EXPLANATORY NOTE BY THE AUTHOR.
I HAVE here reproduced in full, and with almost no change, the principal articles to which reference was made in the Preface to the Fourth Edition of The Emotions and the Will.
They contain, with some little difference in statement, my latest views on such of those debated issues as were not adequately expounded or not given in final shape in either of my two volumes on Psychology
Certain of the articles here reproduced do not essentially belong to the Psychology of the last volume, and are not in the list referred to in the Addenda to the Fourth Edition. Perhaps, the most distinctive of these last is that entitled Mill's Theory of the Syllogism.
To the articles reproduced from Mind, I have added a paper “On the Pressure of Examinations," part of which appeared in Criticisms of a Protest against Examinations, issued by Mr. Auberon Herbert, in 1888. This, though not directly psychological, is germane to the subject, and may have interest for the student of philosophy.
The remaining Essay, on “The Scope of Anthropology and its Relation to the Science of Mind,” was a paper read to the British Association, at the Aberdeen Meeting, in 1885.
