Who are the people involved?
Gestalt psychology originates in the works of Max Wertheimer, Kurt Koffka and Wolfgang Köhler as a response to Titchener’s structuralism. Structuralists believed that all experiences can be broken down into individual sensations and emotions. Propagators of Gestalt school of thought psychological events cannot be broken down into smaller parts. The famous saying ‘whole is greater than the sum of its parts’ was born out of their work.
