Hobhouse's mind in evolution
AbstractReviews the book, by L. T. Hobhouse (1915). Various chapters of this second edition have been importantly modified, and two new chapters have been added. These new chapters are titled, "Mind and Mechanism" and "Conation." As a notable addition to the new edition, an appendix dealing with the Elberfeld horses is provided. It should be noted that the author has not essentially changed his conceptions of the course of mental evolution, its principal stages, or of the role of consciousness in organic evolution. The book in its new form should serve as a valuable textbook of the genetic psychology in advanced courses, for although in no sense elementary, it is clearly and forcibly written, and although incomplete as to materials and descriptions of method, it yet presents the best available general outline of mental evolution.
