View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The Principles of Psychology was the first of Spencer's works to bring his name to prominence, not least by drawing him into the extended epistemological debate with John Stuart Mill. The Principles exercised an important influence on the following generation of psychologists, including William James, one of the pioneers of experimental psychology, and neurologist Hughlings Jackson.

Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) was an English philosopher, political theorist, sociological theorist, author, and editor. He served in the later capacity for the "Economist" from 1843 to 1853. He is perhaps best known for applying evolutionary theory to social development and coined the term "survival of the fittest." His best known works are "Man versus the State" and the multi-volume "System of Synthetic Philosophy".
