This book reflects a series of experiments carried on in various institutions to establish, if possible, the factors that determine the behavior of the infant and, therefore, later in life, of the adult. It is a continuation of the experiments of Watson, and a consideration of their applicability and of the literature on related subjects. The book may be considered a monograph in a new field, opening up the subject rather than establishing any definite conclusions. The authors postulate definite types of emotional response and provide definitions of normality and abnormality that are in accord with modern conceptions.
