The purpose of this course is to provide an overall view of the emergence of Psychology as a field, its historical roots; its evolution within a broader sociocultural context, and philosophical currents running throughout this evolution. Attention will be paid to the interaction of theory development and the social milieu, the cultural biases within theory and the effect of personal history on theoretical claims.
Conditions allowing, we will meet in person for seminars and student presentations. Any activities, such as lecture presentations, requiring all attending in one location will be held remotely. Depending on the evolving pandemic situation, this may be altered. Several experiential exercises will be conducted as allowed via remote technology.
