This reissued edition (originally published by McGraw-Hill in 1985) of "A Century of Psychology as Science" assesses the accomplishments, status and prospects of psychology at the end of its first century as a science, while offering a new postscript. The essays reflect the 43 contributors' specific disciplines, yet speak to the broader thematic issue of "fundamental psychology". Among the fields addressed are sensory processes and perception, learning, motivation, emotion, cognition, development, personality and social psychology. This work reviews psychology's first century and aims to provide a fresh insight on psychology as it enters its second century.
