Source Books in the History of the Sciences


This is an exceptional compilation… Not only does it provide students with selections from important sources which they almost certainly would not otherwise read, but it whets the appetite to search further in the early literature of many topics of contemporary psychological interest… This book is an admirable collection which does great credit to the judgment of its editors…this book embodies intellectual standards not always upheld in the subject today.The Times Literary Supplement

This is without any question the best, and perhaps the only really good, selection of primary material relevant to the history of experimental psychology… The principal translators, Mollie D. Boring and Don Cantor, should share with the editors the credit for an important job very well done.Science

More than a quarter of the articles are translated into English for the first time. A fine, well-balanced contribution to the history of psychology.Scientific American

The history of psychology contains magic names. Important passages from many of them are reprinted in this book, which is really a compendium of ideas for research; for one has the uncomfortable feeling when reading it that there are hints whose import one does not yet recognize.British Journal of Psychology

An excellent job of judicious compression has been practised without losing the meaning and the flavour of the original… In each case the passage quoted has had a formative influence on the history of the subject… This is a fascinating book.Quarterly Journal of Experimental Physiology

HUP ReadUP: Summer Reads

We asked our colleagues, “What is one word you would use to describe an ideal summer read?” Their answers range across all the summer feels, from those easygoing lazy hazy days to that voltage of energy that fires up a reawakening. What’s more, their responses include book recommendations sure to help you breeze through the sunny season—from our own library as well as those of fellow university presses.
