9781405177108: History of Psychology: Original Sources and Contemporary Research

The third edition of A History of Psychology is a highly readable compendium of primary source writings from the founders of psychology and works by more contemporary historians.

Coverage is universal and global – from Locke, Wundt and Skinner to modern scholars such as Henning Schmidgen, Sir Frederic C. Bartlett and George Mandler.



  • Introduces students to the philosophy and methods of historical research and writing, linking primary source readings with contemporary articles

  • Covers Applied Psychology, Clinical Psychology, and historical treatments of race and gender

  • Promotes History of Psychology as an active research specialty

  • A perfect compliment to Benjamin's Brief History of Modern Psychology

From the Back Cover:

A History of Psychology is a unique collection of readings that exposes students to primary source writings from key figures in the history of psychology (e.g., Locke, James, Watson, Leta Hollingworth) and to some of the best contemporary scholarship by active historians (e.g., Sokal, Leary, Milar, Fancher, Hornstein). With introductions written by Ludy T. Benjamin, Jr., a leading historian in the field, this book also provides students with an understanding of the philosophy and methods of historiography.


In the Third Edition, the author directly links the primary source readings with the contemporary research articles so that the two tell a complete and engaging story.
