The Principles of Psychology, Vol. 2 of 2 (Classic Reprint)
Fb&c Limited, 2017年9月15日 - 714 頁
The Principles of Psychology: Volume Two is the continuation of William James' seminal work on the study of psychology. Alongside Volume One, this republication sees the brilliant philosopher and psychologist continue the discussion of the fundamental factors one must consider when studying psychology.
It is important to note that this text does not contain a summary or review of Volume One, thus, it is critical for the reader to be familiar with James' first volume before beginning this one. Volume Two opens at chapter seven, which features a discussion of sensation. Throughout the work James provides a light history of psychology, and chapter seven sees James allude to the work of other psychologists who the author considers to be highly influential. Other chapters in this volume discuss imagination, instinct, human perception of reality and emotions, to name but a few.
The Principles of Psychology is a foundational work of the discipline. While James' views have long since been argued against, and thus this work is no longer appropriate as an introduction to the field, the student seeking a complete understanding of psychology must familiarize themselves with this work. James' theories served as the building blocks and stepping stones of more modern thinkers, and it is inarguable that the author's work has not been critical in the development of psychoanalysis.
The Principles of Psychology: Volume Two is the continuation of William James' masterwork. It is a classic text, and one that still influences the field of psychology today. Any student, or enthusiast of psychology owe it to themselves to read this book.
