As stated in the preface, psychology is here approached from its neurologic aspects and an effort is made consistently to suggest what actually takes place in the neuronic structure of the nervous system and to view behavior in terms of responses to stimulation. While, perhaps, these references do not add greatly to understanding the dynamics of behavior and its manifestations, they do serve to emphasize the need of using physiologic and biologic knowledge as a check on purely speculative phraseology, which can readily come to be regarded as fact. This is well illustrated in the final chapters that deal with symbolisms, dreams and the freudian and other psychoanalytic interpretations. To a large extent the subject matter of the studies consists of a formal psychology, including such subjects as memory, emotion, instincts, habits and consciousness, and does not deal with a really dynamic psychology through which one can gain some insight
