This text, appropriate for upper level courses, is a historical overview of the development of modern psychology in the last 100 years to the present day. A History of Modern Psychology covers the rise and fall of the schools of psychological thought in terms of philosophy and physiology, the impact of intellectual, social, economic, and political forces on the discipline, and the contributions of significant individuals. Features: * Shows how ideas, theories and movements evolved and revolted against earlier work and developed independently. * Discusses the impact of contextual forces, such as the intellectual climate (Zeitgeist), the social and economic forces, wars, and prejudice and discrimination. * Introduces the lives of important scholars, researchers, writers, teachers, and systematizers in the history of psychology, noting how their work was influenced by the times as well as their own experiences. * Traces the development of animal psychology, particularly the changing views of the nature of animal consciousness and the accepted methods for studying the problem. New to this edition: * A new chapter on race and gender issues has been added and additional notes on the contributions of black and women psychologists are found throughout the book. * Language has been clarified and topics have been added, expanded, or revised based on the latest biographical sources and scholarly research. * The discussion of machines as a metaphor for human psychological, mental, and cognitive functioning has been expanded to include medical and mechanical engineering and the computer.
