About this book

This is the life story of the oldest living member of the famous Wertheimer family, beautifully narrated and richly illustrated from the author’s vast stock of memorabilia and his unfailing memory. It is a memoir, but at the same time a document of the exodus of German-speaking psychologists to the New World, which left the homeland scientifically shattered. This lovingly-written pictorial archive of 80 years of the history of modern psychology, shaped by the momentous events of WWII, belongs on the shelf of every psychologist, theoretical, experimental, and clinical, as it gives us the story of how the scientific heritage in Europe and America merged to form the broad and strong disciplines now in our hands, told by one of its premier historical representatives. 

Prof. em. Lothar Spillmann, University of Freiburg, Germany
