Summary No broad integration of the affective life has been available for several decades. Many courses on the psychology of the emotions are, nevertheless, being given in various institutions without the aid of a systematic treatise on the subject. Over a period of more than a decade the author has been responsible for a number of major and minor studies on the emotions which have already been published. While he, therefore, assumes no great competency in the field, he nevertheless feels called upon to coordinate this material with other research, done outside his laboratory. Presentation in this form will afford much needed criticism and review in the direction of effective stimulation toward further investigations of our own. It is also the author's hope that the book may lead other psychologists toward more intensive productivity in the field of the emotions. It is not possible in a book of this compass to cite by chapter and verse all contributions which furnish support to the statements made. In that matter the author has been somewhat more prolix than is commonly the practice in textbook writing. Such a procedure was followed because the book will probably find its best outlet in intermediate and advanced classes where an elementary knowledge of psychology may be presumed but where further reading in the sources may also be invited. This is perhaps equally true of professional groups outside psychology who may find it of service. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
