Theophrastus and the Greek Physiological Psychology before Aristotle
Theophrastus of Erosos - his original name was Tyrtamus, and it is thought that Aristotle gave him the nickname Theophrastus as a comment on his powers of conversation - succeeded Aristotle as the head of the Peripatetic school of Athens. This book on ancient Greek physiological psychology includes Stratton's essays on Theophrastus and the value of his work; the original Greek text and his own translation of De Sensibus, which had not previously been rendered in full into English; and extensive notes on the translation and text. It is a lucid and important work of scholarship and a significant contribution to the history of medicine and psychology.
George Malcolm Stratton (1865-1957) was a prominent social psychologist, professor, and served as President of the American Psychological Association in 1908.
