Summary
"The clinical study of borderline and exceptional cases of mental defect has led me to undertake a critical evaluation of the several criteria of feeble-mindedness which are commonly employed in mental diagnosis. The exact worth of each of these criteria and their combinations has not been subjected to the rigid inspection which is necessary for scientific method, nor have the specific values of their claims to attention been challenged. In this book I have presented the major diagnostic criteria of feeble-mindedness and the corresponding clinical methods, and have examined the real contribution of each to individual diagnosis, both clinically and theoretically. The manuscript was originally composed for those who are studying feeblemindedness in any of its many ramifications. It was first prepared as a technical contribution designed to answer some of the puzzling questions which arise in clinical mental diagnosis. This book is not constructed after the plan of the usual type of classroom text-book, but may be used as a lecture text. The detailed references and representative bibliography afford material for student practice in library follow-up, and at the same time permit of considerable choice of reading material. The illustrations represent concrete material, such as cases, types, and field trips. A glossary of terms and a glossary of tests are appended for the use of readers not professionally versed in clinical psychology"--Preface.
