The book covers the basic aspects of the human psyche. It defines general psychology and its status within psychological sciences, presents basic methods for identifying and evaluating mental manifestations and functions. It recognizes that psyche is based in a physical organ, one that allows for its development and influences its functioning, the brain. One of the reviews clearly states that this work is "unique primarily for its emphasis on the biological context of mental processes, which represents their functional basis.”
The book is innovative in emphasizing that psyche is based in a physical organ, addressing the changes in the covered mental functions in different age periods and providing a synoptic characteristics of various concepts related to these topics without disrupting the main line of exposition. Theoretical sections are followed by practical examples and supplemented by charts and other illustrations. An extensive list of psychological literature referring general psychology as well as specific disciplines forms an independent section.
