9781440070426: Animal Intelligence: Experimental Studies (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Animal Intelligence: Experimental Studies

The main purpose of this volume is to make accessible to students of psychology and biology the author's experimental studies of animal intellect and behavior. These studies have, I am informed by teachers of comparative psychology, a twofold interest. Since they represent the first deliberate and extended application of the experimental method in animal psychology, they are a useful introduction to the later literature of that subject. They mark the change from books of general argumentation on the basis of common experience interpreted in terms of the faculty psychology, to monographs reporting detailed and often highly technical experiments interpreted in terms of original and acquired connections between situation and response. Since they represent the point of view and the method of present animal psychology, but in the case of very general and simple problems, they are useful also as readings for students who need a general acquaintance with some sample of experimental work in this field.

About the Author :

Edward L. Thorndike (1874-1949) had a distinguished career in psychology that spanned more than half a century. Through most of his career, Thorndike was a professor of psychology at Columbia University. He authored more than 500 publications.
 



Darryl Bruce is professor of psychology at Saint Mary's University, Halifax, Nova Scotia. He is the author of many articles and the co-editor of Autobiographical Memory: Theoretical and Applied Perspective and Eyewitness Memory: Theoretical and Applied Perspectives.

Review :

“One hundred years ago, Thorndike's experiments on the learning of cats, dogs, chickens, and fish initiated the study of comparative psychology... This reissue of the 1911 monograph by Thorndike (d. 1949) will interest historians of science. The work was written in refreshingly plain English and contains many figures and tables with his experimental data, and a short index...  Graduate students; faculty.” 

—T. C. Williams, Choice

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Animal Intelligence: Experimental Studies It has seemed best to leave the texts unaltered except for the correction of typographical errors, renumbering of tables and figures, and redrawing the latter. In a few places, where the original text has been found likely to be misunderstood, brief notes have been added. It is hard to resist the impulse to temper the style, especially of the Animal Intelligence, with a certain sobriety and restraint. What one writes at the age of twenty-three is likely to irritate oneself a dozen years later, as it doubt less irritated others at the time. The charitable reader may allay his irritation by the thought that a degree of exuberance, even of arrogance, is proper to youth.
