About the Author

Rom Harre is a Fellow of Linacre College, Oxford and Professor of Psychology at Georgetown University, Washington, DC


`This is a highly enjoyable, erudite and beautifully written manuscript. It conveys a rare depth of understanding and ability to strike at the core debates. The lively style, concentration on the biopic, use of text features such as links between names, and formal division of each sub-section will all appeal.... I have taught History of Psychology for nearly 6 years. This text will prove for more palatable to students than any of the competitors' - Dr Steve Brown, Loughborough University `This book is well-written. It is clever, flowing and engaging. The balance between biography and contribution is excellent and makes it almost un-put-downable' - Professor Adrian Furnham, University College London
"Without a doubt, this volume provides a wealth of information on selected key thinkers in psychology. The details of each of them are thoroughly covered and well presented in palatable length for a quick but informative reference. Reading this volume makes one marvel at the difficulties some of these key thinkers had to deal with in their research lives. Given the breadth of psychology covered in this volume, libraries of higher institution should consider to have it in their collection as there is always some relevant information for the readers irrespective of their areas of specialization." -- Jyh Wee Sew
