The approach to theory and history adapted by the contributors is to focus on some of the central figures in the development of discipline. Within this approach, the authors offer analyses of 3 major theoretical currents in psychology: psychoanalysis, behaviorism, and the Geneva school. Other chapters focus on psychophysics and on Gestalt, cognitive, and evolutionary psychology. The text covers such influences as G. T. Fechner, G. E. Muller, W. Wundt, F. Galton, James, Darwin, J. M. Baldwin, and Vygotsky and such topics as the Americanization of psychology and psychoanalysis, the relationship between politics and psychology in the US, and the contrasting development of the concept of the self in Western and Eastern psychology, and reprints chapters originally contributed by B. F. Skinner and Jean Piaget. It provides the reader with a broad overview of the development of a continually evolving field, one that has had an influence on the thought and culture of the 20th century.
