Advancing the history of psychology

I’ve been enjoying the Advances in the History of Psychology blog lately, which is full of interesting snippets about the past and often digs into the historical background of contemporary hot topics.

For example, here’s an interesting bibliography about psychoactive drug use in psychology, and here’s another about Benjamin Franklin’s interest in ‘electrotherapy’.

It’s run by the same people who produce the completely invaluable Classics in the History of Psychology archive, that has a huge website with some of the most important texts from psychology’s colourful past.

Both are excellent, and I look forward to reading more.
