Fig 1.1 – Experimental Psychology

Text: Page 1

The Renaissance, the Scientific Revolution, and Enlightenment laid the foundation for the birth of psychology. Those movements inspired by the Greek scholars immortalized in the School of Athens fresco painted by Raphael. For centuries, philosophers and theologians had dominated the conversation about human behavior. They based their theories on philosophic principles or religious beliefs. Although a rebirth was occurring in science, something was still missing. Medicine took the body and religion took the soul to study. Psychology filled the void and took the mind, symbolized by its beginning in a laboratory. A new psychological science created to understand and change human behavior from the findings in the new experimental laboratories, research institutes, clinical treatment and psychological testing rooms.
