About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1934 as part of the Cambridge Psychological Library, this book is primarily concerned with the psychological aspect of the development of certain manual skills. Cox examines what motor functions and their acquisition can reveal of a subject's psychology, and how such conclusions can be used in vocational and educational guidance. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history and development of psychology and occupational therapy.
