(SAMPLE of a classmate for this discussion) I found Titchener’s books in the archives! COLLAPSE Since this discussion post was optional, I decided to see if I could find books in the archives written by Edward B. Titchener, in order to help fulfill my dream of reviving Structuralism. As it turns out, there are many books authored by Titchener in the archives! I have been reading his books, and have been finding treasures. I’m reading from A Primer of Psychology, Manual of Experimental Psychology, and The Outline of Psychology. All of these books were refered to in the paper I read for the peer-reviewed article assignment. I learned Titchener’s method when it comes to analysing sensation through introspection, and I discovered that I can use tuning forks to experiment with hearing musical tones. I hope to use the method I read and also use tuning forks to teach my students how to perceive tones and chords when they listen to music. Reading Titchener has been extremely useful and inspiring!
