About the book:

"Trailblazing history. . . . After presenting a brilliant kaleidoscope of 18th- and 19th-century writings, Reed concludes that philosophy broke away from psychology, not the reverse, and that psychology is the poorer for it. . . . Reed uncovers and makes accessible an intellectual treasure-trove that will change the way we think about the last 250 years."-Library Journal "Intellectually challenging . . . informative and rewarding."-Kirkus Reviews "Reed is a person who thinks in an uncluttered way as well as writes so. His history is a splendid achievement beautifully crafted, sensibly and wisely thought through."-William Kessen In this lively and original account of psychology's formative years, the late Edward S. Reed describes the attempts of nineteenth-century thinkers and practitioners to make psychology into a science. Setting psychological developments within the social, religious, and literary contexts of the time, Reed counters the widespread belief that psychology emerged from philosophy and shows that the reverse is true.
