Putnam, James Jackson, 1846-1918
Mind and body; Psychology; Ebook
From both a philosophical and scientific perspective, this book throws light on the subject with which it is primarily concerned--human motives. The hidden impulses that so often hurry us to rash actions; the weeds in our minds that need to be uprooted lest they obtain a fatal dominance over our constructive energies; the secret sources of harmful habits--on all of these the author turns the revealing gleam of psychological analysis. Throughout, the author emphasizes the importance of studying motives with reference to the dynamic forces that underlie them, rather than with reference to their face value; and, attacking them from this better point of view, he brings to the reader a message of personal importance.
