Excerpt from A History of Psychology
The following work is a translation of Professor Klemm's Geschichte der Psychologie, which constitutes Volume VIII of the now widely known series "Science and Hypothesis." As a searching study of an enormously wide and difficult field the original German work has already won for itself an established place in the recent literature of the subject, and it is confidently believed that the quantities which have given the original work its deserved popularity, the author's equally firm grasp of the most widely separated psychological epochs and tendencies, his admirable attention to both the speculative and the scientific aspects of psychology, and, finally the relative prominence given to recent and experimental psychology, will at once commend the work to the large number of workers in modern psychology to whom English works of just this type have heretofore not been available.
The work of translation has been about equally divided between the two translator, Chapters I - VI, inclusive, been executed by myself, and Chapters VII - XII, inclusive, by Doctor Pintner, and each translator is solely responsible for the final form in which his own part of the work appears.
I wish to express my cordial acknowledgments to Professor Münsterberg, to whose friendly suggestion the plan for this translation owed its first inception, and to Professor Titchener for a number of valued suggestions on terminology.
