Section: A

CRN: 6959

Credits: 3

Great moments in modern psychological research and discovery stand upon a mountain of historical roots. This course describes and interprets those roots and their cultural contexts. It traces the development of differing systems of thought and the clashes between those systems. It reviews the tangled rise of modern psychology and gives samples of the detective work that expose some of this field's origin myths. The course is in three parts: the classical roots, the 19th-century boom, and the 20th-century bust.
