A Naturalist of Souls: Studies in Psychography (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Naturalist of Souls: Studies in Psychography
But, it is urged, if the obj ect is thus chronological completeness, in what respect does psychography differ from biography? Simply that biography is bound to present an elaborate sequence of dates, events, and circumstances, of which some are vital to the analysis of, the individual subject, but many are merely required to make the narrative complete. From this vast and necessary material of biography, psychography selects only that which is indispensable for its particular purpose, and as the accumulation of books becomes yearly greater and greater, it seems as if this principle of condensation must become more and more pressing in its appeal.
