Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology - Vol. 3

By Gregory A. Kimble; Michael C. Wertheimer | Go to book overview

Preface

The chapters in this book, like those in the two previous volumes in this series, present informal portraits of some of the giants in the history of psychology. The individual chapters offer glimpses into the personal and the scholarly/professional lives of these pioneers. As in the previous volumes, most of the chapter authors are experts in the same fields as those of their pioneers, are students of the history of psychology, or both.

The references to Pioneers I and Pioneers II throughout this book are to Volumes 1 and 2 of Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology ( Kimble, Wertheimer, & White, 1991; Kimble, Boneau, & Wertheimer, 1996). One difference between this volume and the others is that almost all of the chapters in the first two volumes were revisions of papers presented at psychological association conventions. That is true of only two chapters in the present volume--chapter 10, on Duncker and chapter 17, on Spence.

All three volumes will be of interest to psychologists generally and to scholars in related fields. The resourceful teacher could use a selection of chapters from these volumes as supplementary readings to enhance almost any course in the discipline, as well as courses in related disciplines, such as anthropology, biology, and sociology. The major purpose of Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology, however, is to provide source materials for students and their teachers in undergraduate and graduate courses in the history of psychology. The most obvious use is in history of psychology courses, but they could also be used to help make the pioneers in the various subfields of psychology come more vividly alive for students and teachers in other standard courses in the psychology curriculum.

As stated earlier, the references to Pioneers I and Pioneers II throughout this book are to Volumes I and II in the series. Listed next are some of the chapters that are available in the three volumes. They are organized in a way that matches the categories that are apt to correspond to widely offered courses and major topics in course syllabi. Chapters in Pioneers I are separated from those in Pioneers II by a single slanting line (/); those in Pioneers II are separated from those in Pioneers III by a double slanting line (//):

Schools and systems: Carr, Freud, Heidbreder, Hull, James, Jung, Köhler, Pavlov, Sullivan, Titchener, Tolman, Watson, Wertheimer/ Dewey, Guthrie, Sechenov // Duncker, Hickok, Lewin, Piaget, Rogers, Skinner, Spence, Wundt

Biological (Physiological) Psychology: Galton, Hunter, Lashley, Pavlov, Tryon/ Burks, Graham, Hebb, Schiller, Yerkes// Darwin, Festinger, Krech, Kuo, McGraw, Nissen
