History and Systems of Psychology (7th Ed.)

Langue : Anglais

Auteurs :

Couverture de l’ouvrage History and Systems of Psychology
History and Systems of Psychology provides an engaging introduction to the rich story of psychology's past. Retaining the clarity and accessibility praised by readers of earlier editions, this classic textbook provides a chronological history of psychology from the pre-Socratic Greeks to contemporary systems, research, and applications. The new edition also features expanded coverage of Eastern as well as Western traditions, influential women in psychology, professional psychology in clinical, educational, and social settings, and new directions in twenty-first century psychology as a cognitive and a positive science. Assuming little prerequisite knowledge, the authors discuss the people, places, and concepts that have shaped psychology's story, and show that we remain fascinated by the same enduring questions that confronted our ancestors - namely, our wonder at our subjectivity and consciousness of self. The seventh edition is fully supported by robust pedagogical features, instructor resources, and a companion website to aid student learning.

James F. Brennan served seven years as Provost of the Catholic University of America, Washington DC, rejoining the faculty as Professor of Psychology in 2014. He has held academic, administrative and faculty positions at a number of universities, continuing a program of empirical research focused on drug actions in hearing pathologies. His interest in psychology's history stems from his doctoral minor concentration, mainly through Kent State University's School of Library Sciences.
Keith A. Houde is Associate Professor of Psychology and Chair of the Department of Psychology at Ave Maria University, Florida. He previously worked as Clinical Psychologist within a Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Maine, including service as Psychology Training Director for a predoctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship program. With an academic background in psychology and theology, his interest in the history of psychology flows from a fascination with theories of human nature throughout the history of thought.
