Sigmund Freud was born May 6, 1856. He died September 23, 1939. Regardless of the perception of Sigmund Freud’s theories, there is no question that he had an enormous impact on the field of psychology. His work supported the belief that not all mental illnesses have physiological causes and he also offered evidence that cultural differences have an impact on psychology and behavior. His work and writings contributed to our understanding of personality, human development, and clinical psychology.

He Published Client-centered Therapy in 1951. In 1961 he Published On Becoming A Person. In 1987 he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. After receiving his Ph.D., Rogers spent a number of years working in academia, holding positions at Ohio State University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Wisconsin. It was during this time that Rogers developed his approach to therapy, which he initially termed "nondirective therapy." This approach, which involves the therapist acting as a facilitator rather than a director of the therapy session, eventually came to be known as client-centered therapy.

Carl Jung (1875-1961) developed analytical psychology, also known as Jungian Psychology, which is a theory of psychoanalysis. Jung believed that the psyche yearned for a balanced state of consciousness and unconsciousness simultaneously and that each person strives to attain harmony within consciousness and unconsciousness. Jung made several contributions to psychology, but the concept that has probably gained the widest general use is his concept of introversion and extraversion. Another major contribution that Jung has made to psychology is his theory of type. Through his research, Jung discovered that people think, feel, and experience the world in fundamentally different ways and this theory is an effective tool in helping us understand how people function. Jung’s theory of type has even influenced the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator, which has become one of the most popular psychology tests in the world

Considered by many to be the father of what is now known to be the field of Communication theory, Aristotle was one of the most famous of the ancient Greek Philosophers. Born in 384 B.C. in what was believed to be Stalgiria, Chalcidice; Aristotle was the epitome of the idealistic philosophizing Greek. He was the student of the famed Plato, and as such was brought up as a student of many different disciplines. Some of these aforementioned disciplines which were studied by and even founded by Aristotle include: physics, metaphysics, poetry, music, theatre, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, and other sciences. Many say that the way to measure a man is to measure those who follow in their footsteps; a prime example of Aristotle’s greatness, (applying this way of thinking,) is his student, Alexander the Great, the man who, in his time conquered most of the known world! Aristotle is sometimes called the founder of Comm. Theory due to his theories and writings on the topic of rhetoric, sometimes referred to as Aristotilian Argumentation. Aristotle is thought to have died around the age of 61 in 322 B.C. in Euboea.
Born 5 May, 1818, this Prussian citizen, who later resided in the United Kingdom, has been described by many as being among the most influential of men in the history of mankind. Founder of what is now known in today’s world as Communism; Marx’s ideas and philosophies have influenced powerful nation rulers, been the determining factor of life or death of many, and have definitely influenced the history of the world as a whole. Among Marx’s most famous works are “The Communist Manifesto,” and “Das Kapital.” Marx is not only known for his communistic ideas, however, but also for his creation of “Critical Theory,” (a theory that focuses on interpretation and explanation of certain communications given from person to person.)
In 1890, New York State passed the State Care Act, ordering indigent mentally ill patients out of poor-houses and into state hospitals for treatment and developing the first institution in the U.S. for psychiatric research. It was the first time that the state assumed full responsibility of all mentally ill people. It was believed that state hospitals, which were formally known as lunatic asylums, could care more economical and individualized care. It was also believed that the state hospitals could better identify the classification of patients.
-Development of written/consistent language
Around 3000 B.C., ancient civilizations such as Egypt were among the first in recorded history to invent, utilize, and preserve in writing a consistent language among a large group of people. The invention of written languages such as that which was utilized by the Egyptians around 3000 B.C. shows that the people of these early civilizations began to recognize the utter import of correct and efficient communication, and the preservation of their languages. The fact that these languages were now written gave them the ability to send and receive messages, creating a much more efficient and proficient society in general.
Around 3000 B.C.
-Lasswell’s Model of Communication
This model of communication is arguably the first to espouse actual communication theory. Following Aristotle’s ideas and outlines given in “Rhetoric,” Lasswell designed a model which clearly demonstrates and depicts the “flow” of a conversation, or the natural process which a message must undergo in order to be effectively communicated. His model is separated into five simple, yet definitive steps: “Who,” (the speaker,) “What,” (the message,) “Channel,” (the medium of communication,) “Whom,” (the audience receiving the message,) and “Effect,” (or what the message’s effect is.) With these five simple, defined steps, communication theorists and professionals were now able to more effectively see the most productive ways in which messages should be sent, intended, and received. The field of communication now had a hard, well-set-out system in which to analyze the effectiveness of its theories!
In1905, Alfred Binet's Intelligence Test was published in France. Binet created this test with the help of his college Theodore Simon because the French government asked him to help decide which students would require more help. It became known as the Binet-Simon Scale and is the basis for the intelligence test used today. Binet developed the concept of mental age, which is still used today in William Stern’s Intelligence Quotient formula.

