ABSTRACT
The article presents information about the book "Love and Hate in Human Nature," by Arnold A. Hutschnecker. Psychology in a historical sense is scarcely a novelty, although Dr. Hutschnecker seems to share the conviction of many that some particular value is attached to an idea by way of its having been recently developed, or come upon. Systematic psychology is a late nineteenth century development. If Hutschnecker is not to be depended on for his knowledge of animal behavior, and if his comparisons verge on the extreme, his insight into particular examples of human behavior also leaves a good deal to be desired.

    Historically, episodic memory has been described as autonoetic, personally relevant, complex, context-rich, and allowing mental time travel. In contrast, semantic memory, which is theorized to be free of context and personal relevance, is noetic and consists of general knowledge of facts about...
