This chapter explores the rise of psychology in German and France during the nineteenth century, and the importation of German academic psychology to the United States through psychologists like E. B. Titchener. A new and distinctively American psychology began to emerge with influential scholars such as William James. Meanwhile, French psychology began to emerge with a greater focus on clinical challenges. In England, Charles Babbage explored the way in which a physical machine could simulate the thought process, sketching for the first time the impulse that would eventually be realized in the digital computer.
