Modern scientific psychology began in 1879. We will study many areas of human functioning in this course, including sensation and perception, memory, learning, personality, social psychology, abnormal psychology, and psychotherapy. To the left is a Mandala, which the great Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung, regarded as a symbol of wholeness of personality derived from an archetypal pattern in the collective unconscious. He found variations of this symbol all over the world, even in cultures that had little contact with the outside world. To the right is Sigmund Freud, the founder of Psychoanalysis, walking with his daughter Anna, in 1916.
