I am a college student in America researching Philosophical Psychology and the origins of
psychology. I was hoping that you could point me in the right direction as far as credible articles on
the internet about this subject. Any help would be most appreciated.
William James springs immediately to mind; there's also Tichener and the Gestaltists. I'm not sure
what you mean by the origins of psychology — that was probably Brentano and Freud insofar as
psychology as a science is concerned. Mesmer, perhaps, also. But if you mean psychology as the
study of the mind, then of course the origins go back to Socrates in the West and Buddha and
Confucius in the East, at least.
