A Handbook of Child Psychology

A Handbook of Child Psychology THE subject of child psychology is really a very old one, although the interest displayed in it by so many psychologists, medical men and lay persons, is very largely a post-War phenomenon. Prof. Carl Murchison presents us with an extremely varied and well-balanced selection of papers by authorities on problems of child psychology the world over. In his preface he mentions the omission of a chapter on the delinquent child and calls for discussion. It is admittedly difficult to deal adequately with delinquency in children in a single chapter, but we think that the subject belongs very much more to the realm of psychology than to that of sociology. One has only to read Burt's “Young Delinquent” to realise the wide ramifications of delinquency when regarded as a psychological problem. We would very much welcome two or even three chapters devoted to delinquency in the next edition. The chapter devoted to eating, sleeping, and elimination is well done but seems rather long. The chapters by such authorities as Piaget and Bühler need no recommendation, since they are typical of the high standard one expects. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Springer Journals
