THE thirteen American, English, German and Italian psychologists whose autobiographies appear in this volume were selected in 1928, like those in the two previous volumes of the series, by a committee of five members of whom the editor was one. The idea of making eminent representatives of one branch of science tell the story of their intellectual development is not a new one, and was probably suggested in this instance by the series edited about fifteen years ago by Prof. L. G. Grote of Halle, in which the history of medicine of the present time is related in an autobiographical form.
