You probably mean McDougall. See _The Battle of Behaviorism_ at http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/Watson/Battle/

Most textbook authors regard him as a significant dynamic psychologist, with his "hormic" theory, which was a "purposive psychology." McDougall also made significant contributions to the psychology of religion, and to psychic research. His book on Body and Mind: A History and Defense of Animism is a classic historical literature review of the mind/body problem, and perhaps the most- frequently cited of his works. He also wrote one of the earliest textbooks on social psychology.
