PSYCH 400 - History and Systems in Psychology


Since ancient times philosophers have speculated about the origins of human thought and behavior. On the one side were those philosophers who argued that human thought and action are innate others argued that there is no thought or action that does not have its origin in experience. This course will look at the historical development and modern resolutions of this nature versus nurture controversy and many other debates that have formed the science of psychology. In addition to the usual look at Structuralism, Functionalism, Gestalt, Behaviorism and other major schools and systems, this course will also look at the contribution of Imhotep and other great Africans to the history of psychology. Prerequisites: PSYCH 325 , PSYCH 330  and PSYCH 339 . (3)
