Pressestimmen

"stimulating and informative ... Readers of these essays and relections will learn much about the different ways that professional psychologists, past and present, have struggled with this mystery of the relationship between mind and body and how each should be scientifically investigated; how they have looked to engineering and technology for models of how the mind might be understood; and how they have sought to apply that understanding to the tasks of developing, educating, healing, controlling, predicting and simulating individual human minds." Thomas Dixon, University of Cambridge, BJHS, Vol.36, September 2003 "This volume ... does well to fill many gaps in the patchy record of British psychology, and will provide impetus to boot ... it boasts contributions from some of the finest historians on the British scene, and some of its most important practitioners ... I found most pieces to be high quality, and more than useful in several cases." Roderick D. Buchanan, University of Groningen, Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, Vol.39(4), Fall 2003
