Psychology (3rd ed).

In this course, we review and discuss the historical development of
central problems in experimental psychology.  The emphasis is placed
on the two dominant problem areas, perception and learning.  We begin
with the ancient Greeks and then move rapidly through the beginning of
modern science and the philosophers of the 16th-19th centuries to a
review of the major approaches including Structuralism, Functionalism,
Behaviorism, Gestalt Psychology, Cognitivism and Ecological
Psychology.
