Overview:
 

What is psychology? When did it begin? Where did it come from? How does psychology compare with psychiatry and psychotherapy? Is it scientific?

Introducing Psychology answers all these intriguing questions and more, explaining what the subject has been in the past and what it is now.

Nigel C. Benson skilfully explains the main schools of thought and the sections within psychology, including Introspection, Bio-psychology, Psychoanalysis, Behaviourism, Comparative (Animal) Psychology, Cognitive Approaches (such as the Gestalt movement), Social Psychology, Developmental Psychology and Humanism. The key figures covered include Freud, Pavlov, Skinner, Bandura, Piaget, Bowlby, Maslow and Rogers, as well as many lesser-known but important psychologists.

This book is a fascinating guide to the whole subject of psychology – an ideal introduction for anyone interested in why we do what we do and think what we think.
