Caption: Wolfgang Kohler (1887-1967), German psychologist. Kohler studied for his doctorate under Max Planck and Carl Stumpf at the University of Berlin. He went on to make key contributions to the development of gestalt psychology. This 'whole form' (gestalt) approach attempted to define principles of perception. Kohler's work at a primate research station in Tenerife led to 'The Mentality of Apes' (1917). He then worked for 15 years at the Berlin Psychological Institute, becoming its director. He left Germany for the USA in 1935 over his opposition to the Nazi regime. He then worked as a professor in the USA for over 20 years until his retirement.
