How Did Psychology Begin?

Answer

The beginning of the big idea occurred in the late 17th-century, when a French philosopher named Rene Descartes introduced the theory of dualism, which he used to describe how the mind and body work together - yet independently - to form one human life existence. He insisted that both functions worked together and could be used to explain various behaviors. That theory would be the basis for many years of study.
