Critical Issues and Controversies in Psychology
Psychology as a science has been marked by periods of intense debate regarding key issues. While some issues continue to be debated (e.g. Nature/Nurture), others have generally reached some workable consensus (e.g. localization of function). This course examines a number of the pivotal historical periods in psychological science in the 20th century.
This course forms part of an Australian Psychological Society accredited sequence.
