[BF 81 .H56 1980]
An interesting book. See especially the contributions of Wertheimer (rationales
for doing historical research in the history of psychology), Woodward (critical
historiography as art and science), Bringmann & Ungerer (search and use of
Wundtian archival and manuscript materials), Benjamin (case history of his
own use of the Akron Archives), and Sokal ("internalist"
and "externalist" approaches to the history of science).
