Ideal for teaching students about the development of psychology as an empirical science (TOPSS Content Standard 6), this brief but thorough guide examines the contributions of scores of psychologists and psychological thinkers.
From the origins of psychological thought in the writings of ancient philosophers, to the work of William James and Wilhelm Wundt in the 19th century, to the seminal contributions of Freud and Jung, to the rise of behaviorism, to modern developments in the field (including the growing influence of neuroscience), the book offers a fascinating overview both of how the science of psychology has evolved and the impact psychological ideas have had on people’s views of themselves and society.
