Wundt and the Philosophical Foundations of Psychology

Full page photoDear friends and members of the ESHHS,
we are happy to announce that Saulo de Freitas Araujo, one of our long time members, published his book on Wundt.

About the book:

This book reassesses the seminal work of Wilhelm Wundt by discussing the history and philosophy of psychology. It traces the pioneering theorist’s intellectual development and the evolution of psychology throughout his career. The author draws on little-known sources to situate psychological concepts in Wundt’s philosophical thought and address common myths and misconceptions relating to Wundt’s ideas. The ideas presented in this book show why Wundt’s work remains relevant in this era of ongoing mind/brain debate and interest continues in the links between psychology and philosophy.

Featured topics include:

Theoretical and philosophical foundations of Wundt’s early work in scientific psychology.
Wundt’s conception of scientific philosophy in relation to his theory of knowledge.
The epistemological dimensions of Wundt’s final project in scientific psychology.

Wundt and the Philosophical Foundations of Psychology is a valuable resource for researchers, professors, and graduate students in cognitive and related psychology and philosophy disciplines.
