This volume of short essays is designed to introduce the reader to classic contributions in the emergence and growth of scientific psychology in the period 1855-1914. In addition to the foundational volumes of Bain and Spencer and the texts of Taine, Ribot, Lotze, Hoffding, Ladd and James, it focuses on works of the emerging experimentalism (Fechner, Helmholtz, Wundt, Mach, Kulpe, Titchener), major mind/body treatises (Maudsley, Carpenter, Ferrier, Lewes, Jackson), significant handbooks of methodology (Thorndike, Schulze), seminal analyses in social psychology (McDougall), the psychology of individual differences (Galton, Binet), animal mind and behaviour (Romanes, Forel, Morgan, Hobhouse, Throndike, Washburn), development (Baldwin, Claparede), and education (Huey, Thorndike), as well as on early scientific contributions to psychotherapy (Bernheim, Tuckey, Janet, Prince) and applied psychology (Scott, Munsterberg). Each essay places a given work in its intellectual context, summaarizes its basic content, and assesses its general significance.
