By way of a narrative history, this book critically explores the evolution of psychology from the Ancient Greeks to the present, in its philosophical, religious, historical, and literary contexts. The book introduces and develops three psychological and sociological themes. One is the idea that not only is psychology necessarily a social construction but that the mind itself is to some degree a social construction. The second them involves struggles over the existence and nature of consciousness. The third is the theme of psychology as an applied discipline. This book is appropriate for anyone who is interested in critically exploring the evolution of psychology from its origins to the present.
