Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology: Volume II

Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology: Volume IIOver the past century, various men and women have forged psychology into a dynamic science, leaving behind a rich legacy of innovative research and theoretical perspectives. The volumes in the Portraits of Pioneers in Psychology series chronicle the lives of these giants in the field and outline their influences on psychology today. The first volume in this series concentrated on figures from the earliest days of psychology. This new volume also covers figures from this important era, but includes biographies of more recent psychologists as well. These portraits reintroduce readers to such well-known luminaries as Dorothea Dix, John Dewey and Robert Yerkes, and introduces others whose influence may be better known than their names. Readers may be surprised to learn of the methodological sophistication of Dorothea Dix, or of the contributions of a little-known Hungarian emigre, Paul Schiller.
