From the cover: “Like its sister volume Social Psychology through Experiment this book is written primarily as a companion to work in the teaching laboratory, but it will also show the interested ‘layman’ the way the experimentalist works on this most elusive and difficult subject.

Instructor and pupil alike will find it a unique companion to experimental teaching, in that the endeavour throughout has been to exhibit wherever possible the logic of research, step by step, each topic being treated by a man of high reputation both as an investigator and as a teacher. In this way the learner is led to mould and consolidate his own conclusions, and to appreciate in full the difficulties and controls necessary for the advancement of knowledge. Thus he comes to understand the careful work lying behind the simple-sounding statements of a good textbook.

There are seven chapters covering the main topics of experimental psychology, by the following authors, J. A. Deutsch, N. F. Dixon, Brian Foss, R. L. Gregory, Ian M. L. Hunter, Harry Kay, J. Szafran and Alan Watson.”
