conduct." In Part First, the nature of the Moral Self, or of man as equipped for the life of conduct, has been described as this nature appears in the light of psychological science, both individual and ethnic. In Part Second, which treats of the Virtuous Life, it has been my aim to show how, in spite of the bewildering variety of opinions and practices which has always existed, there is still, and, so far as can be discovered, always has been, a very substantial agreement touching the characteristic traits and habitual practices of the "good man." And, finally, in Part Third I have discussed the Nature of the Right. It is, of course, this Part in which the method of philosophy is most prominently and unmistakably employed"--Preface.

Outlines of physiological psychology : a text-book of mental science for academies and colleges by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

59 editions published between 1890 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The volume is not an abridgment or revision of the larger book Elements of physiological psychology, which is still to be preferred for mature students, but, like it, surveys the entire field, though with less details and references that might embarrass beginners. Briefer discussions of the nervous mechanism, and of the nature of the mind as related to the body will be found in the "Outlines"; while the treatment of relations existing between excited organs and mental phenomena offers much new material, especially on "Consciousness," "Memory," and "Will." The author aims to furnish a complete yet correct text-book for the brief study of mental phenomena, from the experimental and physiological point of view. Both pupil and teacher have been considered, that the book may be readily learned and successfully taught. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Outlines of descriptive psychology; a text-book of mental science for colleges and normal schools by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

26 editions published between 1898 and 1911 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been written with a definite intention constantly in view. In size, selection and arrangement of material, style, and mechanical structure, my effort has been to adapt it to certain beginners, with an average grade of culture and amount of time at disposal. In a word, it is--as its title designates--a text-book of the science of psychology for colleges and normal schools. I have, therefore, had in mind, from first sentence to last, both the pupil and the teacher in their mutual relations. No pains has been spared to make the presentation of the subject such that it can be intelligently and "economically" yet thoroughly studied and successfully taught. It will doubtless facilitate my general purpose if the explanation of it is extended into a few particulars. And first, attention is called to the fact that this work aims to give a complete but summary treatment of the phenomena of human mental life, from the different points of view, and with all the methods of research, which belong to modern psychology"--Préf.

Primer of psychology by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

33 editions published between 1894 and 2012 in English and Russian and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a word, this book simply aims to narrate some of the more obvious facts and principles known to modern scientific psychology in plain and familiar English, and in an orderly but wholly untechnical way. Anything like completeness, whether as respects the topics touched upon or the treatment given to any one of these topics, must not be expected"--Preface.

A theory of reality; an essay in metaphysical system upon the basis of human cognitive experience by George Trumbull Ladd( Book )

17 editions published between 1899 and 2012 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The prefatory explanations which I wish to make with respect to the aims and the conclusions of this book are so few and obvious that they may be very briefly dispatched. The problem which it attempts, and the method which it employs, are stated at some length in the first chapter. Its main conclusions--the "Theory of Reality " it advocates--are reiterated and enforced in connection with the critical discussion of each topic; they are given synthetic treatment and summarized in the concluding portions of the book. The faithfulness of its appeal to recognized facts and to the positive sciences has been emphasized by the frequency with which the conceptions and phrases defining mans "cognitive experience" are employed. The doctrine of knowledge, which was elaborated in the earlier book, is assumed and trusted throughout in the discussions of this book. And, on the other hand, the theory of reality which was discovered in germinal form by the earlier book is the conclusion elaborated into a system of metaphysics by the studies which this book contains"--Preface.
