Mental Mechanisms

William Alanson White

"Mental Mechanisms" is a 1911 work by William A. White that attempts to outline certain fundamental principles of psychology. Originally intended for the student or young physician, it is written in the simplest terms while still being detailed and informative. This fascinating volume will appeal to those with an interest in psychology and especially it's modern development. Contents include: "Some Considerations on the Constitution of Consciousness-Relation of Mental and Physical", "Types of Reaction--Defence and Compensation", "The Content of Consciousness--Dreams--Symbolism--The Psychoses--Folk Lore", "The Complex", "Types of Complex", etc. William Alanson White (1870 - 1937) was a notable American psychiatrist and neurologist. Other works by this author include: "The Meaning of Disease" (1926), Outlines of Psychiatry" (1915), and "Diseases of the Nervous System" (1915). Many vintage books like this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now complete with the original text and artwork for the enjoyment of readers now and for years to come.
