Psychology can be defined as the ‘Science of mind and behaviour’ – it’s about people and their cognitive, biological and social worlds. Many people argue that Psychology developed as a subject due to Darwin’s ideas. He suggested that all living things were related to one another, meaning that human beings can be studied scientifically, like the rest of the natural world.
