Psyche and the Literary Muses : The Contribution of Literary Content to Scientific Psychology
By: Martin S. Lindauer [College at Brockport emeritus].
Psyche and the Literary Muses focuses on the psychology of literature from an empirical point of view, rather than the more typical psychoanalytic position, and concentrates on literary content rather than readers or writers. The book centers on the author's quantitative studies of brief literary and quasi-literary forms, ranging from titles of short stories and names of literary characters to cliches and quotations from literary sources, in demonstrating their contribution to the topics of learning, perception, thinking, emotions, creativity, and especially person perception and aging.
