History of Psychology – In the beginning

Students are to organize a timeline of key figures and/or developments in the history of psychology. The timeline should start with the philosophical roots of psychology during the pre-Renaissance period (e.g., Plato, Stoicism, Confucius, Avicenna) and end with the establishment of psychology as a discrete science field (Wundt’s lab in Leipzig). Each slide should include a key figure or development (theory), a description of the person/theory and explanation of the influence of the person/theory. Additionally, at least one slide should discuss the figures and developments/theories in the history of psychology from a Christian perspective identifying which are the most and least compatible with Biblical teachings. The slides should also include some sort of visual aid to help describe the information in the slide (e.g., picture, graphic, symbol).
