Summary "The evolutionary point of view has affected the current of scientific thought and research in psychology since the time of William James. This point of view transcends special schools and special psychological doctrines. It is the exclusive property of no one of them. It seems strange, therefore, that, with one possible exception, no text has in recent times specifically reflected the evolutionary or genetic approach to psychology. This book has been written to meet what the author believes is a real need in modern psychology. The beginning student will find here a frame of reference upon which to arrange the facts of behavior as they are disclosed to him. It may be employed as a textbook where the biological approach is emphasized, and is especially suitable for collateral reading in other general courses. The lay reader, too, may get from it a picture of psychology in its broad biological setting, from which he may safely proceed to an acquaintance with narrower points of view. Two things have been emphasized, namely, the evolution of structure and the evolution of behavior." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved).
