Psychoanalysis and behaviorism as the first and second force in psychology have dominated the field since its earliest beginnings and continues to be the major contributors to psychology. My future writing is going to argue that psychoanalysis that is 17 years the senior to behaviorism is the first force and not the other way around. When a discussion arises surrounding the topic of psychoanalysis, there is almost a single name that comes to mind in Sigmund Freud, the accredited founder of psychoanalysis. With neo-freudianism and the challenge of the basic tenets of psychoanalysis arises a new force in psychology namely behaviorism. The accredited founder of behaviorism is John B. Watson, who received notable assistance in building behaviorism into the force it is today from the likes of Ivan Pavlov, Edwin Twitmyer, B. F. Skinner, Albert Bandura, Clark Hull, Edwin Guthrie, and Edward Tolman.
