Summary
  • "This volume provides an excellent account of the contributions of Catholics to scientific psychology during the years of its inception, growth, and establishment. The authors have worked from original sources with great care, and they make an important contribution to the history of modern psychology, not only by their description of the achievements of Catholic psychologists, but also by the vivid settings which they provide for the little-known psychological work of such countries as Italy, Poland, and Spain. Their accounts will interest Catholics who feel pride in the accomplishments of fellow religionists, and also non-Catholics who have been wondering about the alleged conflict between religious faith and scientific faith. On this latter point Father Misiak and Dr. Staudt conduct a gentle scholarly propaganda, for they believe strongly that there is no conflict at all and that the way to prove the fact of harmony is to show that Catholic psychologists do not feel the conflict and that their research does not show it. The Church itself--although that does not mean every individual within the Church--accepts inference based on controlled observation as a valid guide to truth, and for the most part the Church's dogmas are not concerned with those theories that count as the facts of science. Faith is the evidence of things unseen; it differs from science in being concerned with the unobservable"--Preface
  • "This book makes no attempt to rewrite the whole history of psychology, which in general has been well recounted by others, but it aims to supplement the standard textbooks in the field because of their lack of information concerning Catholic participation in psychology. Our volume is intended, therefore, as supplementary reading primarily for students in Catholic colleges and universities, especially for those who are studying the history of psychology and systematic psychology. We have concentrated on pointing out those who did the pioneer work in psychology among Catholics. We hope that a book of this sort will stimulate greater participation of Catholics in psychology. Because of the difficulty of obtaining adequate information, the book obviously has omissions and inadequacies"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
