There is thing so beautiful as a good footted trichotomous history of something. (Ancient Greek philosopher with strange unprounceable name). Psychology on the Run is a short, selective, and slightly serpentine but sobering sojourn through the history of psychology containing 551 (count 'em) foottes and including a few insights and many insults wherein the intended reader is assumed to be curious, sagacious, erudite, attentive, healthy, wealthy, and-last but t least-gentle. Dedicated to psychologists who toil everywhere and to the ordinary-and I'm sure sometimes extraordinary-person on the street who seeks a simplified historical account of the science of psychology. Also dedicated to the Geists: Zeit-, Ort-, Mann-, and Ding-, whenever, wherever, whoever, and whatever they are.
