"This Manual comprises a series of experiments that can be performed by untrained students of psychology without supplementary explanation on the part of the teacher and without costly and complicated apparatus. The selection of the experiments was made chiefly with reference to their relative simplicity and ease of execution by classes of beginners in the study of psychology, but in part also with reference to their importance as illustrations of the phenomena and processes of mental life. The experiments thus selected have been arranged in the order best suited logically to present a consistent outline of psychology and best adapted pedagogically to develop such an outline in the minds of students first approaching the study of mental phenomena from the viewpoint of the psychologist. Where compromise seemed necessary, pedagogical motives have generally outweighed purely scientific considerations. The scope of the Manual has been purposely restricted to the analysis of the component processes of mental phenomena. The course of the analysis successively presents the essential features of apperception, perception, attention, the range and limits of consciousness, the association of mental contents and of physiological and physical processes, the relation of mental contents to these processes, and the sensation as the mental element. Problems peculiarly connected with the processes of mental synthesis and with physiological psychology have consequently been denied special consideration, although they are frequently mentioned where necessary for the explanation of the subject-matter germane to the scope of the book. The experiments are not intended primarily to constitute a manual of experimental psychology. Their purpose is to illustrate the facts and principles of psychology by leading the student, whether a beginner or an advanced student, to discover for himself the psychological facts upon which are based the principles of the science"--Preface.

Clinical psychology; studies in honor of Lightner Witmer to commemorate the thirty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the first psychological clinic by Robert Archibald Brotemarkle( Book )

3 editions published in 1931 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the expression of the personal affection and scientific appreciation of Lightner Witmer. Written by a group of his former students, colleagues, and friends, it gives voice to the gratitude of all whom he has served in the founding and motivating of Clinical Psychology. Not the least of these are the many men, women, and children who have been aided in the development and adjustment of individual personality by the humanitarian efforts of this new branch of the modern science of Psychology. The papers written by invitation of the editor are the product of twenty-five of the former students of Lightner Witmer in the Department of Psychology and the Psychological Clinic. The authors, each of whom holds some position of responsibility, are recognized workers and authorities in the fields in which they have contributed. They are but representative of the many members of the new profession who owe their original instruction and inspiration to Witmer. In each and every field of activity to which any and all of the writers have applied the foundations of clinical psychology their success testifies to the original direction of Witmer's concepts, the great freedom of effort allowed them in research, continued advice and encouragement, with not infrequent contributions of new and leading ideas"--Introduction.
