Functionalism of Mind
Using the CSU Online Library, locate two articles, one discussing structuralism and one discussing functionalism. Compare
and contrast what you learned from the textbook with the information you found in your chosen articles. For example, does
finding an analysis from a functional perspective make the concept clearer to you? Does reading more about Titchener’s
background convince you that structuralism is a more solid methodology?
Be sure to include a summary of the major tenets of both schools of thought in your discussion.
Your essay should be a minimum of two pages in length; in addition to the two pages of content, include a title page and a
reference page. You are required to use your textbook and at least two other sources.
Please consider the following as you compose your article critique:
The article should be clearly related to the course topics.
You should identify the significant points of the article, and explain how the article relates to the course concepts.
You should present a thorough analysis and strong argument to support your interpretation of the course concepts.
The organization of the paper should clearly present logically arranged points.
Your writing should be clear and concise with no spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors.
The number of sources should meet or exceed any expressed assignment requirements, and the sources should be
peer-reviewed or academic in nature.
APA formatting guidelines should be used for reference entries and in-text citations.
