The History of Cognition in Psychotherapy

  • Albert Ellis


The history of cognition in psychotherapy starts with the history of cognition in self-help philosophy. For although the early philosophers concentrated on explaining nature, the world, and—incidentally—the nature of humans in the world, some of the most outstanding Eastern and Western philosophers focused on the nature of humans and how they could help themselves by understanding the cognitions that led them to become “emotionally” disturbed and how they could use this understanding to overcome their disturbances. Significantly enough, the earliest major philosophers that we now remember and who still have a rather profound influence over us were greatly concerned with these problems—and not merely with those of comprehending nature and the world.
