Abstract

Students in advanced psychology are not adequately grounded in the fundamental principles of color. This is due in part to loose terminology of color concepts, and partly to the failure of instructors to make clear the exact nature of results obtained from mixing colored pigments as compared with mixing colored lights. Even among authorities in the field there is a tendency to fit experimental data to pre-existing theories, a practice which does not help make the facts clear to a beginning student of color who reads widely. More recently Munsell (8) has developed a very excellent system of color nomenclature which is most too complicated for the average textbooks in beginning psychology. The hypothesis is posed that there are no major conflicts in theory and application of colors if all the concepts are properly defined and understood.
