Wilhelm Maximilian Wundt (16 August 1832 – 31 August 1920) wis a German pheesician, pheesiologist, filosofer, an professor, kent the day as ane o the foondin figurs o modren psychology. Wundt, wha notit psychology as a science apairt frae biology an filosofie, wis the first person tae ever caw himsel a psychologist.[6] He is widely regairdit as the "faither o experimental psychology".[7][8] In 1879, Wundt foondit the first formal laboratory for psychological research at the Varsity o Leipzig.
