"Psychology: The Briefer Course" was published in 1892 as an abridgment of William James's 1200 page "Principles of Psychology." Both books were influential in their own time and are now considered classics in the history of psychology. "The Briefer Course" explores topics ranging from consciousness to perception to emotion and more. It's also available online for free. Visit the Internet Archive to download and read the book, available in a variety of formats including PDF, ePUB, and Kindle.

In psychology research, one of the most basic ways to determine if one variable causes a change in another variable is to perform a simple experiment. A simple experiment utilizes a control group of participants who receive no treatment and an experimental group of participants who receive the treatment. Experimenters then compare the results of the two groups to determine if the treatment had an effect.

Learn more in this overview of a simple experiment.
The simple experiment is one of the most basic methods of determining if there is a cause-and-effect relationship between two variables. Find more information on the parts of a simple experiment and how results are measured.
