Overview

This volume brings together some of the outstanding contributions to the American Psychologist during its 50-year history, and in so doing gives readers a glimpse of the evolution of psychology as an academic discipline, a profession, and a means of promoting human welfare.

Psychology as a discipline has been around only a little over a century. The American Psychologist has played a key role in its evolution by providing a forum for various points of view, which are continually modified as new facts and theories emerge.

The Evolution of Psychology includes one article from each of the American Psychologist's 50 years. Criteria for selection included clarity and accessibility of language; diversity of topics; and timeliness. The selections presented here are as relevant today as when they were first published, providing an engaging overview of this dynamic field.