The Stanford prison experiment was conducted in August 1971 at Stanford University. Twenty-four students were randomly selected to become prisoners and prison guards. The experiment was created to study the psychological effects that those roles had on the students. The experiment was led by a Philip Zimbardo and the US Office of Naval Research funded it. Unfortunately, the students adapted to their roles a little too well. The students who were playing the role of guards became very controlling and using psychological torture on the prisoners. The students who were prisoners even started to believe that they really belonged in there. Even though the experiment was scheduled for two weeks, it ended after only six days.

Noam Chomsky (1928) is a cognitive scientist. His theories include Chomsky hierarchy, Universal Grammar Theory and Chomsky-Schutzenberger theorem. The Chomsky hierarchy explored various formal languages to define and link properties within human language. He also challenged traditional behaviorist views by arguing that the research (done on animals) could not transcend into humans. His research has propelled him to become a leader in his field especially that of linguistics and interestingly enough his theories can be applied to computers and in mathematics equations. This makes him a great candidate for interdisciplinary studies.

William James (1842-1910) not only was he a psychologist but he was a physician. He was the first to offer a class on psychology and is considered the father of American psychology. He founded what is known as functional psychology. Functionalism is the foundation of modern psychology and evaluates behaviors and mental life in adapting to a person's environment. They reject the structuralism and their introspective view. The theories of functionalism have been criticized because they are not based on experiments.

Since I am an intergrated studies I though t this article was interesting on how psychology technology is being used to develop sports trading. This particular software, made by Clare Flynn Levy, is designed to impute lifestyle factors including dies and the amount of exercise. This technology will be used to analyze and align performance with skill and calculate in luck to receive information concerning the best or worst trades. This technology will help fund managers eliminate emotions in player trades and allow for a more logical trade.
Psychology is an importance factor in any discipline because it provides insight to human action and motivation. When it comes to sports trade I think the technology will benefit teams because it does not give room for the inner voice or feelings in the choice.

I choose this current article and study because I am interested in developmental psychology. This study was designed by John Hewitt a neuroscientist surrounded around the teenage cognitive ability. He at first assessed that intelligence depends largely on biology but the findings actually showed a stronger link between intelligence and environment versus biological factors. He found that adversary may be a determinant in it as well. Because of children’s ability to make connections and syntax the information they are more equipped for learning and adolescents with higher IQS tend to continue this hyperdrive learning for a longer period of time. This period can be supported through the evolvement of learning new things such as music or language.

Do you want to communicate with aliens. It started in the 1800s. People over the years have been crazy about wanting to know if there is another life form. People have actually tried different tactics to try to communicate with the aliens. The first one is burning canals and making crop circles. The reason is because they want the aliens to be able to see the message from above. The next one was using concentrated lights because Charles Cros thought that he saw other worldly cities. With the light he tried to communicate to other planets by using Morse code.

