Psychological ideas originated in ancient philosophy, but psychology entered the realm of science just over a century ago with applications to help people shortly afterward. History, Perspectives, and Applications traces the path of psychology through philosophy and biology into a vibrant discipline that deals with the process of development, socialization, learning, abnormal behavior, and cultural influences. Throughout psychology's history, there has been a constant interplay between social forces and psychological theories. Written in engaging and accessible prose by experts in the field, this new, full-color resource is perfect for anyone interested in this fascinating field of study.
