Wertheimer, Max, 1880-1943

Max Wertheimer (1880-1943) was a German psychologist, philosopher and co-founder of Gestalt psychology. From 1912 to 1918 at the university in Frankfurt, he formulated the Gestalt theory with Wolfgang Köhler and Kurt Koffka. In 1933 Wertheimer emigrated to the United States, where he assumed a professorship at the New School for Social Research in New York City. He was also a guest lecturer at Princeton and Columbia universities. He wrote a number of essays and articles, and from 1921 to 1935 edited and published the multilanguage journal Psychologische Forschung. His only book-length work, Productiuve Thinking, was published posthumously in 1945.
