The Place of Consciousness in Unit Response Psychology

WithMarston William M, King C Daly, Elizabeth H Marston

The problem of consciousness arises, in the first place, from our own subjective experience. There are some psychologists, frequently classed together as Introspectiomsts, who maintain that the classification and investigation of the subjective states of consciousness directly, by a sort of “turning inward of the mind upon itself constitute the entire field of psychology. The Neurologists are disposed to believe that consciousness is connected with the electric field surrounding the nerve-impulse during its ordinary propagation along the nerve trunk, during the process, that is, of nerve trunk conduction. A highly activated set of psychons causes a large diffusion through the correlation centres, and vice versa.
