The paper discusses courses on general psychology, forensic psychology, abnormal psychology and on persuasion and resistance. The paper asserts that for those entering the psychology profession but uncertain as to where their skills and interests might be applied, these four courses discussed would constitute a very informative starting point for defining a future focus.

From the Paper:

"There is an automatic difficulty in reconciling the claims of some historical accounts with those of others. For example, more empirically inclined traditions of thought are certainly predisposed to reject any history of psychological evolution that includes deference to scientifically unfounded psychotherapy. And contrarily, there are certain overlaps in every history which point to an occasional inevitability in reconciliation, perhaps due to the universally evolutionary leap of certain moments. Such is evidenced by the common reference, across histories, to the work of Freud and others, though such ideas are adapted and parsed as needed for correspondence to different ideological perspectives."
