WITH GREAT PSYCHIATRISTS
Twelve Dramatic Portraits
John H. Kunkel
From the Foreword by
Ernest R. Hilgard:
"Encounters with Great Psychologists is to be recommended to
those who are overwhelmed by the detailed substance of introductory
psychology texts which emphasize the nitty-gritty of psychological
research, its varied topics, its apparatus, procedures, and statistical
methods. Such features are not to be despised as part of becoming
acquainted with psychology as a science, but it is a pleasure to have
this supplementary approach which keeps the larger issues of human nature
in the forefront.
"Many teachers of psychology may wish to assign this book in
addition to a standard test. Encounters with Great Psychologists
will also be attractive to a general audience of those who share a
curiosity about what has been happening in psychology."
Ernest R. Hilgard
psychologists selected represent the major schools of thought in modern
psychology and its recent history. Each psychologist is the subject of a
short biographical sketch and a synopsis of his major contributions,
followed by a lively conversation between the psychologist and several
individuals. During these sometimes heated discussions, the
psychologist's views of human nature are revealed and his methods and
perspective are described and evaluated. All of these imaginary conversations
are based upon historical documents and events. Together they present the
reader with a comprehensive overview of modern psychology.
