Bibliography

The dissemination of Hartley's doctrines was aided by his enthusiastic admirer and younger contemporary, the scientist Joseph Priestley. Priestley published an abridged version of the Observations under the title Hartley's Theory of the Human Mind on the Principle of Association of Ideas (London: J. Johnson, 1775). While Priestley omitted the theory of vibrations, it is said that he was inclined to believe in it. Hartley is also the author of an Enquiry into the Origin of the Human Appetites and Affections (Lincoln, England, 1747). See also G. S. Brett, A History of Psychology, 3 vols. (London: G. Allen, 1912–1921), Vol. II, pp. 278–286, and Howard C. Warren, A History of the Association Psychology (New York: Scribners, 1921), pp. 50–64.
