1. What was the Enlightenment attitude toward science and how did this influence psychology’s history?
The major impact on science in the Enlightenment was the request of confirmation of exploratory perceptions through the investigative system. Before the edification, exploratory information was recognized to be dependent upon what master said, a whole lot like stating "If the Bible said it was thus, it was so". Doctors utilized the books of Galen and others to perform surgeries and for their information of the human form, yet their graphs were regularly based upon dismemberments of creatures and extrapolations to people, so they were extremely mistaken.

So he tried to reach positive conclusions in theory by utilizing deliberate mistrust (where you reject all things which might even have the smallest plausibility to be false). The part of precise question was to have the ability to find authoritative replies in rationality, answers which are not dependent upon experimental proof but instead are dependent upon soundness and excuse for why alone. As I would like to think he was a dualist in that he accepted that there is the domain of actuality, and the domain of the soul.
4. What is the connection between Galton’s beliefs about intelligence and (a) eugenics, and (b) mental testing?
