Presents an obituary for James Drever (1873-1950). Emeritus-Professor James Drever was undoubtedly one of the outstanding psychologists of his generation, and his influence on the progress and development of psychology can never be estimated. His death, on August 10th, 1950, was a grievous loss,...
"It is suggested that certain of the descriptive categories of psychology be replaced by the two basic concepts, energy mobilization and direction, which, combined in various ways, now constitute the full content of these concepts. An attempt has been made to clarify further the meaning of the...
In order to determine, by a process of explicit derivation, the extent to which Hull's theory is sufficiently complete to deal with the type of situation involved in double, triple, and quadruple repetition learning, a number of empirical facts from an experiment are examined. The resulting...
"A general set of postulates, based upon Hull's theory of behavior, is presented as the theoretical basis of the quantification of effective reaction potential. These postulates are believed to be logically independent of those dealing with other constructs . . . . The derivations of the...
