CLI PS600 - History and Systems

(Credits: 2)

This course provides a framework for examining the historical and philosophical perspectives and antecedents of modern psychology. It explores the epistemological bases of psychological thought and how, historically, they have defined the field of applied psychology. Schools of thought (e.g. psychodynamic, behavioral, humanistic, and existential) are examined, with attention to different research modes of inquiry and evidence, and to different views of human nature, the self and social context. Cross listed as CLI PS600, SCH PS600.
