Summary
"During World War II every psychologist had a job to do. His contributions sometimes were made in uniform and sometimes in whatever vestless and cuffless suit was available. Whether in uniform or not, the psychologist's work was related to the war effort or to the essential war functions of the nation. When the war ended, the psychologist found that his responsibilities were no less urgent. For the future his prospects seem to be even heavier burdens and a neverending path. Since the years 1940 and 1941, the psychologist has shown himself capable of performing duties not previously allotted to him, or, for that matter, not previously delegated to anyone else. There has grown up a better understanding of the potential functions of the psychologist, an understanding which creates new assignments for him. Instead of a reluctance to intrust to him problems in human behavior, there is today an insistence that he attempt problems with which perhaps he is not yet prepared to deal. Clearly these past few years have been an era of great change in psychology, as they have in many other fields. It is unfortunate that during these dramatic and eventful times, there were few professional meetings and little time or opportunity for the discussion of professional problems. With the return of the possibility of holding professional meetings, it occurred to us that a symposium on current trends in psychology would be most timely and desirable. With the cordial support of the administrative officials of the University, we were able to hold at the University of Pittsburgh, on March 5 and 6, 1947, a conference on current trends in psychology. The present volume contains the papers delivered then. In planning our program we attempted to include in it discussions of recent advances and of probable future developments in several fields of psychology. There necessarily was a limit to the number of fields which could be included. In each chosen area of psychology we selected a speaker who is now active in that field"--Preface.
