Using Irony in Teaching the History of Psychology.
Thorne, B. Michael
Teaching of Psychology, v26 n3 p222-24 1999
Examines historical ironies and stories with surprise endings about Rene Descartes and Wilhelm Wundt that can enliven history of psychology lectures and make certain concepts more memorable. Explains that this approach does not trivialize psychology's history but adds humor to a subject that students sometimes find dull. (CMK)
