Human Nature and Conduct
by

Publisher: Henry Holt & Co.
ISBN/ASIN: B00A73FO42
Number of pages: 354

Description:
The book seriously sets forth a belief that an understanding of habit and of different types of habit is the key to social psychology, while the operation of impulse and intelligence gives the key to individualized mental activity. But they are secondary to habit so that mind can be understood in the concrete only as a system of beliefs, desires and purposes which are formed in the interaction of biological aptitudes with a social environment.
