This is the first book in a nine-volume work on experimental psychology. The series will consider in depth this extensive area of psychology as a fitting supplement to the Koch series considering all of psychology as science. In an overview of this volume, since a detailed review is not possible, it can be stated that the evolution of experimental psychology by Fraisse, the experimental method by Fraisse, explanation in psychology and psychophysiological parallelism by Piaget, and measurement in psychology by Reuchliss are superbly covered and written in understandable language and well translated by Chambers. The series as exemplified by the first volume will be a valuable addition to psychiatrists' libraries.
