Introduction in the history of psychology

Until the 19th century psychology was not an independent scientific discipline, it was hard to separate from the purely abstract philosophical reasoning. What we now call psychology, in fact it was part of the philosophy. Some concepts and problems that are important applications in psychology – the relative importance of innate and acquired, the variability and stability of the human person, the relationship of the mind and emotions, the nature of motivation, freedom and determinism in human behavior, the existential meaning and value of personal self, the relationship of mind and body , the nature of consciousness and perception, the importance of dreams – previously discussed by many philosophers, beginning with the ancient Greeks, especially Plato and Aristotle, and later in the works of thinkers such as Augustine, Aquinas, Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, and Kant. However, only in the 19th century general arguments and manipulation of abstract concepts replaced hypotheses verified in experiments and taken only on the basis of factual evidence.

Prerequisites for conversion discipline of psychology in English empirical philosophers provided school -Locke, Hume, Berkeley, to attach particular importance to individual sense operception. According to their views, sensory perception (“impressions”) gives rise to the “idea”, “association,” which are the basis of “reasoning.” It follows that the sensory experience – it is the first significant step in the development of consciousness. Based on these assumptions, the new experimental psychology has focused attention on the question of how to form a human representation of the external world. Required to determine the conditions under which sensory stimulation leads to the appearance of “ideas”, and what are the mechanisms of association of ideas, providing learning and memorization.
