by Robert Gregson - ANU Press
This book is a series of case studies with a common theme. A core idea is that both the human organism and the data analysis procedures used are filters, that may variously preserve, transform, distort or even destroy information of significance.
This book represents a history of psychology -- not the only one and certainly not a complete one, but definitely an interesting one and one that represents many of the varied interests of the students in this particular class.
by Sigmund Freud - Macmillan
This book outlines Freud's theory of unconscious forces in the context of dream analysis. Introducing the id, the superego, and the ego, Freud advanced scientific understanding of the mind by exposing motivations invisible to our consciousness.
by Mary Whiton Calkins - The Macmillan Company
The book is written in the conviction that psychology should study consciousness, both as a series of complex mental processes, and as a relation of conscious selves to each other. The book is intended for students beginning the study of psychology.
