Dynamics in Psychology

Excerpt

These chapters contain a discussion of psychologycal theory and its function in psychological work. The way in which I interpret the relation between theory and factual research is exemplified by two instances. The first introduces Faraday's views into the theory and investigation of perception, the second applies the same concepts to problems of memory.

I feel greatly indebted to the University of Virginia for the honor of having been invited to deliver the Page-Barbour Lectures of 1938. The present chapters represent a slightly amplified version of the actual lectures.

To Professor and Mrs. M. Mandelbaum I wish to express my thanks for invaluable help in transforming my English into a readable text. Dr. Hans Wallach has been an indefatigable collaborator in the experimental work which is described in the second chapter. I am also grateful to him for the preparation of the figures which will assist the reader in following the arguments of this book. My wife has done untiring work as typist.

SWARTHMORE, WOLFGANG KÖHLER.
