History is a subject that enables us to understand the past, comprehend the present and foresee the future. It is a subject of great utility that enriches us and helps us to develop ourselves as mature human beings. Long ago Confucius, the great Chinese philosopher speaking on the utility of history in human life had observed,‘Study the past if you would define the future’. The importance of the subject has been stressed by different scholars at different points of time. In the words of Michael Crichton, one of the most important English novelists of the present generation, ‘If you don't know history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree’. Since ancient times history as a subject has been considered essential for the development of mankind and growth of civilizations.

History is a subject of great contemporary relevance. Everything in this world has a history and therefore history encompasses every aspect associated with human life. It is because of this reason that the scope of history has increased enormously. It is intimately inter connected with other disciplines like Economics, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, Religion, Philosophy, Legal disciplines, Scientific developments, Business and Management, Environment, Social and Gender issues. None of these subjects could be fully studied or analysed without history neither history could prosper without them. Now Historycannot be defined as a subject that is only confined to wars and battles, chronology of kings and queens or dynasties; it is a subject that incorporates every facet of human life. Thus it is a subject of interdisciplinary nature.

How do we learn, think and remember? What is the relationship between thinking and behaviour? How do we perceive the world, communicate or fall in love? Do animals think? How do children acquire language and knowledge of the world around them? Why do adolescents (and adults) conform to peer-group pressure? How do individuals function in work and social situations? What does ageing entail? What is the relationship between behaviour and the brain? How does disturbed or criminal behaviour develop, and what can be done to remedy it? These are just some of the questions psychology addresses.

 

Psychological scientists collect evidence to test their theories, which might consist of reaction times in lab tasks, answers to surveys, scores on psychological tests, records of everyday social interactions, observations of behaviour or what clients tell them during therapy, to give just a few examples.

 

The study of psychology overlaps with other disciplines in which an understanding of human behaviour is important—such as Anthropology, Architecture, Biology and Biomedical Science, Computer Science, Criminology, Design, Education, Law, Linguistics, Forensic science, Management,  Marketing, Philosophy, Political Science, Religious Studies, Sociology and Gender and Women’s Studies.
