Psicologia Experimental: Instrumentos e Aparelhos

Museum of Psychological Instruments David Pantaloney.  University of Toronto (ON).

Coleção de instrumentos utilizados em psicologia experimental no final do século XIX.

Nas palavras de David Pantaloney, um pouco de história:

"In 1891, James Mark Baldwin founded the psychology laboratory at the University of Toronto, the first of its kind in the British Commonwealth. University College provided Baldwin with a modest budget to purchase instruments, books and furniture for the new laboratory. In 1897, Baldwin’s successor, August Kirschmann, expanded the laboratory to 16 rooms. Kirschmann, who had come from Wundt’s laboratory in Germany, added several instruments to the laboratory, founded a publication series and established a thriving research program.

"The Baldwin-Kirschmann instruments, which make up a majority of our collection at U of T, represent the earliest period in experimental psychology, best known as the 'New Psychology', or 'Brass Instrument Psychology'.  Brass instruments played a major role in defining the image of the 'New Psychology." They showed, writes historian Michael Sokal, just what was new about the 'New Psychology'.  Psychologists were intent on modeling their new discipline on the natural sciences; psychological instruments and laboratory practice served to legitimize this movement, thereby separating psychology from its traditional parent, philosophy.



"In the past 30 years historians of science have begun to recognize the value of scientific instruments. By studying instruments, historians are able to better understand the actual practice of science, as well as the theoretical concerns. In the case of the present collection, a serious study of psychological instruments provides insight into the technical origins of experimental psychology."
