Developmental Psychology. An Introduction to the Study of Human Behavior. By Florence L. Goodenough. Published by D. Appleton-Century Co., Inc., New York-London. Pp. 604+ Indexes. Illus.
This work on genetic psychology by Miss Goodenough is evidently intended to be used as a textbook. It therefore presents its material in an orderly fashion, beginning with a general statement of what psychology is, its problems and methods, and then proceeding with the developmental story of the human individual at the psychological level. This story begins with the genes. The introductory chapters here give a clear presentation of the hereditary factors involved. From here it proceeds to the pre-natal development, the growth and function of the sense organs and the behavior of the unborn child. Then it takes up the child at birth, the pre- and post-verbal stages, etc., throughout the list to old age. It is a remarkably well done piece of work, contains a great mass of information, and even though it is written for textbook purposes it is nevertheless so well done that it is interesting, readable and might easily be appealing to the intelligent layman in this field. It affords a splendidly selected material as background for the student who is entering upon his study of psychology.
Sex Habits: A Vital Factor In Well-Being. By A. Buschke, M.D., and F. Jacobsohn, M.D.
A very readable book on the whole question of sex, including a discussion of the structure and functions of the organs involved, fertilization, development of the embryo, the various aspects of the sex impulse in both its normal and abnormal manifestations, with chapters on venereal disease, prophylaxis, heredity, eugenics and marriage. It is well written, well translated, and an admirable book to put in the hands of the laity. It has no special interest for readers of the REVIEW, and in those few instances in which psychoanalysis is mentioned it is obvious that the writers have a very inadequate idea of its significance.
