The shift in the field of psychology from studying only stimulus-response behavior to include the study of mental processes (Cognitivism) may cross over to other fields, such as those involving animal behavior. This course covers the paradigm shift in psychology, starting with an overview of the philosophical roots and some of the more influential personalities of behaviorism and then cognitive psychology. From this historical perspective, it will become clear why cognitive psychology arose only in the last 50 years. We will also explore major advantages and disadvantages of each approach to the study of psychology.
