This unusual collection explores the development of ideas in psychology’s past, and shapes them into a valuable resource for ideas in the discipline’s future, with particular emphasis on holistic traditions in psychology. Themes covered include holistic thought in psychology at large and the following disciplinary/areas in particular: philosophy, cultural psychology, comparative psychology, evolutionary psychology, biology, personality and emotion theories, as well as the export and development of holistic traditions in nations such as Germany, France, Japan, South Africa, and others.
