Early Approaches to Psychology
Book used: Hergenhahn’s An Introduction to the History of Psychology Eighth Edition Book should be a source. Your paper needs to result in a discussion of the following ~ How do your findings contribute to answering the question of What does it mean to be human? E.g., if you chose to investigate a notable individual, then based on your investigation, how do you think he/she would answer that question (explicitly demonstrate how/why)? If you chose a concept/issue/procedure, then how does our knowledge of said concept/issue/procedure address the question of what it means to be human (again, show how/why)? WRITING OBJECTIVES Written work is essential in psychological science. It forces students to think about the subject matter, creatively apply it, and effectively communicate their conclusions to others. All written work requires the students to apply the scientific principles they learn in the course, demonstrate their logical analysis skills, and exhibit clear and effective writing.
