The story of psychology: a thematic history
This new textbook for the history of psychology course is by a distinguished researcher who has taught the course for many years. Bolles tells an intriguing story of the history of psychology in a casual, relaxed fashion. He cites philosophers mainly to develop certain themes (atomism, mechanism, empiricism, and associationism) and to help students understand what science is. His story is sometimes dramatic and sad, and sometimes amusing, and he ties it all together with wisdom and humor.
