MENTAL DEVELOPMENT IN
THE CHILD AND THE RACE.

METHODS AND PROCESSES.

BY
JAMES MARK BALDWIN, M.A., Ph.D.

_Stuart Professor of Psychology in Princeton University; Author of
"Handbook of Psychology," "Elements of Psychology"; Co-Editor of "The
Psychological Review."_

WITH SEVENTEEN FIGURES AND TEN TABLES.

SECOND EDITION, CORRECTED.

Price $2.60, net.

NOTICES.

"The great problem of the evolution of mind has received many notable
contributions towards its solution of late years. We question, however,
if there are any which, in time to come, will occupy a higher place than
the work now before us. This it owes partly to its subject, partly to
its treatment. Mr. Baldwin with rare skill has traced the thread of
development from individuals to races, and has shown how the element of
heredity plays a much larger part than is supposed in the economy of
mental evolution.... The book is evidently the result of years of close
observation and study. Its method is admirable, the induction is broad
and reliable, while the conclusions drawn in most cases are both
rigorously logical and avoid even the suspicion of exaggeration. We
predict a high place in the annals of biological science will yet be
assigned to this admirable work."--_The Liberal_.

"It is a most valuable contribution to biological psychology, which is a
field of modern naturalism in which few have labored."--_The
Critic_.

"'Mental Development' must be regarded as an epoch-making book: it
suggests a new field for experiments and observations, and throws down
the gauntlet to existing theories of mental growth."--_The
Churchman_.

"It is of the greatest value and importance."--_The Outlook_.

"The author emphasizes the motor elements in mental evolution, and thus
introduces into psychogenesis a point of view which is eminently
characteristic of modern psychology.... This summary sketch can give no
idea of the variety of topics which Professor Baldwin handles or of the
originality with which the central thesis is worked out. No psychologist
can afford to neglect the book, and its second part will be eagerly
expected."--PROF. TITCHENER, _Cornell University_.

THE INSTITUTES OF EDUCATION:
COMPRISING A RATIONAL INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY.

BY
S. S. LAURIE, LL.D., F.R.S.E.

_Professor of the Institutes and History of Education, University of
Edinburgh; Author of "Metaphysica" and "Ethica" etc._

16mo. Price $1.00, net.

NOTICE.

"That book is strongest which makes the reader think the most keenly,
vigorously, and wisely, and, judged by this standard, this seems to be
the most useful book of the season. We would put it in the hands of a
working teacher more quickly than any other book that has come to our
desk for many a month."--_Journal of Education._

A COURSE OF LECTURES ON THE
GROWTH AND MEANS OF TRAINING
THE MENTAL FACULTY.

DELIVERED IN THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE

BY
FRANCIS WARNER, M.D. (Lond.),
F.R.C.P., F.R.C.S. (Eng.).

_Physician to the London Hospital; Lecturer on Therapeutics and on
Botany at the London Hospital College; Formerly Hunterian Professor of
Anatomy and Physiology in the Royal College of Surgeons of England._

12mo. Cloth. Price 90 cents, net.

NOTICES.

"It is original, thorough, systematic, and wonderfully suggestive. Every
superintendent should study this book. Few works have appeared lately
which treat the subject under consideration with such originality,
vigor, or good sense."--_Education._

"A valuable little treatise on the physiological signs of mental life in
children, and on the right way to observe these signs and classify
pupils accordingly ... The book has great originality and it should be
very helpful to the teacher on a side of his work much neglected by the
ordinary treatises on pedagogy."--_Literary World._

"The eminence and experience of the author, and the years of careful
study he has devoted to this and kindred subjects, are a sufficient
guarantee for the value of the book; but those who are fortunate enough
to examine it will find their expectations more than fulfilled ... A
great deal may be learned from these lectures, and we strongly commend
them to our readers."--_Canada Educational Journal._
