The Principles of Psychology
by William James
The Principles of Psychology is a two-volume introduction to the study of the human mind. Based on his classroom lessons and first published in 1890, James has gathered together what he feels to be the most interesting and most accessible information for the beginning student. Psychology, according to James, deals with thoughts and feelings as its facts and does not attempt to determine where such things come from.

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 is a guide to human body language, personality, character, and qualities. It takes reading body language and voice inflection for meaning to the next level, analyzing such elements as mental qualities, emotive qualities, relative qualities.

I lay less stress upon knowledge and more upon point of view. I shall be fully satisfied if the reader learns to be clear and definite in his objections, realizes his own point of view, and sticks to it in working out his own psychological system.

I wrote this book to help students organize their thinking about social psychology at a conceptual level. I hope that they will remember some basic ideas, for it is these principles that will allow them to critically analyze new situations.
