Wilhelm Max Wundt
Birth: Aug. 16, 1832
Death: Aug. 31, 1920

Scientist. German psychologist, regarded as the father of experimental psychology. Born in Neckerau in Germany, he studied medicine at Tübingen, Heidelberg, and Berlin. In 1857, he was appointed dozent at Heidelberg, where he lectured on physiology. From 1858 to 1864 he studied the neurological and chemical stimulation of muscles. In 1864, he became an assistant professor at Heidelberg. Three years later, he started a course he called physiological psychology. His major work, the Principles of Physiological Psychology ("Grundzüge der physiologischen Psychologie") was published in 1873. The aim of his philosophy is that every physical event has a mental counterpart, and every mental event has a physical counterpart. He became professor of philosophy at Leipzig in 1875 and he has been working there in the next 45 years. In 1881, he started the journal "Philosophische Studien". In 1883, he began the first course to be titled experimental psychology. Later he became interested in social or cultural psychology. He wrote a ten volume "Volkerpsychologie", published between 1900 and 1920, which included the idea of stages of cultural development. In 1920, he wrote "Erlebtes and Erkanntes", his autobiography. He died in 1920.  (bio by: Apats)
