Psychology from 1889—1900. (Rev. Scient., Sept. 22nd, 1900.) Ribot

  • H. J. Macevoy

This is Ribot's opening address to the Fourth International Congress of Psychology, in which he reviews rapidly the progress of psychology since the preceding congress, observing that certain parts of the science suffer from a plethora of literature and investigation, and others from anæmia. In all directions there is progression. As is the case with many other sciences, the day is near when the publication of voluminous treatises on psychology will not be possible. A comparison of the list of titles taken from the psychological index of the last four years, shows that the yearly increase is marked. Ribot advocates especially the publication of monographs—frequent, numerous, well done.
