It then traces the Classical, medieval, and early modern periods to present day psychology. The text covers scientific, applied, and professional psychology. Although theoretical and empirical arguments inside psychology about the nature of mind and behavior are not neglected,A History of Psychologyshows how psychology’s development has been shaped by social, economic, and political forces external to it, and, in turn, how the mature psychology of the late 20thcentury has begun to shape the society in which it arose. The text carefully examines how issues in psychology reflect and affect concepts that lie outside the technical concerns of psychology as a science and profession.   Learning GoalsUpon completing this text, readers will be able to:Know the events in the history of scientific, applied, and professional psychologyUnderstand how psychology’s development was shaped by external forcesDescribe how psychology has and continues to shape societyNote:MySearchLab does not come automatically packaged with this text.
