Summary:
"The end and aim of the study of hearing is to explain it. The study of hearing therefore begins with the statements of the facts of hearing and their connections. These are wholly and solely matters of experience; they are psychical. For hearing means experiencing. A clear statement of these facts will call up in the mind of the thinking reader similar facts and connections from other departments of experience, especially from the fellow processes of hearing,--the other senses. And here again these facts will be wholly and solely psychical. Where the facts of hearing cannot be observed or have not yet been successfully observed, the study of hearing will feel impelled to draw upon its knowledge of the other senses and so to form a complete statement of the facts of hearing that shall at least be most probably true. Thus far the study of hearing belongs to the science of psychology"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
