Overview

This book presents biographical portraits of 22 of psychology's pioneers, portraits of them as men and women as well as scientists. All of these portraits, many of them offered by a descendant, colleague, or student of the pioneer, are informal. Most of them are lighthearted, even humorous, in their approach. A few are intimate and personal. Several authors impersonate their pioneers and present the stories of their lives and work in the pioneer's own words. Typically the authors view the scientific achievements of the pioneers in the context of their times. Collectively they describe psychology's search for direction and significance in the dawning of a new discipline.
