About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1927 as part of the Cambridge Psychological Library, this book emphasizes the importance of the biological foundations of psychology, with perception being the bridge between nerve processes and consciousness. Parsons, an ophthalmic surgeon, views problems of perception as being both biological and psychological issues in the conscious and behavioural lives of an animal. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the overlap between psychological and biological processes.
