Mill (1806 – 1873) Had a Strong Influence over Binet's Work on Human Intelligence

When the Great French Psychologist, Alfred Binet (1857 – 1911) received his degree in law in the year 1878, he started studying science at Sorbonne. Fortunately or unfortunately, he was not somehow happy with his formal schooling system and started studying psychology of his own. Within a little time span, he became absorbed with the theories proposed by John Stuart Mill (1806 – 1873). Mill postulated that the function of human intelligence can be explained with the help of law of associationism. Binet soon understood the drawbacks of the theories proposed by Mill, but throughout his journey Mill had left a great influence all over.
