Between the physical world of vibration and the world of consciously heard music lies a third area, which is the province of the psychology of music. This introduction, first published in 1938, by the developer of the Seashore test of musical ability, is a thorough survey of this field. A standard text for psychologists specializing in the area, teachers, or interested musicologists.
