Originally published in 1917, this book was written to provide a purely psychological analysis and theory of the process of hearing. The text begins with a discussion of auditory sensations and their attributes, before moving through areas relating to melody, the formation of scales and psychological theories of hearing. A bibliography and explanatory notes are also provided. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in experimental psychology and the history of psychology.
