What is psychology? When did it begin? How does psychology compare with related subjects such as psychiatry and psychotherapy? To what extent is it scientific? Introducing Psychology answers all these questions and more, explaining what the subject has been in the past and what it is now. The main ‘schools’ of thought and the sections within psychology are described, and key figures are covered as well as many lesser-known but important psychologists.
