In this volume the professor of psychology of Smith College has assembled selections from various textbooks and from the periodical literature on psychology, with a view to presenting material that will give the average reader a proper point of view in the field concerned. The rise of various schools of abnormal psychology largely associated with the names of distinguished leaders like Janet, Freud, Jung and McDougall has naturally made divergent views. Worst of all are the vocabularies for each of the groups. The advantage of assembled documents such as can be found in Taylor's selection is the grouping under major headings of this material. Professor Taylor has been able to tie together the sections of the work by his succinct and enlightening comments. The reader who wishes to inform himself broadly in these fields can find no better work.
