Description

In this exciting new volume, six of the world's leading scholars write about the contribution made to our understanding of human behaviour and the human mind by seven great figures of the last 100 years: Lorenz and Tinbergen, Skinner, Piaget, Freud, James and Galton. Their seminal work on ethology, behaviourism, child development, psychoanalysis, perception and heredity provide the basis for much of today's psychological thinking and research. An account of the thought of each key figure is given together with a brief biography. Each contribution is written so that is can be understood by anyone interested in ideas of these major figures. Based on a series of lectures given at Trinity College, Dublin, Seven Pioneers of Psychology provides a clear, accessible and extremely readable account of seven of the great pioneers in exploring the human condition.
