In this assignment you will demonstrate that you have met these aims by conducting a piece of critical discourse analysis that will involve you – deeply – in historical understanding of one major event in the history of psychology; the Little Albert experiment. To complete the discourse analysis, you will need to come to terms with a range of epistemological assumptions within the experiment itself, the historical writing about it, and discourse analysis itself. You will be exposed to historical research showing how treatment of Little Albert has varied across time in psychology textbooks as major movements – such as behaviourism, cognitivism, and neuroscience – have maxed and waned. For your paper, you will examine the discourse in textbooks about Little Albert. The minimum number of textbooks that you must consider is four; there is no maximum. (You are also encouraged to subject Pioneers of Psychology to discourse analysis). This is a 2500 word count for an MSc conversion in psychology, due 20.04.2018.
