Excerpt

The present work has been written to take the place of my Outline of Psychology. The Outline, which was stereotyped in 1896, had long passed beyond the possibility of revision, and the continued demand for it showed that there was still room in the science for a text-book which set experimental methods and experimental results in the forefront of discussion. I should have preferred, however ungratefully, to let the book die its natural death; for I feared that it would be impossible to recover the freshness and vigour of the first writing, and I knew that another issue would lay an oppressive tax upon future time and energy. But colleagues and pupils and publisher were insistent, and I finally decided to rewrite. A first part, containing approximately half of the new work, appeared in 1909. For the benefit of those who have purchased this installment, the second part is now issued in separate form. Both parts are comprised in the present volume.

It was the intention of author and publisher that, on the completion of the Text-book, the Outline should be withdrawn from the market. They look forward to this withdrawal in the near future; meanwhile, so long as the steady demand for the book is kept up, the last edition of the Outline will be held on sale.--
