To simplify Gestalt psychology to a single statement, one might say
this school of thought is concerned with the whole rather than parts. Gestalt psychologists studied how sensation differs from perception, and also how "insight learning" seemed to differ from trial-and-error learning. Remember that we are discussing Gestalt psychology, and not Gestalt therapy, in these questions.
-Discuss the idea of "wholeness" from a Gestalt perspective, using either human perception or human learning to provide at least two examples that show the importance of the whole.
-Was Gestalt psychology in accord with behaviorism? What might a discussion between a Gestaltist and a behaviorist sound like about a topic such as consciousness or learning?Explain all of the above bullet points. Prefered Reference book "The story of Psychology by Morton Hunt(2007)" chapter 10. If any other resources used in writing do not forget to add in references with sources. Thank you!
