Summary note
"Each branch of science is engaged in the investigation of a definite set of problems. As it collects data, it re-formulates its interest, re-defines its tasks, and re-interprets data previously collected. Psychology in the last few decades has been undergoing a major transition in point of view and interest. This newer point of view is usually termed behavioristic, since those adopting it are interested in the description and explanation of human behavior, particularly that behavior which is socially significant. Conceiving this to be the central interest of present-day psychology, I have in this book but one aim, to help the student to an understanding of his behavior and that of others. The choice of material, the order of development, and the terminology used have been determined by this aim"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved).
