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. The Fourth Edition of Hergenhahn's best-selling text continues to provide students with a comprehensive view of the history of psychology by showing that most of the concerns of today's psychologists are manifestations of themes that have been a part of psychology for thousands of years.

About the Author:

A former chair of Hamline's psychology department at Hamline University, Dr. Hergenhahn has been awarded for excellence in teaching, has authored several widely adopted textbooks and numerous journal articles.

Review:

"I think (Hergenhahn) is clear, not overly burdened with jargon and it carries a sense of the "professor" talking to the "student."..."It is thorough and useful for courses that cover both the short history of psychology and the long past. It is well written and contains along with the necessary facts a lot of interesting materials that make the characters come alive. It appears to be a book that wishes to stay on the cutting edge of the market and that wins it a high rating in my book."

"I typically have a few students in each class who tell me how absorbing they found reading the book..."
