PY 4100 - History and Systems in Psychology

The intellectual history of contemporary psychology is traced in light of positions taken on a number of fundamental philosophical and psychological questions. The course delineates psychology’s emergence as a science and a discipline separate from physiology and philosophy and chronicles its liberation from all-encompassing theoretical systems into the less restrictive organizing constructions found today. While the focus is on the historical development of a science, psychology’s history as an applied profession is examined too.

Prerequisite: At least nine hours of upper-division credit in psychology.
