    That was mostly right. Wundt’s (pronounced with a ‘V’ not a ‘W’) approach was better known as Voluntarism which led to the school of thought known as Structuralism. Edward B. Tichener is known to be the founder of Structuralism. My credentials: I am a psychology major and I am reading, “An Introduction to the History of Psychology” right now studying for my final exam.
