The domain of psychology comprises the phenomena that we may call conscious or psychological reactions. By psychological reactions we mean the responses which psychological organisms, such as human individuals and higher types of animals, perform when they adjust themselves to the various stimulating objects surrounding them. A few of the topics in this book include: the primary data of psychology; the nature of basic conduct and how it is developed; the nature of sensing and perceiving; the nature of volitional conduct; the psychology of language; and the behavior of the organism during sleep.

About the author

J. R. Kantor

Jacob Robert Kantor (1888-1984) was a prominent systematic psychologist who organized scientific values into a coherent system of psychology. From the interbehavioral perspective, self-actional causes, whether fictional events (e.g., mentalism) or fictional powers attributed to otherwise actual events (brain as cause of behavior), are anathema to the science of psychology. He was the author of a number of books on general logic, psychology, and the logic of science. He also published numerous articles in scientific journals. Among his publications are The Logic of Modern Science, Psychology and Logic, and The Aim and Progress of Psychology and Other Sciences.
