Borobudur is the world’s largest Buddhist temple, and a architectural wonder. It is nestled between two mountains and two rivers.
Built in the 9th century, the temple is a collection of nine platforms stacked on each other, covered by a giant dome. It looks like a pyramid from the side and like a mandala geometric pattern from above. It has 2672 relief panels, and over 500 statues.
Any great structure takes years to make, and many dedicated people. This is true of temples and sciences. Borobudur stood 75 years to construct (best guess). Psychology has been under construction for 150 years and is still unfinished.
The people who created psychology are “nuts” about psychology. They worked hard at discovering small portions of the truth which lead others to their discoveries. Eventually, a mountain of knowledge about human behavior has been created and a new science emerged.
History & Systems of Psychology is also called the history of psychology. It is the study of how psychology came to be, and of the people who contributed to its development. All areas of psychology are included: abnormal, personality, developmental, learning, perception and neuropsychology.
It is a good summary of everything psychology covers. It includes ideas from every philosophy in the world, every science and every culture. Great ideas come from all over the world. Maybe the world is round to remind us that no one has a corner of wisdom.
