Socrates

Or the Emancipation of Mankind

H F Carlill

Originally published in 1927

"One of the most brilliant and important of a remarkable series." Westminster Gazette

This volume examines the differences between humans and animals and discusses the freedom that a proper understanding of psychology will bring to the human race. The author argues that the whole psycho-physical organism will be regarded as what it is – a mechanism full of inherited tendencies and untapped energies which needs to be consciously adjusted and controlled.

Morpheus or the Future of Sleep

D F Fraser-Harris

Originally published in 1928.

"His arguments, clearly and ably presented, hold our interest." Clarion

"Shows that the doctors do not as yet know much about the subject." Queen

This volume discusses sleep and the part it plays in maintaining health. It contains suggestions for sufferers from insomnia, discusses dreams and their causes and suggests the probable line of investigation of sleep problems.

Sisyphus or the Limits of Psychology

M Jaeger

Originally published in 1929.

"Much acumen and knowledge. All students of psychology should read it." Manchester Guardian

This volume argues that Psychology (although a "young" science in 1929) has just as an important role to play as Physics and Chemistry, because it affects the ordinary person and is not merely limited to the scientific community. The opportunities is provides, as well as its limits, are discussed.

A Study of Evolutionary Psychology and Morals

C J Patten

Originally published in 1924

"This bright and bracing little book." Literary Guide

"Interesting and original." Medical Times

This volume examines the evolution of the mental and moral faculties of animals. This knowledge, in the author’s opinion is critical for understanding the evolution of human mortality.
