HISTORY OF PSYCHOLOGY LECTURE STUDY QUESTIONS (Bring them to class so you can make notes) I will number the lecture study questions consecutively L1, L2, … . I will not tie the questions to particular lectures; however, the order of the lecture study questions will generally, but not always, follow the order of material covered in lecture. It may be helpful to consult the Glossaries and the Subject Index in the text for extra information. L. 1. There are a lot of systems of thought that involve the subject “psychology." Our course will be a history of what kind of psychology? ( Answer: Academic psychology, what’s taught in Universities as psychology’ in most countries) L. 2. What was the essence of Ebbinghaus' quote, "psychology has a short history and a long past:"? What event marked the separation between the history and the past of psychology? Hint: Look up Wundt. L.3. What is the main difference in the sorts of psychological laws that were sought by the early German psychologists and the early English psychologists? Hint: What is the essential difference between “normative psychology” and “differential psychology?” (slide #9) L. 4. The pre-Socratic philosophers worried about the ultimate building blocks of the universe. Thales thought it was water; Heraclitus thought it was fire; Empedocles thought there were four basic types (air, earth, fire, water); Democritus thought there were a variety of irreducible atoms, etc., etc. All this work inspired the perspectives of "naturalism." What are the basic implications of this for psychology? ( Hint : Can mind and body be thought of separate levels of existence in this perspective?).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
