All people from the textbook we were asked to read about:

_____________________________________________________________________________________ *anything covered extensively in class is left out

Spinoza and Leibniz  

o Spinoza  

o Said that god, nature, and the mind were inseparable

o Pantheism: the belief that god is everywhere  

o The mind and body were two aspects of the same things – the living human being. Like  two sides of a coin they are inseparable

o Said there is no such thing as free will  

o Leibniz  

o Rejected the idea that all ideas come from experience and said that no ideas come from  experience  

o He concluded that everything was living and that everything was created from a “monad” (a single unit of a living thing). All monads are active and conscious.  

o Thought of a scale of gradually increasing intelligence. Plants, microbes, insects, animals,  humans, and god.  

o Rejected the mind-body dualism  

o Proposed a psychophysical parallelism based on the notion of preestablished harmony  o What is actually experienced consciously is explained in terms of events beyond the  realm of conscious experience  


o Believed that life consisted of opposing forces such as love v. hate, life v. death, etc.  o He was a writer about most things with no scientific value but he made many scientific  discoveries in autonomy and botony.  

o Employed a form of what is now called behavior therapy to alleviate a number of his own  personal problems and the problems of one of his students who was depressed  

o Had many influences on the development of psychology  


o Said there are two aspects of human nature: the apollonian (our rational side) and the  Dionysian (our irrational side).  

o Viewed himself mainly as a psychologist

o Shared the goal of helping individuals gain control of their powerful and irrational  impulses  

o Said that people no longer could look to god for meaning to life due to science and  philosophy

Psych3511 Exam Two Study Guide by Alex on StudySoup

o Thought instincts should not be repressed, but rather should be given expression  o The will to power is to gain control over one’s self and one’s destiny

o Gave her own theory on color vision  

o Lectured on logic and psychology at johns Hopkins until she moved back to new York where she  then lectured on her theory of color vision at Columbia

o Her theories were abandoned  

Chapter 15 notes

o Mental illness has existed for a long time, though not with that term. Mad, lunatic, and insane  have been used in the past.  

o What is mental illness?

o Harmful behavior such as hurting one’s self or others when it’s not socially acceptable  o Unrealistic thoughts or perceptions that are markedly different than what is considered normal in a certain time/place in history. False beliefs and false perceptions  

(hallucinations/delusions) fall under this category  

o Inappropriate emotions such as laughing at a funeral or crying during a happy time.  o Unpredictable behavior like sudden massive mood swings.  

o Early explanations of mental illness

o Biological:  

▪ All disease is caused by some aspect of the body, usually the brian

▪ Other things such as injuries, tumors, ingestions of toxins, polluted air, water or  food, disease, and excessive stress  

o Psychological explanations:

▪ Grief, disappointment, anxiety, fear, frustration, guilt, or conflict can cause  

mental illness.  

o Supernatural explanations  

▪ Anything that was not easily explained in primitive times was due to mysterious  forces. Disorders did not exist but rather they were the outcome of a mysterious  force.  

o Early treatments of mental illness  

o Psychotherapy: an attempt to help a person with a mental disturbance  

o Natural law (18th century): the belief that you get what you deserve in life  

o Supernatural approach: Removing a supernatural force from one’s body. Bleeding a  patient, trepanation, and exorcism were all ways that mysterious forces were removed  from one’s body.  

o Biological approach: During Hippocrates time, patients were treated humanely and  prescribed rest and work to help cure them.  

o The return of the supernatural approach: Witch hunts in the 1400s-1600s.  

o Improvement of the treatments for mental illness
