This book traces the gradual emergence and fusion of the humanistic and research traditions of psychology. It uses a developmental approach to illustrate theoretical models of broad human relevance and to show that methods of science contribute to understanding moral and esthetic values. The book considers hypnosis and extrasensory perception as examples of recent fruitful research made possible by combining humanistic insight with appropriate research methods.(Publisher).
