Emotional hazards in animals and man by H. S Liddell( )

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Spring of 1954, I was invited by Professor Robert Jones, Head of the Department of Psychiatry, Dalhousie University, to deliver six lectures at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Halifax to the psychiatric residents of the Maritime Provinces about the emotional hazards in animal and man. The six brief lectures which follow are based upon the material there presented. The invaluable discussions occasioned by my remarks at that time have led to new insights into the significance of investigations, such as Gantt's and my own, for experimental medicine and clinical psychiatry"--Preface.

Brief Outline of an Analysis of the Human Intellect, etc by James Rush( )

1 edition published in 1865 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is always interesting, and frequently useful, in the history of the human intellect, to learn the progress of an invention or discovery, from its origin to its apparent termination. Foremost of the early Profound thinkers as they are called, is the Metaphysician, who groping too deeply among the 'occult causes' and effects of Spirit in the human mind, has been unwilling or unable to retrace, and point-out the confused, and staggering steps, by which he seemed to come at the supposed truths of his fictional system. Mental metaphysicians, though never giving the world a clear, and practical system of the full Art of Thinking, and only differing from one another upon it, have neglected to tell us the manner of beginning and conducting, even their own unsatisfactory efforts; thereby preventing our receiving from this source, the least light, on the causes of their failure. The following method of investigating the mind, from the beginning to the end of its few and simple functions, is conducted on the ground of there being altogether a physical action of the senses and the brain. And however it may appear to others, the Author considers, and will endeavor to show, that the gradual manner in which the mind proceeds with its inquiry into itself, is, so to speak, a gradual application of its physical Working Plan to explain its own physical phenomena. Having preserved the first writing of the suggestions, sketches, observations, hints, doubts, and searching inquiries, as they were originally recorded; and having extended and framed these views to a consistent system, in the following Natural History of the Mind the Author thought, a few Readers might find it interesting, if not useful, to know by what gradual means a new analysis, arrangement, and nomenclature of its phenomena have been gathered from the first and uncertain gropings after order and truth; designing to show how others with more comprehensive views, and with greater penetration, may do better things, by improving on what may here have been done. The old or metaphysical account of the mind being both limited and confused, has only furnished the means for continued disputes; leaving every individual to value his mind, according to his own conceit which merely perpetuates the jealousy and ill-will of a vain and insolent pride. The Author proposes, by his physical description, arrangement, and nomenclature, to enable the individual, without vanity or pride, truly to know his own mind, by the analytic rule of its construction, and working plan; and to apply that universal rule to discriminate the minds of others"--Preface.

Why the mind has a body by Charles Augustus Strong( )

1 edition published in 1903 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"(From the preface) The reader will find in this book (1) a sketch of an explanation of the connection of mind and body; (2) a proposal, based thereon, for a settlement of the controversy between the parallelists and the interactionists. (1) The explanation of the connection of mind and body is not in substance new. It is that which is implied in the panpsychism of Fechner and Clifford. Brief expositions of it have been given by Paulsen in his Einleitung in die Philosophie--indeed, to Paulsen I owe my first acquaintance with it--and, more recently, by Stout in the chapter "Body and Mind" of his manual. What specially characterizes my treatment of the matter is the detailed working-out of the conception in terms of the hypothesis of mental causality. I have also set forth somewhat elaborately the scientific and metaphysical premises on which it rests. (2) A further merit of the explanation is that it enables us to settle the controversy between the interactionists and the parallelists in a way satisfactory to both parties. Parallelism is commonly supposed to deny the efficiency of mind; and this is felt to be the great objection to it. The proposition that, so far from denying efficiency, parallelism involves and implies it, may even seem to the reader a contradiction in terms. Yet this is a proposition which the panpsychist theory permits us to justify. In his article "Are we automata?" in Mind for 1879 (vol. iv., pp. 1-22), Professor James made the prediction that, if the 'automaton theory' should ever prove to be the truth, it would be in a translated form in which our common-sense belief in the efficiency of mind would be recognized as essentially accurate. In Dr. Stout's theory and mine this prophecy finds its fulfillment."--(PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
Social change and scientific progress by William Claire Menninger( )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As we meet tonight, our civilization is in imminent danger. The world is precariously teetering on the edge of disaster. One relatively minor "incident" could initiate a holocaust that would destroy all of us. The disconcerting fact is that it is a world of our own making. The atomic age, symbolized by the power of the atom, is equally symbolic of the near-transparent hostile aggressiveness of man towards man. On all sides we are made aware, even in our daily lives, of man's feelings of insecurity, suspicion, resentment, prejudice, hate. Two taxi drivers at a metropolitan intersection, two Congressmen of opposing political parties, or two world ideologies that are in complete conflict with each other, give abundant evidence of our inability to get along with our fellowmen. If, as many of us believe, we are at an extremely critical point in our world history, it is imperative that we consider and reconsider the relationship of social change to scientific progress. My remarks will deal more specifically with how some aspects of technological advance have seemed to affect the mental health of society. In considering how science and the industrial revolution have affected the mental health of society, one is faced with the need to look for answers to some all-important basic questions. Are people today any more or any less happy than they were in more rigorous and primitive cultures or in other civilizations? Has our progress in the field of pragmatic materialism blighted or minimized our aesthetic and spiritual values? Have scientific, technical, and industrial developments which have so greatly increased our material comforts robbed many people of deep-seated satisfactions without offering suitable substitutions? Have those great technological advances that make it possible for us to defend ourselves against an enemy stimulated man's instinctive, hostile aggressiveness beyond his capacity to handle it? Is the resistance to change in human nature so great that anxiety has been aroused by the speed of our technological advance? Many other similar questions could be asked. In the absence of "scientifically validated" evidence, any answers could be fairly classified as merely an impression or an opinion. Such questions as these are raised because they are in the minds of all of us but as yet no group of scientists has come up with an adequate answer. It is presumed that the answers will most likely come from the group of social sciences--cultural anthropology, sociology, economics, social psychology, and political science. They may be expected to rely heavily on contributions from philosophy, ethics, religion, and statistics. As yet, however, because of the youth of these sciences, they have had little time to develop and apply scientific methods of study comparable to the progress made in the natural sciences. Furthermore, we have no right to expect the social sciences to have made much greater gain than they have with the meager financial support that they have received"--(PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
Color and its applications by Matthew Luckiesh( )

