Overview

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.
