Editorial Reviews

"The authors successfully trace the origins of ideas in psychology, from their roots in ancient thought to modern day schools of thought. I believe this text promotes a more integrative way of thinking about the history of psychology." - Rebecca Foushee, Fontbonne University   "The chronological approach is straightforward and accessible to students." - Matthew Isaak, University of Louisiana at Lafayette   "[A Hisory of Psychology] helps students examine their own beliefs. It is easy to apply the concepts in the early chapters to relevant, pressing issues affecting science and Psychology." - John Shelley-Tremblay, University of South Alabama
