Studies in the Evolutionary Psychology of Feeling


Hiram M. Stanley (Editor)

Series: Psychology of Emotions, Motivations and Actions
BISAC: PSY013000

This work, originally published in 1895, does not profess to be a treatise on the subject of feeling, but merely a series of studies, and rather tentative ones at that. It was the author’s intent to deduce from the standpoint of biologic evolution the origin and development of feeling, and then to consider how far introspection confirms these results.
