Psychology In Theory And Application. By Horace W. Dresser, Ph.D. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Co., 1924. Cloth. Pp. 727.

In preparing this book the author has attempted to present in a coordinated way the several divisions and applications of the entire subject of scientific psychology, in order to meet the need which has arisen because of the very rapid advance in knowledge of this special subject and of its allied sciences.

Since psychology or the study of the mind is of general interest, in fact, is of most vital concern to man, this sort of coördination should meet with approval; particularly when it is not approached from a special partisanship point of view. Such a book should be suitable as a guide for teachers and students in general psychology, psychology of education, and in so-called applied psychology where ethics, “social sciences” and industrial relations are considered.

The book has been written in five parts. Part one deals in part with brief general descriptions of the various types of “schools” of psychology, elementary principles, principles of habit formation, affection and emotion, association and memory, temperament and characters and the nature of thought processes, most of which is material taken from the older psychology and is therefore of historical interest only. The liberal references to the literature will offer the student sufficient supplementary reading.
