Pioneers of Psychology: Wilhelm Wundt
Wilhelm Wundt

If you've ever taken an introductory psychology class, then you have probably spent at least a little time learning about Wilhelm Wundt. This German psychologist, physician and philosopher is best known for establishing the first psychology lab in Liepzig, Germany, officially marking the beginning of psychology as a field of science distinct from philosophy and physiology. In addition to being considered one of the founders of contemporary psychology, Wundt is also frequently referred to as the father of experimental psychology.

Originally a professor of physiology, Wundt wanted to apply the same experimental methods used in science to the study of the human mind. Wundt also had an influence on his students, including Edward Titchener who went on to establish a school of thought known as structuralism. Structuralism focused on studying human consciousness by breaking it down to the smallest possible elements.

Learn more about this pioneer of psychology in this brief biography of Wilhelm Wundt.

I Can't Write...Anything

Ok, just kidding. I can probably write something. But I'm having some serious trouble getting back into the saddle (ugh, a cliche, noooooo) after finishing up a HUGE project and taking some time off (a week) and then just "maintaining" (another week).

Summer doesn't help much, either. My kids are old enough to skip the camps. They can self-sustain most of the day. They even feed themselves and disappear into the neighborhood for a couple hours.

I don't even have a point, really. Just venting. Part of my brain seems to just want to stick with perpetual maintenance mode, but I have new clients clamoring and regulars who need to bloom- and the sooner, the better.

Ok, onward.
