Abstract:
It is widely recognized that Wilhelm Wundt’s accidental establishment of a psychological laboratory in Leipzig University marked the birth of modern scientific psychology. However, due to the habitual mindset arising from repeatedly emphasizing the significance of this historical event, its symbolic meaning gradually diminished to disappearance. Consequently, we are led astray on the issue of what psychology is. The only way out is to highlight the notion that psychology is a science and to analyze its historical dilemma so as to find a logical solution. Only on this basis can we transcend our habitual mindset and acquire the insight into what psychology is when we take it as a science.
