An Introduction to the History of Psychology
Dreams puzzled early man. Greek philosophers spun elaborate theories to explain human memory and perception. Descartes postulated that the brain was filled with "animal spirits." And psychology was officially deemed a "science" in the 19th century. In An Introduction to the History of Psychology, Third Edition, B. R. Hergenhahn shows how many of today's ideas about human psychology were shaped by what came before.
