What People are Saying About This

J. E. R. Staddon

John Malone has written a splendid book! A lively, readable and vigorous defense of history. It is covers a wide sweep from the early Greeks through Roman and Christian philosophy and the Enlightenment to modern developments such as cognitivism and behaviorism. It is both informative and critical, full of aperçus that clobber their targets with force and grace. I hope that Malone's book may do for psychology what Bertrand Russell's historical opus did for philosophy. Read it.

William M. Baum

Malone has put together a comprehensive overview of psychology that is unmatched. It integrates thought about behavior from the Greeks to the present. This readable and authoritative book is a must for anyone interested in the history of psychology. It will make an excellent textbook and a sourcebook for scholars.
