Structuralism & Functionalism : LUSENET : History & Theory of Psychology : One Thread

Hi. I am having a hard time understanding the different ideas of psychology. I am also confused about what Strucuralism is and functionalism is. I am also having a hard time understanding what the psychologists' thories were. If someone can explain to me also without big words I would appreaciate it. Thanks. Sarah

Try Michael Wertheimer's A Brief History of Psychology--it's the simplest of the history texts. You may also find it helpful to read various articles in an Encyclopedia of Psychology--I like the one by Baker Books, but there should be several in your local college or university library. But you'll have to settle for needing to learn some big words!

I am not certain about the topics Functionalism, Structurism, Gestalt, Psycho-Analysis and Behaviourism

Please I will be very grateful if someone can help me understand them
