Important People in the
Dev’t. of Psychology
 Aristotle (384 –322 BC) – He made assumptions
 out of observation regarding human behavior. He
 believed that all beings, humans included, have
 souls, which animate them. Humans, however,
 compared to other animal, have rational souls.
 Thus, humans are not only, physical, but also
 rational. He also theorized about learning,
 memory, motivation, emotion, perception and
 personality.
Important People in the
 Dev’t. of Psychology
Rene Descartes
 (1596 – 1650) - supported the
 view that humans enter the
 world with an inborn store of
 knowledge. He argued that
 some ideas (such as God, the
 self, perfection and infinity) are
 innate. He is also notable for
 his conception of the body as
 a machine that can be studied.
Important People in the
Dev’t. of Psychology
John Locke
 (1632–1704) - Believed
 that at birth the human
 mind is a “tabula rasa”
 or a blank slate, on
 which experience
 “writes” knowledge.
Important People in the
Dev’t. of Psychology

 Charles Darwin
 (1809 – 1882) - He is the
 author of the Law of
 Natural Selection or
 Theory of Evolution;
 inspired the Psychological
 school of thought,

 Physicians who started experimenting with behavior
 through scientific methodologies.

Wilhelm Wundt – Considered as the “Father of
 Modern Psychology.” He established the first
 experimental laboratory for the study of Psychology,
 in Leipzig, Germany, 1879. He created a machine
 that measured the time lag between people’s
 hearing a ball hit the platform and their pressing a
 telegraph key. Wundt has seeking to measure the
 “atoms of the mind” – the fastest and simplest
 mental processes.

Schools of Thought


1. Structuralism (Edward Titchener) – Study of the
  parts   of     conscious  experiences    through
  introspection.
 Conscious experiences are composed of sensations,
 feelings, and images.
 Introspection is a process of studying the self, or self-
 examination. Introduced by St. Thomas of Aquinas.
Schools of Thought

2. Functionalism
  (William James) – Defines
  behavior or the mental
  phenomena in terms of their
  functions in man’s adjustment
  to his environment. It is very
  much influenced by Darwin’s
  Theory of Evolution.
Schools of Thought
3. Gestalt Psychology
  (Max Wertheimer, Wolfgang Kohler, Kurt Koffka)
  Believed that the human mind imposes meaning to
  related experiences. It advocates that the study of
  human behavior should be wholistic. “The whole is
  greater than the sum of its parts.”
Schools of Thought

4. Behaviorism
  (John B. Watson)
  Emphasized the need to
  study what is observable.
  Its objective was to predict
  and control behavior.
  S-R Psychology.
Schools of Thought

5. Psychoanalysis
  (Sigmund Freud) – Much of
  our behavior is governed by
  unconscious motive and
  primitive biological instincts. It
  considered       all     humans
  basically would like to gain
  pleasure and avoid pain.
Contemporary Approaches
   Neuroscience - Views behavior from the
    perspective of biological functioning

   Psychodynamic - Believes behavior is
    motivated by inner, unconscious force
    over which a person has little control
Contemporary Approaches
   Behavioral - Focuses on observable
    behavior

   Cognitive - Examines how people
    understand and think about the world

   Humanistic – Contends that people can
    control their behavior and that they
    naturally try to reach their full potential
The Scientific Method
   The approach used by psychologists to
    systematically acquire knowledge and
    understanding about behavior and other
    phenomena of interest.
    1. Identifying questions of interest,
    2. Formulating an explanation, (Theories and
       Hypotheses)
    3. Carrying out research designed to support
       or refute the explanation.

   research designed to systematically
