Abstract

Reproduces the 1947 report of the Harvard Commission in the context of a contemporary discussion of the place of psychology in the university. The Commission, composed of 12 eminent scientists, reviewed the status of psychology since the close of World War II and made recommendations for its future development in the “ideal” university. 5 of the original Commission members (D. Bronk, L. Carmichael, J. Dollard, E. R. Hilgard, and J. C. Whitehorn) present retrospective comments on their earlier report as seen “Twenty-Five Years Later.” The reprint report and commentary are 1 of 3 sections of a Special Issue on “The Place of Psychology in the University” (see M. H. Appley, 44:10). (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
