Two chances to win The Psychology Book from DK

This competition is now closed and the winners have been contacted. The correct answer was James Cattell


We've got two copies of The Psychology Book from Dorling Kindersley to give away, kindly donated to us by the publisher (look out for a review in a forthcoming issue of The Psychologist).
"With the use of powerful and easy-to-follow images, quotations from all the major thinkers, and explanations that are easily understandable, this book demystifies hard-to-grasp concepts and shows how these have shaped our knowledge of the human mind. All the schools of psychology are covered from cognitive to behavioural psychology making this ideal for students or for anyone with a general interest in this popular area."
For your chance to win, answer the following question: Which psychologist bought the prestigious American journal Science in 1894, and then edited it for the next 50 years?

Post the answer to us on Twitter (mention @researchdigest and use the hashtag #thepsychbookcomp) or post the answer as a comment to this post (if you use the comment option, please provide a way for us to contact you).

At the end of the week, we'll pick at random one correct answer from all entries on Twitter and one correct answer from the comments section of this blog post. 

Good luck!

  33. Clearly, reading this blog has made me suspicious about psychological misdirection and manipulation so, instead of following my initial instinct and just copying everybody else's answer, I actually checked James McKeen Cattell out on the net. Can't say I'm a fan of some of his beliefs/opinions but it turns out that he was the owner and editor of Science as mentioned!
    Great blog by the way - been meaning to say that for ages as I lurk here...
