Murray's thesis is that the Gestalt psychologists (primarily Koffka, Kohler and Wertheimer) anticipated the cognitive revolution of the late 1950s. It's an interesting idea and there are definitely too many similarities between their schools of thought. The book itself is pretty much average. I found the writing style a bit awkward.
