Influence of Gestalt Psychology
Gestalt psychology made many important contributions to the history of psychology. Today, very few courses cover Gestalt psychology as most of its thoughts are being integrated into other theories. However, Gestalt psychology has greatly impacted the understanding of perceptions and holistic approaches to psychology. Gestalt psychology can also be applied to other realms besides visual understanding. For example, your previous knowledge may influence the way you interpret new information or your worldview impacts how you see and understand the world.
How does your belief system and worldview impact the way you see the world and your understanding of psychology?
