A&C Black, 1998 - Psychology - 588 pages
0 Reviews
Writing from a rigorously deterministic and positivistic stance and drawing on evidence from psychopathology and neural physiology, Taine mounted an influential attack on the tendency toward reification inherent in faculty psychology. For Taine, terms such as 'self', 'memory', and 'season' stood not for entities but simply for successions of mental events.
