He systematically described the formation of the mind’s content from sensations, though he declared that this is not a passive process but involves an active capacity to form the content by suggestion. s. provided several generations of young men with an education at once directed to their morals and to their self-understanding. College principals, like Thomas C. Upham (1789–1872) at Bowdoin in Maine, who published The Elements of Mental Philosophy (1831), spread a notion of psychology as moral phil osophy.

For example, Adam Smith (1723–1790), then as now celebrated as the author of An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations (1776), professor of moral philosophy at the University of Glasgow, gave the central place in his account of human nature to sympathy, the individual capacity to feel what others feel. This, Smith thought, as well as being the cement of society, makes people intrinsically social beings. As Smith observed, other people are a kind of mirror to ourselves, and indeed he referred to the way we see and judge ourselves as involving our perception of an ideal ‘impartial spectator’.

By the late Victorian period, the very triteness of the messages was a mark of the extent to which a psychology bound up with the life of the body had become taken for granted.

Experimental physiology was one of the natural science disciplines to become specialist enterprises in the German universities in the decades of the 1830s and 1840s. Then and later in the nineteenth century, physiology seized the imagination of young people, fed up with old prejudices, as the route by which knowledge would finally become objective and true to real human nature.
