Unit 1: Study Guide

History and Approaches

The unit traces the emergence of scientific psychology in the nineteenth century from its roots in philosophy and physiology, and covers the development of the major “schools” of psychology, showing how these schools differed in what they viewed as the proper subject matter of psychology and the methods they used to study it. This historical introduction helps us gain an understanding of the primary approaches to psychology: Behavioral, Biological, Cognitive, Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Evolutionary/Sociobiological, and Sociocultural.
