In this lecturer we discussed about History of Psychology. We learned that history of Psychology is very short. It was started long back. Throughout some twelve or so decades, psychology has led an active life, developing gradually into a true science. As part of evolution, it has produced a number of conceptual models, approaches, theories, interrelated ideas and concepts used to explain phenomena, that has guided the work being carried out. Earlier views of the philosophies and concepts were important because they gave the outline with the help of which modern ideas were developed and further formulated. “Psychology has a long past, but only a short history.”(Hermann Ebbinghaus, 1908).
Wilhelm Wundt set the foundations of modern psychology in 1879, by establishing the first psychology laboratory in Leipzig, Germany.
