    In describing the ten years' developments in Chinese psychology, the authors have divided the whole decade into three main periods. The brief descriptions of these, three periods are as follows: The preliminary efforts of the first period (1949—1952) in washing off the academical thoughts of bourgeois psychology were ended in victory, and the policies concerning the reformation and reconstruction of psychology upon the basis of Marxism and Parlov's theory were firmly established. In the second period (1952—71957) in accordance with the policies, the reformation and rebuilding of psychology were actually tested for the first time, and the plans for the development of psychology were also made. The third period (1957—1959) has been characterized with the thoroughful scholarstic disputes in psychological problems, the close alliance of psychological practice with the Socialistic reconstruction and a great advancement on the road of active reconstruction of psychology upon the dialectic Materialism. The authors have especially pointed to the fact that, the Chinese Communist Party and the People's Government regard psychology as an important subiect of study, thereby supporting enthusiastically the work of Chinese psychologists, that the experiences of Soviet psychologists in establishing the materialistic psychology have had a positive influence on the development of psychology in China, and hat the unanimous efforts of Chinese psychological workers have resulted in a preliminary, yet a triumphant success. Finally, the directions of the future developments of psychology in China are also pointed out.
