In 1856 he began to teach, and was admitted to the École Normale Supérieure in 1862. En 1885 he gave a course of lectures on experimental psychology at the Sorbonne, y en 1888 was appointed professor of that subject at the College of France. His thesis for his doctors' degree, republished in 1882, Hérédité: étude psychologique (5ª ed., 1889), was his most important and best known book. Following the experimental and synthetic methods, he brought together a large number of instances of inherited peculiarities. He paid particular attention to the physical element of mental life, ignoring all spiritual or nonmaterial factors in man. In his work on La Psychologie anglaise contemporaine (1870), he showed his sympathy with the sensationalist school, and again in his translation of Herbert Spencer's Principles of Psychology. Besides numerous articles, he wrote on Schopenhauer, Philosophie de Schopenhauer (1874; 7ª ed., 1896), and on the contemporary psychology of Germany (La Psychologie allemande contemporaine, 1879; 13ª ed., 1898), also four little monographs on Les Maladies de la mémoire (1881; x3th ed., 1898); De la volonté (1883; 14ª ed., 1899); De la personnalité (1885; 8ª ed., 1899); and La Psychologie de l'attention (1888), which supplied useful data to the study of mental disease. Other works by him are: La Psychologie des sentiments (1896) L'Evolution des idées genérales (1897) Essai sur l'imagination créatrice (1900) La Logique des sentiments (1904) Essai sur les passions (1906) Of the above the following have been translated into English: English Psychology (1873) Heredity: a Psychological Study of its Phenomena, Laws, Causas, and Consequences (1875) Diseases of Memory: An Essay in the Positive Psychology (1882) Diseases of the Will (Nueva York, 1884) German Psychology of to-day, Tr.
