Course textbooks

The first two textbooks mentioned in this section (besides being good coverage for the historical lectures (1-7)) are of some use for my lectures.

The textbook for the course is: Brysbaert & Rastle Historical And Conceptual Issues In Psychology (Harlow : Pearson/Prentice Hall) [GU lib: Psychology B351 BRY     E-book ]

There are two editions:   First edition (2009)   Second edition (2013).

Another excellent book is:
Schultz, D. P., & Schultz, S. E. (2012). Modern Psychology - A History (Wadsworth, Cengage Learning) [Library: Psychology B380 SCHUL3]

Another good book, which helps for some of lectures 8-13:
Harré, Rom (2006) Key thinkers in psychology [electronic resource in the library] (London : SAGE)

Other reading related mainly to lectures 8-13

All the references mentioned in my lectures (and probably a few more I didn't mention) should be listed below. I am not recommending that everyone read these, but for any who wish to follow up points in my lectures. For general, compressed, reading related to my lectures, see above for which of the text book chapters may help.

Most (not quite all) of the following are on the library reading list; and from there direct links to the document are much better done; although they are not in alphabetic order of the author. However here they are alphabetic, one or two new ones added, but the direct links are mostly missing.

By the way: Looking up psychology terms and concepts

My advice is: whenever you want to find out what a psychology term means, first look it up in the index of a first year psychology textbook. Good textbooks, of the kind selected for first year courses, are very good for this:

You might be in this position for several reasons:

If you are an undergraduate you probably already have a first year textbook: go back and use it for the things above. If not, a second hand copy of such a textbook would be useful if it's not very old. The library always has copies of such textbooks: and in fact, has copies of textbooks now not used but still recent. They will be on the library shelves around Shelf-mark Psychology B481.
