Selected Works, Edited under the Supervision of Kh. S. Koshtoyants. Second impression

By Pavlov, I. P.

Moscow: Foreign Languages Publishing House, Undated; postwar. 662p., illustrated with frontis portrait of the gentleman and a couple diagrams, hardcover in 8x5 inch in khaki cloth boards titled in salmon pink and pale green. A completely sound copy with a few muddy smudges to covers, endsheets a little toned, text leaves unblemished, good to very good. We've combed the terminal footnotes section for Pavlov's off-the-cuff appraisal of rivals and contemporaries (as jotted down by his students); he is merely on simmer with Yerkes' work with apes, with John Locke's notion of inborn ideas, and even with Mary Becker-Eddie [sic]; when it comes to Henri Bergson, a mere "reactionary French philosopher-idealist. Gestalt psychology is a "reactionary trend." Spengler of course is a reactionary.