Adam Ferguson (20 June 1723 – 22 February 1816) is considered to be a great historian but is also one of the prominent practitioners of sociology. He was one of the first sociologist to try to put himself in one shoes and see how he would react in a similar situation. Most people of this era didn’t empathize with people and because of this didn’t understand why people made certain decisions they would never seem to make. This allowed a greater insight into the minds of people. He then relayed this into reading and putting himself within an authors’ shoes as well.
Emmanuel Joseph Sieyès (3 May 1748 – 20 June 1836) he was the first to actually name the term ("sociologie"). He was French but took the Latin word socius which meant “companion” and the Greek word “ology” which means the study of. He was also a prime figure in the French Revolution and is one of the main reasons Louis the XVI was executed. He was also one of the first members of what turned into the Academy of Moral and Political Science of the Institute of France. This academy is divided into five sections and for its main purposes in political economy and statistics, law and jurisprudence general and philosophical history, politics, administration, and finance the discussion of mental philosophy
French Revolution (1789—1799) in this revolution, it was basically a cause of Marx perspective about how the lower class was being treated compared to the upper class. This revolution is the foundation that really shows what sociology evolved into. Through the theories of Marx people started to realize why they accepted such a poor government. People started to wonder why the upper class lived in luxury meanwhile they barely had food to eat. This shaped the beginning and showed the important of the social effects that the economy can have on people and was predicted by Marx exactly.
Russian Revolution (1892—1917) One of the longer revolutions that took place was an important benefactor of sociology. Just as the French Revolution started, lower workers feeling oppressed started to challenge the upper hierarchy. The Russians beforehand made the lower class workers really feel like peasants and with the introduction of sociologist they started to want change. Sociologist in that era predicted that this would turn into a war because the lower class has become overcrowded and unsuitable to live a normal life. This point in history changed how the Russian government viewed the social society.
American Journal of Sociology is the number one journal in the world. It goes more into the aspect of each kind of sociological theory there is and base it off the different standpoints. Whether it’s quantitative or qualitative data being observed, it correctly classifies each article and essay. It is the number 70 overall book in the world, just shows how much this book is deemed to be important in any field of study. The majority of people that have made articles in this book have gone on to be successful in life and are some of the more well recognized sociologist that are or have been a part of this world.
American Sociology Review. Rated the 80th most important book in the world and the second best sociology book that a sociologist has. This book is one of the more important key books to have as a review source. This book primarily focuses on reviews from different people from across the world. Its and open-ended journal review meaning that it is a highly debatable book. It is a book where you can freely express your opinions, nonetheless, you are open for attack if another sociologist deems that your finds are wrong or not valid. This is what makes this book
different from other journals in the world.
American Sociological Association is a non-profit group primarily based in Washington, DC. It is the most notable group that will be on this list. This group primarily focuses on gathering as much data about sociology as possible. They want to study people and tries their best to advance the world in the field of sociology. Their goal is to create more jobs and make sociology a wider known discipline than it is today. In a short time they have made sociology more recognizable across the globe and because of them sociology has become a more talked about discipline than in past years.
International Sociological Association is a non-profit organization who primarily focuses on the sociology outside of the United States. This organization was founded in 1905 and has helped many people that don’t have access to the information that most American have understand what sociology is. Understanding sociology is key because it helps people understand each other, furthermore, helps us understand why we think differently and make different decisions. In knowing this it allows people with different ethnic and racial backgrounds try to understand each other which in turn will make the world a better place because everyone has different cultural backgrounds.
Evolution. I believe that evolution plays a very big part in how we see sociology. If we didn’t evolve we probably wouldn’t see sociology as we do today. The way we communicate changes sociology daily. I believe as the more we evolve and gain knowledge about the world because we have barely scrapped the surface, the more advance our sociology will become. All in all, sociology is directly related to evolution

In 1904 Mary Calkins is elected president of the APA.
