This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ... which would not have occurred to me if I had not tried to record my train of thought, nevertheless the result was a number of mental images of various kinds which, I believe, showed the tendency, at any rate the possibilities of my mind at that particular time. And, after recording many sights, a few sounds, etc., even if I did think to myself, " Suppose you have a few smells, tastes and touches occur to you," I believe, even so, that shows, as well as anything else, the quality of the mental imagery that I may have. It seems again to be a matter of total indifference whether the lists be made out in entire isolation or not. If I do see or hear distracting things while writing the list, all that is necessary is to put down words descriptive not of the sensation, but of the mental images. If the 'thought stream' be all sensation and no mental images, then wait until mental imagery begins again and observe that alone. Here is a sample of the blanks as I fill them out myself: 12/30/97//11.08 A M 4yA min. 5 balks1 V 3 7 (visual) OR 1 (organic) M 1 (motor) W 9 (words only) OL 1 (olfactory) A 1 (auditory).
