Publisher: Philadelphia : F. A. Davis Co., 1918Description: ix, 351 p., plates : ill. ; cm.Subject(s): Mental illness -- Diagnosis | Mental Disorders -- diagnosisAdditional physical formats: OriginalOnline resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: "Before "The Ungeared Mind" saw the light of day, when its germinal elements were floating in a free and unorganized form in the current of the writer's thoughts, it occurred to him to gather together the material which comprises the observations and experiences of at lifetime into book form. The suggestion implied, for the reward of labor, a certain modicum of utility that may be helpful to others. He has undertaken the task, assuming it may not prove too ambitious for his short-nib pen, or too prosaic to be of interest to the general reader. The book forms a collection of medical writings semi-scientific in character, shorn in a large degree of technical terms and phrases. The viewpoint of the general reader who has a taste for popular science is carefully kept in mind. It is one of the provinces of the work to point out the pitfalls in the common highways of life and to show how to avoid many errors which unheeded lead to ill health. Sections XIV and XV are studies made many years ago which appeared originally in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Diseases and the American Journal of Insanity. For the present purpose they have been revised and rewritten to satisfy a wider and riper experience, and are brought into conformity with up-to-date teachings. The author is indebted for a few excerpts from his Mental Medicine and Nursing. He takes this occasion to express his obligation to Dr. C. H. Town, his former instructor in psychology, for many borrowed ideas, and to Dr. A. C. Buckley for assistance in proof reading and for many valued suggestions"--Preface.