1 edition published in 1915 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this book is to present a condensed treatment of the science of color. An attempt has been made to cover as many phases of the subject as possible within the confines of a small volume. During several years of experimental work in the science of color I have been brought into contact with many persons interested in its applications, and the desire has been frequently expressed for a book that treated the science of color as far as possible from the viewpoint of those interested in the many applications of color. These applications are constantly increasing in scope and interest. With this viewpoint in mind I have attempted to treat the subject, exercising my judgment in drawing freely from the work of other investigators in order to make the volume as comprehensive as possible. I do not feel that the work comprises a complete treatment, for there are many interesting phases of color science that have been barely touched upon, and some that have been purposely omitted, because of the danger of straying too far afield. It is believed, however, that this treatise will be helpful to those interested in any of the arts involving the science of color. I have referred to my own investigations quite freely, but trust that this will not be attributed to a lack of perspective. Naturally much of the text involves my own conclusions, but I have aimed to include only those that are supported by experimental data, because only in so far as they are thus supported does the work become authoritative"--Preface.

A philosophical and practical treatise on the will. Forming the third volume of a system of mental philosophy by Thomas C Upham( )

1 edition published in 1849 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In offering to the public the following Treatise on the Will, I am obliged to presume, in no small degree, on its forbearance and candour. It is a subject which, in some of its applications, has been so long connected with Theological controversies, that it is almost impossible to write upon it without exciting the suspicion that the discussion will assume a party character. I hope the reader will do me the justice, in the outset, to believe that my object is not a party one, and that the ascertainment of truth is my only aim. If he will take the trouble carefully to read the Treatise through, as I hope he will before promoting an opinion upon it, I anticipate the pleasure of standing fair in his estimation, as a candid inquirer after the truth, whether I have been successful in my efforts or not"--Preface.

A treatise on mental diseases : based upon the lecture course at the Johns Hopkins University, 1899, and designed for the use of practitioners and students of medicine by Henry J Berkley( )

1 edition published in 1900 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The absence from English medical literature of a comprehensive, practical work on mental diseases--one adapted to the needs of the busy practitioner as well as to those of the student of psychiatry--has led the writer to prepare this treatise embodying a consideration of all the principal forms of psychical disturbance. Although it is evident, from the intrinsic nature of the subject, that such an attempt can be only partially successful, it is to be hoped that the book will add something to the certain knowledge of the practitioner, and render more accessible what has been heretofore almost an unknown territory of medicine"--Preface.

A preliminary discourse on the study of natural philosophy. A facsim. of the 1830 ed by John F. W Herschel( )

1 edition published in 1831 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before all other things, man is distinguished by his pursuit and investigation of truth. And hence, when free from needful business and cares, we delight to see, to hear, and to communicate, and consider a knowledge of many admirable and abstruse things necessary to the good conduct and happiness of our lives: whence it is clear that whatsoever is trite, simple, and direct, the same is moat congenial to out nature as men. Closely allied with this earnest longing to see and know the troth, is a kind of dignified and princely sentiment which forbids a mind, naturally well constituted, to submit its faculties to any but those who announce it in precept or in doctrine, or to yield obedience to any orders but such as are at once just, lawful, and founded on utility. From this source spring greatness of mind and contempt of worldly advantages and troubles"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
Psychology, general introduction by Charles Hubbard Judd( )

1 edition published in 1917 in Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book aims to develop a functional view of mental life. Indeed, I am quite unable to accept the contentions, or sympathize with the views of the defenders of a structural or purely analytical psychology. In the second place, I have aimed to adopt the genetic method of treatment. It may be well to remark that the term genetic is used here in its broad sense to cover all that relates to general evolution or individual development. In the third place, I have attempted to give to the physiological conditions of mental life a more conspicuous place than has been given by recent writers of general text-books on psychology. In doing this I have aimed to so coordinate the material as to escape the criticism of producing a loose mixture of physiology and introspective description. In the fourth place, I have aimed to make as clear as possible the significance of ideation as a unique and final stage of evolution. The continuity running through the evolution of the sensory and motor functions in all grades of animal life is not, I believe, the most significant fact for psychology. The clear recognition of this continuity which the student reaches through studies of sensation and habit, and even perception, is the firmest possible foundation on which to base an intelligent estimate of the significance of human ideational processes. The clear comprehension of the dominant importance of ideational processes in man's life is at once the chief outcome of our study and the complete justification for a science of psychology, distinct from all of the other special disciplines which deal with life and its variations. The purpose of this book may, therefore, be stated in terms which mark as sharp a contrast as possible with much that has been said and written of late regarding the advantages of a biological point of view in the study of consciousness. This work is intended to develop a point of view which shall include all that is given in the biological doctrine of adaptation, while at the same time it passes beyond the biological doctrine to a more elaborate principle of indirect ideational adaptation"--Preface.
