FIRST STEPS IN PSYCHOLOGY A book called The A.B.C. of
Psychology sets about justifying its existence by calling attention to the sad plight of all those who are mildly interested in psychology. " They would like," it says, " to read Shand's Foundations of Character, Marshall's Consciousness, Mitchell's Structure and Growth of the Mind, Wundt, Lipps, and Stumpf*, Hobhouse's Mind in Evolution, Dumas' Traite, the Analytic Psychology of Professor Stoutt (having dipped perhaps into a volume with almost the same title by Dr. Jung), Urban's exhaustive treatise on Valuation, Baldwin's Thought and Things, or the late Professor Ward's Psychological Principles ; but they have- no' ready means of discovering which is about what." Or why, for that matter.
