Summary

There are many fine scripts of quantum chemistry and physicsin print at this time. So the question can be raised as to whywe would write another script, especially one focusing on thesmaller discipline of quantum chemistry. When we began thisproject years ago, we felt that we were a unique juncture inquantum chemistry and technology and that, immodestly, wehad a unique perspective to offer to students. Much of the mainstream of quantum chemistry is now deeplytied to quantum physics, in a cooperative endeavor called"quantum science." At the same time, there is a large, growing,and vital community of people who use the applications ofquantum chemistry to tackle wide-ranging set of problems inthe biological, physical and environmental sciences, engineering,medicine and so on. We thought it was important to bring together, in a singlevolume, a rigorous, detailed perspective on both the "pure" and"applied" aspects of quantum chemistry. As such, one mightfind more detail about any particular subject than one mightlike. We hope this encourages instructors to summarize thescript material and present it in a manner most suitable to aparticular audience. The amount of material contained in thisbook is too much for a one quarter or one semester courseand a bit too little for a yearlong course. Instructors can pickand choose which material seems most suitable for their course. We have attempted to present quantum chemistry and theassociated applications at a level suitable for an advancedundergraduate or beginning graduate student. We haveassumed that a student has prior or concurrent instruction inphysical chemistry or modern physics and has some skills inhandling differential equations. Our sincere effort in this regardwas to spread the solved problems all over this text and thathas a lot to do without belief that the best way to learn is byworking out problems. The thought provoking homeworkproblems are largely examination questions used at variousUniversity. They should be considered to be integral part of thescript as they are intended to illustrate or amplify the mainpoints of each chapter. We have taken some pains to usequantum mechanics in a schematic way, that is, to use theconclusions of such considerations without using or demandinga complete, rigorous, approach. The use of hand-wavingquantum mechanics, we believe, is appropriate for our generalaudience. We summarize, in the appendices, some salientfeatures of quantum mechanics that may be useful for thosestudents with limited backgrounds. Our aim is to convey theblend of theory and experiment as well as that of the essenceof the ideas and the that characterizes nuclear and quantumchemistry. We have included some more advanced material forthose who would like a deeper immersion in the subject. Our hope is that the reader can use this book for anintroductory treatment of the subject of interest and can usethe end-of-chapter bibliography as a guide to more advancedand detailed presentations. We also hope that new and buddingscientists of the future might see this volume as a refreshercourse for sharpening the memory regarding the rudiments ofsomewhat not-so-popular relatively unfamiliar aspects of nuclearand radiochemistry and as an information booth for directionsfor more detailed inquiries.

    Jung’s lectures on the history of psychology—in English for the first time 
    Between 1933 and 1941, C. G. Jung delivered a series of public lectures at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich. Intended for a general audience, these lectures addressed a broad range of topics, from dream analysis to yoga and meditation. Here for the first time in English are Jung’s lectures on the history of modern psychology from the Enlightenment to his own time, delivered in the fall and winter of 1933–34. 
    In these inaugural lectures, Jung emphasizes the development of concepts of the unconscious and offers a comparative study of movements in French, German, British, and American thought. He also gives detailed analyses of Justinus Kerner’s The Seeress of Prevorst and Théodore Flournoy’s From India to the Planet Mars. These lectures present the history of psychology from the perspective of one of the field’s most legendary figures. They provide a unique opportunity to encounter Jung speaking for specialists and nonspecialists alike and are the primary source for understanding his late work. 
    Featuring cross-references to the Jung canon and explanations of concepts and terminology, History of Modern Psychology painstakingly reconstructs and translates these lectures from manuscripts, summaries, and recently recovered shorthand notes of attendees. It is the first volume of a series that will make the ETH lectures available in their entirety to English readers.
