A Text-book of Experimental Psychology

Nature volume 81, pages 123124 (29 July 1909) | Download Citation



THIS book supplies a want which has been long felt by both students and teachers. Until now there has been no text-book to meet the special needs of those attending a course of instruction in experimental psychology. There have been books on psychology written on an experimental basis which have differed little, if at all, from others not so characterised, and there have been handbooks for the laboratory, notably that of Titchener, but there has been no book which attempted to give in reasonable compass a general account of experimental methods and of the resulis which have been gained by the experimental movement in psycholog. Such a book was needed for two classes of persons, for those definitely committed to the study of the subject, and for the large class of people who know that experimental psychology exists but do not know what it means.
