Contemporary psychology is built on ideas, questions, and conjectures from numerous sources that date back, in the Western tradition, to ancient Greek philosophy.  This course focuses on key conceptual and methodological issues developed across the history of psychology and related disciplines.  Our historical explorations and investigations are guided by readings in B. R. Hergenhahn and Tracy Henley’s An Introduction to the History of Psychology.  Topics covered include questions about how ideas and hypotheses changed over time and shaped study of the mind, the brain, behavior, and mental illness.  We explore the history leading up to contemporary psychological thought and methodology from its origins in philosophy
* and the natural sciences through early 19th century schools of experimental psychology, diverse 20th century schools and systems (e.g., functionalism, structuralism, Gestalt, behaviorism, psychoanalysis, etc.), and the recent past (social psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, and evolutionary psychology).  Along the way, we find psychology considered as a discipline of the humanities, growing out of philosophy; a natural history; a social science; and a natural science.  Such diversity of views is reflected in psychology today.
