PHILOSOPHICAL PEBIODICAXS. 281 pulse of life may pass freely " and " purpose-drawn," like a ware-motion in a liquid.] H. O. Hartmann. ' A Definition of Causation : A Reply to Prof. Sheldon.' [Cf. xi., 8, 10, 12, 14.] ii., 25. A. H. Lloyd. 'The Power Behind the Throne.' [-'Nature.' Visible authority having been so thoroughly discredited, a time of ' Creation' must be at hand.J O. A. Felngold. ' The Psychophysical Basis of Moral Conduct. {" Human conduct is not as ideational nor intuitive as it
more » ... r intuitive as it appears, but is rather the expression of numerous instincts and emotions without any other moral quality than that which attaches to them a posteriori according as they do or do not relieve conscious tension."] J. P. Turner. ' Philosophy and Social Attitudes.' [Belief in progress is modern and contrasts with the ancient sense of man's helplessness. In met«physics ' etenialism ' expresses the old attitude, ' temporalism the new. But we believe ' that progress is possible not certain.] . xi., 26. M. R. Cohen. ' History versus Value. 1 [Against the idea that the meaning of a thing can be exhaustively stated by narrating its history. The historian has always to select and to supplement his data and both these processes involve valuations. Actually "history remains a branch of apologetics, an attempt to justify the powers that have been victorious ". But " the doctrine that right always triumphs is but an insidious form of the immoral doctrine that what triumphs (i.e. might) is always right". Hence " historicism, like its sister materialism, while professing empiricism, is really the offspring of vicious rationalism ". It attempts to banish real possibilities from the world " and is " obsessed with the dogma that only the faotual can have true being ".] ZBITSOHEIJT JOB PSYCHOLOGY. Bd. lxx., Heft 3 und 4. H. W. Meyer. ' Bereitschaft und Wiedererkennen.' [Experiments with meaningless syllables. Simple recognition (like reproduction) is favoured by preparation (Bereitschafi) ; the effect of preparation is unexpectedly persistent; its decay in time may be studied by the method of recognition. The quality of unfamiliarity seems to be rather negative (absence of familiarity) than positive. Under certain circumstances, simple recognition may serve as oriterion of correctness.] I-J. Martin. Ueber die Abhangigkeit visueller Vorstellungsbilder vom Denken : eine experiraentelle Untersuohung.' [Experiments with puzzle-pictures, viBual forms, groups of dots, etc. The visual image is not informatory; its office is to sustain attention, to illustrate and reinforce imageless thought, to warn of incompleteness, eto. ; sometimes it hinders speed of thinking. In general it is dependent upon (secondary to') imageless thought, which it more or less adequately expresses ; it may thus help us to a knowledge of the laws of thought.] Literaturbericht.
