Readers will learn about the fascinating individuals who helped create and shape the field of psychology. Without ignoring philosophical roots, this book devotes more space to recent history of psychology, especially the past 150 years. Its treatment of philosophy begins in the general vicinity of Descartes and the British Empiricists. Readers will also discover how these historical figures have dealt with the same type of problems that psychologists face today.
