Summary

Dreams puzzled early man, Greek philosophers spun elaborate theories to explain human memory and perception, Descartes postulated that the brain was filled with "animal spirits," and psychology was officially deemed a "science" in the 19th century. The Fourth Edition of Hergenhahn's best-selling text continues to provide students with a comprehensive view of the history of psychology by showing that most of the concerns of today's psychologists are manifestations of themes that have been a part of psychology for thousands of years.
