The Teaching of Psychology in Universities of the United States

  • Charles S. Myers

A SEVEN weeks' visit to seven principal universities in the eastern States of America is a sorry qualification for talking to you upon this subject. Nor, indeed, is it easy during the brief time at my disposal to give you a satisfactory account of the impressions which I formed during my visit. I can only hope that the shortcomings and inaccuracies of this paper do not exceed what may be called their normal number under such circumstances, and that you may be induced some day to repeat for yourselves experiences which I have been the first to enjoy with such pleasure, interest, and profit. Nowhere will your colleagues extend a warmer welcome to you, nowhere will they take greater trouble in displaying and explaining to you their institutions.
