The phenomenon introduced by Wundt into psychology was the experimental dimension of conducting exploration under controlled settings, presenting it as a feasible investigational science. His theory and thought structure description would further be enhanced and promoted by a staunch student, Titchener, who furthered the theorem under a psycho-representation of structuralism (McLeod, 2008).

Freud, as one of the pioneers of modern psychology, and the developer of one of the most comprehensive theories of personality, outlined new methods for understanding human behavior. His development of psychoanalysis blazed the trail for countless other psychologists and provided the building blocks for the development of a variety of theories. The evolution of modern psychology evolved from Freud’s deterministic theories and was further developed by his colleague Alfred Adler, who added a social component to the understanding of human behavior. Adler branched away from Freud’s fixation on sexual urges and used his own tragic experience to formulate the idea that humans are driven not by conflict, but instead by the fear of inadequacy. Adlerian therapy focused on using the relationship of the counselor to the patient and redeveloping one’s view of the past, existentialists built upon that foundation and incorporated philosophy to extend the theory of individualism further to encompass a broader theory of universal existence.

However, Wundt’s greatest contribution towards modern psychology was his method of introspection which discovered conscious mental processes by asking individuals to look deeper and state their sensations and perceptions. Even though psychologists today greatly criticize his method of introspection as unscientific, it considerably contributed to the development of psychology towards experiments in a more scientific manner. Functionalism arose from structuralism where it studies the function of conscious mind rather than the structure and it was focused on how our minds adapt to the changing environment.
