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 modem
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.
