9780132438490: A History of Psychology: From Antiquity To Modernity, 7th Edition

Provides a narrative history of psychology. A History of Psychology: From Antiquity to Modernity begins tracking psychology from the development of folk psychology as the key adaptation of humans at the dawn of history. It then traces the Classical, medieval, and early modern periods to present day psychology. The text covers scientific, applied, and professional psychology.

Although theoretical and empirical arguments inside psychology about the nature of mind and behavior are not neglected, A History of Psychology shows how psychology's development has been shaped by social, economic, and political forces external to it, and, in turn, how the mature psychology of the late 20th century has begun to shape the society in which it arose. The text carefully examines how issues in psychology reflect and affect concepts that lie outside the technical concerns of psychology as a science and profession.

Upon completing this text, readers will be able to:

  • Know the events in the history of scientific, applied, and professional psychology
  • Understand how psychology,s development was shaped by external forces
  • Describe how psychology has and continues to shape society

From the Publisher:

Offering a lively and critical look at psychology's past, this complete narrative history -- from the Ancient Greeks to the present -- explores psychology in its philosophical, religious, historical, and literary contexts.

From the Back Cover:

By way of a narrative history, this book critically explores the evolution of psychology from the Ancient Greeks to the present, in its philosophical, religious, historical, and literary contexts. The book introduces and develops three psychological and sociological themes. One is the idea that not only is psychology necessarily a social construction but that the mind itself is to some degree a social construction. The second them involves struggles over the existence and nature of consciousness. The third is the theme of psychology as an applied discipline. This book is appropriate for anyone who is interested in critically exploring the evolution of psychology from its origins to the present.
