From the Back Cover

A History of Psychology: Ideas and Context, Third Edition, is a comprehensive history of psychology tracing psychological thought from ancient times through late twentieth-century developments. The reader is presented with a framework for interpreting the pedagogy of philosophy through the development of historiography and philosophical problems in the opening chapters. The book gives in-depth coverage to the intellectual trends that preceded the formal founding of psychology, coupled with an analysis of the major classical systems of thought and the key developments in the history of basic and applied psychology. The final epilogue focuses on the major trends in psychology in the latter half of the twentieth century. Designed for anyone interested in the history of psychology, systems of psychology or systematic psychology.

The personal history and background of proto-psychologists, as well as the different approaches to psychology, are nicely presented here. What was of particular interest to me was the religious background of the various luminaries in the field.

The author said that when B. F. Skinner was a child he was threatened with burning in hell if he misbehaved and failed to follow the Good Book. King also pointed out that Pavlov's father was a poor Catholic priest, and, similarly, that Thorndike's father was a minister in the Methodist faith; that Watson's mother, as a member of the Southern Baptist church, had him promise her that he would take up the ministry upon reaching adulthood (though upon her death he failed to do so).

And as was the case with the fathers of Pavlov and Thorndike, Holt's father was a minister, too, but in the Congregational church; that Lashbley's mother was essentially of Calvinist royalty since she (and hence he) descended from the famed American Calvinist theologian Jonathan Edwards. King also mentioned that even Freud, with parents that practiced Judaism, studied Hebrew and Greek (among other languages), both languages of the Bible.

The book is very thorough. Glad I purchased it.

I minored in Psychology in undergrad where I used this book in my History and Systems class. The content is fascinating and well-written. It is printed in columnar format -- 2 columns on each page -- so it is a very easy read, like a magazine article. I enjoyed utilizing this book and referenced it often in my other psych courses.

I bought this text because the newest edition was required for a class and although the newer edition text was included with the class as an online book, I have always found the physical version of a book to be easier to read. History hasn't changed much since this edition was published and it worked just as well as the newer edition.

This text for my psychology class was just the right mix of thoroughness and appeal. Highly recommend it as it covers history topics in general and giants in the field of psychology in much detail.
