    Default A Challenge for Psychology Nerds

    I've been trying to get my mind around the evolution of Western psychology, and to do that, I need a good visual aid in the form of a timeline.

    The challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create a visually appealing timeline that traces the different schools of thought in psychology, starting from Wundt's lab in 1879 to modern day psychological theory. You can add whatever else you think is interesting, but that should be the focus. It shouldn't be restricted to personality theory, but that's pretty interesting too. Post your work here.

    The sources I'm going to be using are Wikipedia and this site. Feel free to use them too, or to find your own, or to combine these and others. (Pretty crazy timeline here and here, but not visually appealing.)

    Ready? GO!

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Do you need something more than this?

    The History of Psychology

    Because fuck me if I'm starting from scratch or doing this to make it "visually appealing enough."


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Yeah, this would be a huge project. Even that is very lacking. It doesn't even mention big figures such as Horneye and Erikson, and totally leaves out more than a few theories.

    I found another visually-unappealing one with Erikson & other theories.

    Edahn can merge the two into his own damn timeline.


    Googling "schools of psychology timeline" yields a lot.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    I don't see why we should do Edahn's (home)work for him. If you're interested... grab any first year intro psych textbook and go through the chapter reviews. Most of them are organized by various schools of psychology and there'll be a date for them.
