Summary
"Among the currents and cross-currents of modern and contemporary psychological discussions, surely the one most observable trend is toward the objective point of view. Even the most extreme subjectivists have recognized as the explanatory foundation for their science facts and speculations based upon neural physiology. And in latter years to this physiological or intra-organic objectivism has been added a behavioristic or extra-organic objectivism; and a skepticism, nourished by the writings of several critical thinkers, such as Professor Knight Dunlap and Professor Max F. Meyer, as to the adequacies of introspective descriptions of man, has taken constructive and systematic form under the hands of Dr. John B. Watson and others. The present book is offered as a survey of the psychological field as it can be made to-day from this viewpoint. In matters of detail it may not represent precisely the attitude of each and every objective psychologist; but I hope to have blocked out main lines of interpretation with which they would all in some measure agree. My purpose will have been attained if the reader gains a realization of the freshness and the soundness of behaviorism as a basis for attacking the many different problems of human nature in a scientific manner"--Preface.
