Overview

The enhanced 4th Edition of Goodwin's series, A History of Modern Psychology, explores the modern history of psychology including the fundamental bases of psychology and psychology's advancements in the 20th century. Goodwin, Ph.D. in experimental psychology, has a true passion for the history of experimental psychology. Strengths of the text include his conversational writing style and attention to recent scholarship in the history of psychology. Goodwin's 4th Edition focuses on the reduction of biographical information with an emphasis on more substantial information including ideas and concepts and on ideas/research contributions; more history on the applied areas of psychology; condensed chapters, philosophical antecedents and physiological antecedents; and more psychology's history in the 20th century.
