Following the successful pattern of The Story of Maths, The Story of Physics, and The Story of Philosophy, The Story of Psychology 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; the ghost in the machine; consciousness, semiconsciousness, and altered consciousness; models of madness; ways of dealing with mental illness; how we learn and know Locke, Hume, Piaget, Chomsky, et al.; the conscious, the unconscious and the subconscious Freud, Jung, and Gestalt models; exploring the mind (including the importance of Shakespeare to Freud); the mind making the world social psychology, normative and pathological psychologies, uses of psychology in sociology, the law, and business. Beautifully illustrated throughout in full color.

Anne Rooney earned an undergraduate degree and then a PhD in medieval literature from Trinity College, Cambridge. She has written many books on science and technology, and was long-listed for the prestigious Aventis Science Prize in 2004.
