9780521371667: Metaphors in the History of Psychology (Cambridge Studies in the History of Psychology)

Metaphors in the History of Psychology describes and analyzes the ways in which psychological accounts of brain functioning, consciousness, cognition, emotion, motivation, learning, and behavior have been shaped--and are still being shaped--by the central metaphors used by contemporary psychologists and their predecessors. The contributors to this volume argue that psychologists and their predecessors have invariably turned to metaphor in order to articulate their descriptions, theories, and practical interventions with regard to psychological functioning. By specifying the major metaphors in the history of psychology, these contributors have offered a new "key" to understanding this critically important area of human knowledge. This theme has become an issue of central concern in a variety of disciplines ranging from linguistics and literary studies to cognitive science, psychology, and philosophy. Through the identification of these metaphors, the contributors to this volume have provided a remarkably useful guide to the history, current orientations, and future prospects of modern psychology.

Book Description:

Arguing that psychologists and their predecessors have invariably relied on metaphors in articulation, the contributors to this volume offer a new "key" to understanding a critically important area of human knowledge by specifying the major metaphors.

Review:

"...the book provides a very satisfying reading experience and opens up new thoughtways to be explored." Parker E. Lichtenstein, The Psychological Record

"This contribution gives us much food for thought and whets the appetite for more." Elizabeth Scarborough, Contemporary Psychology

"The editor and the contributors are to be heartily thanked for providing such an excellent springboard for those who follow later." Laurel Furumoto, Theory and Psychology

"I would recommend the book as a consciousness-raising device from which all historians could profit. Of course, philosophers and historians of science will discover much of specific pertinence to their fields." Hannah S. Decker, Central European History

"...a useful and significant collection of essays..." Journal of the History of the Behaioral Sciences
