Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Historiography of modern psychology: aims, resources, approaches‎" by Josef Brožek, Ludwig Jakob Pongratz (C.J. Hogrefe, 1980), p. 225: "The birth certificate reads: No. 628. In the year one thousand eight hundred and twenty two, a boy was born at 2:30 pm in the afternoon of August 16th and baptized on August 26: Wilhelm Maximilian. Parents are: Maximilian Wundt, local protestant minister and his wife Marie Friederike nee Arnold." NB: There seems to be a misprint in the book: the year "twenty two" should be 'thirty two.'
