For advanced undergraduate History of Psychology courses; also appropriate for graduate-level seminar courses in the discipline. Comprehensive and engaging in subject matter, this text integrates materials from religion (Judaism, Christianity, and Muslim as well as Buddhism and Confucianism), philosophy, and biology into the historical development of psychology. It includes a treatment of issues in the local and global society, an extensive look at women and minorities, and integrates overarching psychological principles, ideas, and applications that have shaped and will shape the global history of psychology. It highlights the interaction between psychology and the environmental context in which the discipline developed.
