Abstract

This paper is a discussion of the state of the history of psychology course in the undergraduate curriculum. Included are the results of a survey conducted among Canadian universities psychology departments. It is concluded that the rise of critical (rather than celebratory of "whiggish") historiography appears to have led to a "backlash" among some psychologists, and to a decline in the prevalence of the course in the undergraduate curriculum.
