Specialization here is almost as obvious as in other scientific pursuits. "General" psychology should introduce the student to facts and conclusions in many fields. It is for this reason that the pages which follow have been written by nine students of psychology, representing different interests and different specialized training. The editors and the authors of the present work offer no apologies that they are not presenting a "new" psychology. We have tried to keep in mind the needs of the elementary student and the general reader, and to provide those fundamentals which may be adopted and elaborated for use in business, in a profession, in social service, or in the upbringing of children"--Pref.
