Giants of Psychology


This unique, ongoing series introduces students to the lives and works of theorists whose concepts are basic to an understanding of contemporary psychology.

These films reflect the enormous effort that is extended to produce them and have become integral to many introductory courses. Rare archival materials help students grasp the fact that these people really lived and responded to situations that shaped their work. Carefully shot contemporary footage supports the learning of vocabulary and concepts necessary to understanding the work of these seminal thinkers. Each script consultant, who also serves as the narrator, has had an impressive career extending the work of the thinkers they present.
