In a 1906 address to the American Psychological Association, Mary Whiton Calkins argued that structuralism and functionalism, the two major schools of thought at the time, were "too often opposed to the point of mutual exclusion." This early debate between structuralism and functionalism is just one example of the many differing theoretical outlooks in psychology. Each school of psychology represents some of the classic psychological theories and some of the most famous thinkers. Today, most contemporary psychologists hold eclectic perspectives that combine elements, ideas and theories from each school.
