I have endeavored in the present volume to bring together in an orderly way the results of the different researches on attention, and the theory that results is, I hope, nothing more than a general statement of fact. For the sake of completeness, more emphasis has been placed upon the higher mental processes than is usual in works on attention. In the present (English) edition I have taken advantage of the greater space to make numerous additions. I have added chapters upon measurements of attention, upon the relations of attention to the feelings and to the self, and have appended a chapter on the educational applications of some of the conclusions. Moreover, the short chapter in the French edition on memory, will, and reason has been expanded into three. New material has been introduced here and there throughout the work."
