What is psychology? What is educational psychology? How is it derived? Give its meanings. Describe the nature and scope of educational psychology.

Psychology is a mind and mental process. It is also the part of philosophy which studies the mind and mental process is a positive science. At the beginning it was the part of philosophy known as mental philosophy.

The word psychology is derived from two Greek words "psyche" and "logos" in which psyche means soul and logos means to study or science of. Therefore psychology means the science of soul search definition was put forward by Greek philosophers Plato and Aristotle. But such a definition of psychology was discarded because the soul is a metaphysical idea. It can neither be perceived nor imagined. The nature and function of the soul cannot be studied in scientific methods like observation and experiment in psychology. On this ground the definition that psychology is the science of soul has been rejected. Psychologists like Descartes defined psychology as the science of mind. It is also supported by Aristotle. But the word mind is as vague and ambiguous as soul. The mind is not a part of human anatomy. It is nothing but an assemblage of ideas. It stands for private personal and internal experience of men like pleasure and pain wishes and images, images , dreams and desires. No two psychologists agree about such a definition of mind. 

Moreover that definition of psychology had been rejected and discarded by other psychologists. Psychologists like the Scottish and McDougall could not agree with the mind definition of psychology. Sir William was put forward and another definition of psychology, psychology is the science of consciousness. But the mental life is not only conscious but also there are unconscious and subconscious mental levels. This consists of yours and subconscious Your mental levels also affect and influence the behaviour of men and animals in various ways without our knowledge and consciousness. Our conscious mental functions cannot be fully explained without the help of unconscious and subconscious mental processes. Consciousness constitutes only a part of our mental life and it does not include animal behaviour. Therefore psychology is the science of consciousness is an incomplete definition of which it is discarded and rejected by modern psychologists. 

Again psychology has also been defined as the science of experience. This is out and out a subjective definition as it does not take into consideration the outward or external behavior into account. Experience is what a man feels internally during any activity. Psychology deals with both inward and outward activities experience and behaviour so the definition is also incomplete. 

JB Watson the American psychologist and the founder of the school of behaviorism put forward the latest definition of psychology, psychology is the science of behaviour. Behaviour means actions and activities. JB Watson and other behaviorists wanted to make psychology as objective science and so they rejected experience as the subject matter of psychology. Psychology is a positive science of behaviour with two scientific methods: objective observation and experiment.

Show educational psychology is the science of engineering concerned with the application of psychological principles to the practical problems in the field of education.
