This book is a careful, scholarly presentation of psychology as fundamentally a biological science out of which social psychology and applied psychology developed as distinct but related disciplines. Professor Hebb is consistent throughout the entire text in emphasizing "biological" psychology.
Although considerably smaller than the usual "introductory" psychology textbook, Dr. Hebb has been successful in describing all the major areas of modern psychology within a scientific and theoretical framework that reflects the author's outstanding professional stature. He accomplishes his stated objective of providing the student with the "fundamental ideas of psychology as a science" and not the popularized "newspaper psychology."
