Perspectives Paper 2 Without Tolman, Watson, and Skinner and their wonderful contributions they have made in psychology what we call psychology today wouldn’t be the same. They are a big influence on the field of psychology and the development their perspectives of each of these three amazing psychologists are going to be compared in this paper. Tolman grew up in a middle-class family where his brother and him both attended higher educations in which their parents didn’t approve of Tolman wanted to be a philosopher this was his life long dream and he even went to summer school after he graduated. In summer school he studied psychology and philosophy. Tolman changed his career path when he met William Jones and he influenced Tolman to go another route. While in summer school Tolman thought he didn’t have adequate education to study philosophy and changed his major to psychology instead. Tolman became an instructor in Berkeley and this is the job he kept the rest of his life. Tolman was also married as well and very happy with his wife. The contributions Tolman made in psychology were the development of cognitive learning theory in which he planned and constructed more while at Berkeley. Tolmans experiments arosed from thoughts, small insights, responses and relations to an individuals environment. To further learn his theories and thoughts Tolman experiments with rats.

    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.
