Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology by Gregory A. Kimble

Book Description

Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology, Volume V is the next book in the inspirational and informative series that profiles psychology's pioneers. Leading scholars write about the psychological pioneers who influenced their own areas of expertise. As with previous volumes, this one also traces the origins of the major currents in psychology--from behavioral genetics to conditioning and learning, from personality and psychotherapy to gender, politics, and race. Readers will learn about the "giants" of the major schools of psychological thought--structuralism, psychoanalysis, behaviorism, functionalism, and Gestalt theory--and trace the cross-fertilization of ideas across schools and disciplines. Volume V features 20 pioneers who include G. Stanley Hall, Margaret Floy Washburn, William McDougall, Kurt Goldstein, June Etta Downey, and Frederick M. Lord. The Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology series promotes the outstanding but sometimes neglected contributions of groundbreaking early psychologists. Through the examination of individuals' lives and work, readers will learn about specific schools, fields, and perspectives in psychology and gain an appreciation of how psychology has evolved in both methodology and focus. Presented in non-academic and colloquial styles, this series is ideal for the classroom or academic reference.
