Boring and Titchener : LUSENET : History & Theory of Psychology : One Thread

Titchener was Boring's mentor, but what exactly did they agree upon when it came to ideas and theories of psychology?

I'd look for clues in the reflections by historians on Boring's life and work. For example,

Jaynes, J. (1969). Edwin Garrigues Boring: 1886-1968. Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, 5, 99-112.

O'Donnell, J. M. (1979). The crisis of experimentalism in the 1920s. E. G. Boring and his uses of history. American Psychologist, 34, 289- 295.

Kelly, B. N. (1981). Inventing psychology's past: E. G. Boring's historiography in relation to the psychology of his time. The Journal of Mind and Behavior, 2, 229-241B.
