In the following section, we will explore some of the ways of thinking early psychologists employed and trace the development of psychology through the various schools of thinking. Understanding the Structure of the Mind: Structuralism An early dialectic in the history of psychology is that between structuralism and functionalism (Leahey, 2003; Morawski, 2000).

Wundt had many followers. One was an American student, Edward Titchener (1867–1927). Titchener (1910) is sometimes viewed as the first full-fledged structuralist. In any case, he certainly helped bring structuralism to the United States. His experiments relied solely on the use of introspection, exploring psychology from the vantage point of the experiencing individual. Other early psychologists criticized both the method (introspection) and the focus (elementary structures of sensation) of structuralism.

The introduction of introspection as an experimental method was an important change in the field because the main emphasis in the study of the mind shifted from a rationalist approach to the empiricist approach of trying to observe behavior in order to draw conclusions about the subject of study. In experiments involving introspection, individuals reported on their thoughts as they were working on a given task. Researchers interested in problem solving could ask their participants to think aloud while they were working on a puzzle so the researchers could gain insight into the thoughts that go on in the participants’ minds.
