THE purpose of this large and comprehensive volume, issued from Clark University, one of the recognised homes of psychological research, is to indicate just where we stand at the present time in regard to the experimental method of inquiry in this field. To review such a book in detail would be a rather hopeless task, since it consists of no fewer than twenty-three independent studies of the subjects finally selected for treatment. But many of our readers will be glad to have an indication of the contents of the volume.
