Experimental Psychology
Michigan State University.
2016 (English)In: A Companion to the History of American Science / [ed] Georgina M. Montgomery and Mark A. Largent, Chicester, UK: Wiley-Blackwell Publishing Inc., 2016, 1st, 95-109 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Psychology is an eclectic and evolving field, however, this chapter focuses on only experimental or laboratory psychology, beginning in the late nineteenth-century United States and tracing its development until about 1950. It aims to explore how and why experimental psychology grew so rapidly and took the shape it did. The chapter follows its early developments, then its coalescence under the banner of behaviorism, a school-cum-dynasty within experimental psychology during the first half of the twentieth century. It traces a branching network of influence through select figures in early scientific psychology: Wilhelm Wundt, Edward Titchener, William James, G.S. Hall, J.B. Watson, and Clark Hull. To deepen the analysis of why experimental psychology grew as it did, the chapter also explores sympathies and correspondences between the purportedly "objective" space of the laboratory and the broader surrounding matrix of cultural norms and values.
