Motive-Force and Motivation-Tracks (eBook)
by e. boyd barrett (Author)
It was with the object of analysing some phases of the choice-process that the present experimental researches were undertaken. They were carried on in the Psychological Laboratory, of the Superior Institute of Philosophy, at Louvain University, during the aca demic years 1909-10, and 1910-11. This thesis, submitted in part for the Doctorate of Philosophy, at Louvain, and afterwards as a whole, for the degree of Master of Arts, in the National University of Ireland, has been written under pressure of time. The author feels that he has neither done justice to the subject treated, nor to the materials at his dis posal. Nevertheless, he feels that first efforts, towards an experimental knowledge of the Will are likely to be received indulgently, especially if they lead to some improvement or development of the method of this nascent branch of Psychology.
