Summary
"The present publication is a sequel to my former one (see record 2004-20103-000), on the Senses and the Intellect, and completes a Systematic Exposition of the Human Mind. The generally admitted but vaguely conceived doctrine of the connection between mind and body has been throughout discussed definitely. In treating of the Emotions, I include whatever is known of the physical embodiment of each. The Natural History Method, adopted in delineating the Sensations, is continued in the Treatise on the Emotions. The first chapter is devoted to Emotion in general; after which the individual kinds are classified and discussed; separate chapters being assigned to the Aesthetic Emotions, arising on the contemplation of Beauty in Nature and Art, and to the Ethical, or the Moral Sentiment. Under this last head, I have gone fully into the Theory of Moral Obligation. It has been too much the practice to make the discussion of the Will comprise only the single metaphysical problem of Liberty and Necessity. Departing from this narrow usage, I have sought to ascertain the nature of the faculty itself, its early germs, or foundations in the human constitution, and the course of its development, from its feeblest indications in infancy to the maturity of its power. Five chapters are occupied with this investigation; and five more with subjects falling under the domain of the Will, including the Conflict of Motives, Deliberation, Resolution, Effort, Desire, Moral Habits, Duty, and Moral Inability. A closing chapter embraces the Free-will controversy. As in my view, Belief is essentially related to the active part of our being, I have reserved the consideration of it to the conclusion of the Treatise on the Will. The final dissertation of the work is on Consciousness"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
