Publisher: New York ; London : Century Co., [c1932]Description: viii, 142 p. : ill. ; 21 cm.Subject(s): Association of ideas | AssociationAdditional physical formats: OriginalOnline resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: "This essay deals with the present-day outcome of the theory of association. My object is not to glorify the past nor to show that there is nothing new under the sun. Neither am I interested in resurrecting ideas that would better remain in their becoming graves. I regard it as important that modern ideas of associative connection and organization have come out of a long history, but my principal concern is with that edition of the general theory of association which is to-day actually functioning in experimental psychology. It seems to me that this theory deserves much more thought and elaboration than it has had. The hope of clearly conceived experimentation in the field of learning waits upon a critical and exhaustive consideration of what the theory of association ought to be for the psychologist of to-day"--Preface.
