The American Psychological Association : a historical perspective by American Psychological Association( Book )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, published as part of the APA [American Psychological Association] centennial celebration, demonstrates how the association evolved in response to intellectual, cultural, political, and economic historical developments. Nine chronological chapters discuss the personalities and events, the successes and failures, that molded the APA and transformed it from a small organization of 26 academician-researcher members to one of the largest professional associations in the United States and in the world, with a membership of over 100,000 academicians, scientists, and practitioners. Three other chapters offer a look at the association in terms of the role of women, of its conception of social responsibility, and of its mandate to disseminate knowledge to its own members and beyond. . . . This volume clearly demonstrates that, because the American Psychological Association began so early in the development of modern psychological thought, its history and development have been intimately bound up with the development of the field as a whole.

Catholics in psychology, a historical survey by Henryk Misiak( Book )

16 editions published in 1954 in English and French and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides an excellent account of the contributions of Catholics to scientific psychology during the years of its inception, growth, and establishment. The authors have worked from original sources with great care, and they make an important contribution to the history of modern psychology, not only by their description of the achievements of Catholic psychologists, but also by the vivid settings which they provide for the little-known psychological work of such countries as Italy, Poland, and Spain. Their accounts will interest Catholics who feel pride in the accomplishments of fellow religionists, and also non-Catholics who have been wondering about the alleged conflict between religious faith and scientific faith. On this latter point Father Misiak and Dr. Staudt conduct a gentle scholarly propaganda, for they believe strongly that there is no conflict at all and that the way to prove the fact of harmony is to show that Catholic psychologists do not feel the conflict and that their research does not show it. The Church itself--although that does not mean every individual within the Church--accepts inference based on controlled observation as a valid guide to truth, and for the most part the Church's dogmas are not concerned with those theories that count as the facts of science. Faith is the evidence of things unseen; it differs from science in being concerned with the unobservable"--Preface
