Modern Psychology: A History Much can be said about the beginnings of psychology, especially in the nature of psychology entering the world stage as a formal discipline. Numerous famous psychologists and philosophers such as E.G. Boring and Hegel have attributed to the the thought patterns and initial research that have pushed psychology to the forefront as a science. It is perhaps their research that enabled this young science of nearly 125 years to be accepted and practiced as a formal science. Within this writing this author intends to give credit to those early philosophers and psychologists that established the roots of psychology, identify those major philosophers who contributed to the the formation of psychology as a discipline, and also to briefly explore the growth of psychology during the 19th century in order to provide further information on the use of psychology as a science. Philosophy and Psychology: A Beginning Psychology indeed can trace its early roots into philosophy. In fact, numerous philosophers such as Hegel and Descartes have posed important questions relating to the all- important question of what it means to be human.

    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.
