Review by:
E. J.

This book, intended as a reading course for senior students of psychology, is a very fair and comprehensive presentation of the more elementary aspects of the subject. It is well adapted to the purpose for which it is written and clears a great deal of preliminary ground so as to make it possible for the student to concentrate on further problems.

The book gives, however, to European readers a keen impression of the remoteness of Oregon, for one is struck throughout by the author's out-of-touchness with European work. Most of the references are to American writers or, in a few cases, American translations rather than English ones.
