Abstract

This volume is in the Conduct of Mind Series, which aims to supply a foundation for the practical application of psychology. The more didactic chapters are introduced by essays on play, serviceable memory and mental efficiency, considered from the point of view of mental health. Then mental laws are discussed, and are shown to explain the phenomena of illusions. In this section there are various entertaining diagrams. Laboratory methods are shown as applied to the measurement of musical ability. The subjects are selected merely for their illustrative value and are not meant to cover the entire field. The book reveals the practical use which may be made of psychology in everyday life, and gives some excellent suggestions.
