"Functionalism An approach that concentrated on what the mind does, in other words the functions of mental activity, and the role of behavior in allowing people to adapt to their environments. The functionalist psychologists start with the fact that objects are perceived and “how” they are perceived. They asked “why” as well. This school became prominent in the1900s. It emerged as a reaction to Structuralism. Source: http://in.docsity.com/en-docs/School_of_Thoughts-Introduction_to_Psycology-Lecture_Handout_"
