"We believe psychology can be effectively presented to the beginning student as a science and still be meaningfully related to his own experience. This has been our primary aim and constant guide throughout the writing of this book. We have focused attention on material that is practical and useful to the general student. We have tried to shape this material to the student's interests. Our hope has been to produce an introductory text which would attract the student and lead him to continue his interest in and study of psychology after the course is over. We have recognized the danger of expounding solely in technical terms on the one hand, and the sin of oversimplification on the other. We have tried to chart a sensible course between these two extremes. The coverage of the present edition is complete and balanced while remaining within the scope of a one-semester course. Emphasis has been on understanding everyday human behavior; the areas of psychology which have to do with the abnormal or bizarre have received little emphasis. Since we have felt that the student must first understand the fundamentals of psychology before he can appreciate its specific applications, the space devoted to applied psychology has been kept at a minimum. The plan of this book has been to treat as related topics motivation, emotion, the self, self-defense, and personality, including cultural and social influences. We have also included a survey of the physiological factors that provide the basis for these and other topics, such as perception, thinking, and learning. In a separate section we have discussed the instruments of evaluation of performance, ability, intelligence, etc. In addition we have made a determined effort to treat the relation between heredity and environment in a consistent and significant fashion"--Preface.
