Sample text

The initial foray was in the field of advertising. According to historians of American business Bryant and Dethloff (1990), “Advertising became increasingly important after the 1890s as manufacturers reduced price competition and stressed product differentiation [and as] manufacturing capacity came to exceed demand…In an economy of excess, advertising became the means to dispose of an oversupply” (p. 190). Companies greatly expanded their advertising budgets to deal with product surpluses, and they grew increasingly concerned about maximizing the effects of their advertising campaigns.

Soon the volume of research required a journal to publish the results, so in 1881, Wundt began publication of Philosophical Studies, the first journal for scientific psychology (the title Psychological Studies was already in use for a parapsychology journal and thus could not be used). Wundt also drew on Helmholtz’s work on the speed of nerve conduction as a basis for studying the time course of mental events. Using a reaction time technique pioneered by the Dutch physiologist F. C. Donders, Wundt measured the difference between a simple reaction time (recognizing when a light was presented) and a choice reaction time (recognizing whether the light was green or red and then responding to each one differently).

For Wundt, the goal of psychology was to understand consciousness, which Wundt defined as the sum total of all facts of which a person is conscious. Consciousness was built up through an individual’s experiences in the world. These experiences, according to Wundt, were composed of sensations, associations, and feelings. These were the elements of consciousness, and Wundt proposed studying those elements to discover the ways in which they were combined to form what he called psychical compounds or aggregates.
