Today’s video Hump-Day History lesson was originally posted at the Advances in the History of Psychology blog and is embedded from YouTube. The creator of the video, Chris Green, professor of psychology at York University, has given us kind permission to repost it here as part of this series.
After the jump, a mega-fast primer on ideas about the psyche from Aristotle to the 19th century (we love mega-fast primers here), plus links to longer documentaries of which these are quick recaps.
