Example text

His background in medicine made it natural to emphasize physiological aspects of behaviour, though he also hoped that eventually psychology could analyse higher mental processes. He was a prolific writer, publishing almost 500 articles and books and writing papers on all aspects of psychology, from physiological processes to social behaviour. By today’s standards, his equipment and techniques were primitive, but the impact of his work was far-reaching. At this time, psychology did not exist as a distinct discipline; as a result, Wundt’s appointment at the University of Leipzig was as a professor of ‘scientific philosophy’ (as opposed to classical philosophy).

Hence, one might imagine that each approach arose as an attempt to improve on existing theories. This viewpoint, while a bit simplistic, is partially valid. In some cases, theorists do react against what they see as limitations or errors in the work of others. For example, Carl Jung split from his mentor, Sigmund Freud, partly because of disagreements about the meaning of sexuality. At the same time, other factors also come into play. Thomas Kuhn (1970), a specialist in the philosophy of science, has argued that the acceptance or rejection of particular frameworks or approaches (which he calls ‘paradigms’) depends on human preferences as well as the available evidence.

Despite this, Wundt is often regarded as the founder of modern psychology. Interestingly, one of the other early giants of psychology, William James, also began as a medical student. James, the elder brother of the novelist Henry James (The Turn of the Screw is often considered the first of the psychological novels), was born to a wealthy family in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1842. Unlike Wundt, James was an indifferent student, and tried several fields before finally receiving a medical degree from Harvard when he was almost 30.
