Summary
This book traces the development of psychology from its origins as a branch of philosophy to the present day, when it is a discipline in its own right, closely allied with neurology and physiology. Taking in aspects of religious thought and belief, philosophy, anthropology, medical science, psychology, and psychotherapy, the book takes as its subject matter the understanding of the mind. Topics include the study of the soul, how the mind was perceived in the ancient world, and altered consciousness. Beautifully illustrated throughout in full color, this book will give readers a greater interest in and appreciation for psychology
