Summary: "This text has been written rather compactly. It aims to present a clear, matter-of-fact and concise statement of general principles of psychology (as a study of mental activities) with just enough illustrative material to enable the student to comprehend those principles. This mode of presentation presumes that the text will be used as a basis for class discussion, and that it will need to be supplemented with a considerable amount of exposition and illustration by the instructor. In other words, the use of the text presupposes a teacher rather than a mere quizmaster"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
