Recent Soviet Psychology attempts to discuss previous approaches to Russian psychological literature on the part of English-speaking specialists, Russian attitudes to their own psychology, and the fields of interest of Russian psychology as represented in this compendium. This collection is divided into three sections. The main themes covered by these sections are physiology, speech, and education. In the section dealing with physiology, topics such as the typological properties and psychological manifestations of the nervous system are examined. Other topics in this section include conditioned reflex, sense of touch, image in touch, sensitivity, and sensory memory. The last two sections are devoted to discussing voluntary movements; study and investigation of speech, speech problems, and thought; and learning. This text will be invaluable to those interested in Soviet psychology, as well as to psychology students and experts.
