The first was to give proper weight to all significant recent research in the field of abnormal psychology and the second was to increase the clarity of the presentation. The aim has been to interest the student in the scientific aspects of the subject and to stimulate him to think for himself rather than to subscribe to any school of thought. The experience of numerous students has demonstrated beyond much doubt that an excellent way to study normal human behavior is to study such behavior in distortion or in exaggeration. When the abnormalities in human mental life are discussed as aberrations of normal traits, as we have consistently done in this book, the study of abnormal psychology becomes an excellent way to give the students an indelible knowledge of the laws of mental health. We hope that this revision makes the book more accurate, more scientific, more interesting and clear, and makes it a better guide for the study of mental health"--Preface.
