Counter
Most_students of psychology today have little understanding of all the theories and world views their discipline championed in earlier decades._ They are unaware of the philosophical underpinning of their work and the relatively new establishment of the field as a science. The History of Psychology in Context allows students to understand the history of the discipline, including its origins in philosophy and emergence as a science, while considering the impact of social and cultural factors on the development of the discipline.
