Summary
"This work is an attempt to present, with applications, the more important principles of Psychology in a clear and concise form, arranged for High and Normal schools and adapted to the use of teachers and the general reader. The plan of the work, formed several years since, and pursued throughout the period of its preparation, is as follows: 1. The topics are selected for their essential importance and are treated concisely. 2. Such metaphysical discussion as does not belong to an elementary work is omitted or placed in footnotes. The importance of Physiological Psychology is duly regarded. 3. Practical applications of the science are made to Education and the Conduct of Life. 4. In connection with Thinking an outline of Logic is presented. 5. The presentation of many of the topics is inductive in the sense that typical instances precede the statement of principles. For emphasis and convenience the definitions and many principles, summaries, and inferences are printed in different type. 6. For fuller views on some of the topics and for comparison of opinions, references are made to a brief list of available works. 7. Exercises, calculated to test the skill and invite the research of the student, are placed at the end of each subject. The author believes that Practical Psychology has a place in Secondary Schools generally as well as in Normal Schools, because so many of the students of these schools complete their formal education in them, and because so many of them become teachers. In the experience of life every one is in some way a teacher, and every one should have in view at least the further development of his own powers"--Preface.
