Welcome to the SAGE edge site for History of PsychologyFirst Edition!

History of Psychology: The Making of a Science provides students with a comprehensive overview of the formulation of the field of psychological science. Starting with a chapter on 21st Century Psychology and then jumping to the dawn of civilization, author Edward P. Kardas is able to make connections between early understandings of human behavior with our current understandings and interpretations of psychological research. Through highlighting the zeitgeist of the era and making connections to the related fields of philosophy, computational science, biology, and social science, students will have a deeper understanding of how and why the field has formed in its current landscape and a sense for where it's headed next.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
