Seven Pioneers of Psychology: Behaviour and Mind

Synopsis

In this exciting volume, six of the world's leading scholars write about the contribution made to our understanding of human behavior and the human mind by seven great figures of the last 100 years: Lorenz, Tinbergen, Skinner, Piaget, Freud, James and Galton. Their seminal work on ethology, behaviorism, child development, psychoanalysis, perception and heredity provides 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 it can be understood by anyone interested in the ideas of these major figures.
