Most students of psychology today have little understanding of all the theories and world views their discipline championed in earlier decades. They are unaware of the philosophical underpinning of their work and the relatively new establishment of the field as a science. The History of Psychology in Context allows students to understand the history of the discipline, including its origins in philosophy and emergence as a science, while considering the impact of social and cultural factors on the development of the discipline.
