A History of Modern Experimental Psychology

The evolution of cognitive psychology, traced from the beginnings of a rigorous experimental psychology at the end of the nineteenth century to the "cognitive revolution" at the end of the twentieth, and the social and cultural contexts of its theoretical developments. Modern psychology began with the adoption of experimental methods at the end of the nineteenth century: Wilhelm Wundt established the first formal laboratory in 1879; universities created independent chairs in psychology shortly thereafter; and William James published the landmark work Principles of Psychology in 1890. In A History of Modern Experimental Psychology, George Mandler traces the evolution of modern experimental and theoretical psychology from these beginnings to the "cognitive revolution" of the late twentieth century. Throughout, he emphasizes the social and cultural context, showing how different theoretical developments reflect the characteristics and values of the society in which they occurred. Thus, Gestalt psychology can be seen to mirror the changes in visual and intellectual culture at the turn of the century, behaviorism to embody the parochial and puritanical concerns of early twentieth-century America, and contemporary cognitive psychology as a product of the postwar revolution in information and communication. After discussing the meaning and history of the concept of mind, Mandler treats the history of the psychology of thought and memory from the late nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth, exploring, among other topics, the discovery of the unconscious, the destruction of psychology in Germany in the 1930s, and the relocation of the field's "center of gravity" to the United States. He then examines a more neglected part of the history of psychology—the emergence of a new and robust cognitive psychology under the umbrella of cognitive science.

The foundation of this book is Article 19 of the United Nations on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD) and the growing interest to improve the circumstances of people with ID regarding their lack of choice over their lives and living arrangements. It focuses on Article 19 of the UNCRPD - which encapsulates the right of people with ID to choose where and who to live with same as everyone else in society. This book through inclusive research explored the relocation experiences from the perspectives of people with ID, in relation to their available choices during relocation to the community. It offered a detailed account of actual relocation experience from the point of view of people with ID as it relates to choice opportunities which have not really received much attention and has added to the understanding and contributed to knowledge of relocation process important to further and existing research in this area. This book draws from different prominent scholars in the disability field to illuminate the present choice situation of people with ID and provides interesting insights and realities of people with ID who have relocated or relocating to the communities.

Politics of African Diasporas

This study contributes to recent discussions about the ethics of identity among migrant black scholars in Europe, Africa and the United States. It advances our understating of the politics of African-born academics and their perspectives on participation in transnational social and religious movements. This is an intellectual genealogy of African-born academic exiles in the United States. The focus is on the impact of migration on the migrants identities. How do these academic migrants cope with the challenge of relocation and displacement? What impact does racism have on their identities? Do they consider themselves black? How do they relate to other black scholars in the United States?

Introduction by Toyin Falola A preeminent African American abolitionist, author, public intellectual, physician, the highest ranking black officer during the Civil War, and a notable activist for the emigration of blacks to Africa, Martin Robison Delany has left an enduring legacy in his writings, the power of his ideas, and his political activism. So influential was he during the nineteenth century that a number of people now refer to him as the 'Father of Black Nationalism.' He spent most of his career working toward the goal of seeking black emancipation through practical projects aimed toward returning African Americans to Africa, where he hoped his people would make a new beginning within the context of political freedom and a society devoid of racism. Two of his most influential works on black nationalism are presented in this volume. The Condition, Elevation, and Destiny of the Colored People of the United States (1852) presents Delany's separatist views. To many scholars of African American political thought, this book marks the origin of black nationalism in print. However, its scope is much broader than this single focus might suggest. It is the first book-length study to present an account of the economic and political status of blacks in the United States. Because of the intractable nature of U.S. racism and the deplorable living conditions of most African Americans, Delany concluded by recommending emigration of African Americans to Central America. Some years later Delany turned to Africa as the better choice for relocation of black Americans. Based on an exploratory journey he took to West Africa in 1859, he wrote Official Report of the Niger Valley Exploring Party. The report provides clear information on the conditions in West Africa of that time to give immigrants an idea of what they would encounter. He also provides an impressive amount of data on how to improve agriculture, land, ventilation, and housing to promote better living standards. With an introduction by Toyin Falola, the Frances Higginbothom Nalle Centennial Professor in History at the University of Texas at Austin, this new edition of these two provocative and intriguing nineteenth-century documents sheds much light on the black nationalism movement in the context of African American history.
