Hardly any other nation has done more for the development of psychology as an empirical science. British philosophers, especially J. Locke and D. Hume, have introduced empiricism, followed by the associationism of David Hartley, Thomas T. Reid, J. Stewart, and Thomas Brown, and in the 19th century by James Mill, J. S. Mill, and Alexander Bain. John Stuart Mill’s ideas were further developed by W. Wundt in Germany, Bain’s ideas have influenced W. James and E. L. Thorndike in the United States, and LP. Pavlov’s and V. Bekhterev’s conditioning is undoubtedly indebted to British associationists.
