Ward and McDougall each made important contributions to psychology in the first decade of the 20th century. In 1904, Ward and W. H. Rivers launched the British Journal of Psychology, then McDougall published his best-known work, An Introduction to Social Psychology, in 1908. James Ward (1843-1925): Philosopher and psychologist who exerted a major influence on the development of psychology in Great Britain. In 1886, Ward’s influential article in the Encyclopaedia Britannica defined psychology’s principal task as 'to analyze and trace the development of individual experience as it is for the experiencing individual' " (please ask for source). "I shall begin by considering the view of the philosophically-minded psychologist James Ward. Essentially what he maintains is that attention and consciousness are identical. That is to say we cannot be aware of anything without giving it some attention, and this for the simple reason that to be aware of it is to attend to it. This means that as far as Ward is concerned it would be meaningless for one to say that he was aware of something but hadn’t given it any attention. The most he could say is that he was aware of it although he hadn’t given it much attention. Seeming absence of attention is explained in Ward’s theory as a low degree of attention" (C.O. Evans, The Subject of Consciousness, p. 74). McDougall acquired Ward's book while on the Harvard faculty. "From 1898, McDougall held lectureships in Cambridge (St. John’s College) and Oxford (Corpus Christi College). Having been made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1912, he was appointed Professor of Psychology at Harvard (1920-1928). As might be expected from a man of such achievement, McDougall was a near-complete polymath. After taking a medical degree, he had turned to anthropology and philosophy. Wide reading (including in French and German) took him near the frontiers of knowledge in history and the hard sciences. His researches ranged from joining a one-year Cambridge University expedition to Borneo, through perceptual and animal studies, to parapsychology. His writing spanned the entire tough-to-tender dimension of psychology, from physiological through to social psychology. He was a fine figure of a man - strongly built, with great dignity, a penetrating gaze and a sensuous mouth that still speaks through photographs of the passions that he experienced, studied and propounded as key features of the human condition" (Chris Brand, William McDougall (1871-1938): heterodox and angry with psychologists by nature, nurture and circumstance; please ask for source).
