PS 102 - Philosophy of Psychology


The course is designed to give students an overview of psychology from psychophysics to modern day clinical practice in order to provide a coherent framework for future psychology coursework. The major historical figures that have shaped psychology will be covered as well as the philosophical underpinnings of their thinking. In addition, students will be exposed to scientific thinking in general and the history of discovery in several nonpsychological sciences such as physics, biology, cosmology, and geology. This course is a requirement for psychology majors and is open to the general student population.
