    a collective group of individual components can behavior be accurately and effectively addressed. The evolution of psychology emerging as a science stemmed from the concept of behaviorism and what  motivated conduct in certain situations. Was humanity merely bound by determinism without the ability to choose, or did he harbor free will with which to guide his own existence?  These ponderings ultimately gave way to a more concrete concept termed cognitive science from which the basis of psychology inevitably developed (Schultz et al, 2007). II. TWO KEY  SCIENTISTS Experimental psychology emerged in Germany rather than somewhere else because of Edward Bradford Titchener, the ground-breaking theorist who sought to analyze the  minds structure, While Titchener (1898) may have been a student of Wundt (1897) -- widely credited with developing structuralism within psychology -- he ultimately headed in a different direction  as to his opinions about the way Wundt (1897) approached important components of his theories. Both men shared an interest in experimental and conscious experience, however, it appears as  though this is where the similarities stopped. The extent to which Titchener (1898) did not agree with Wundts (1897) approach to introspection was significant, inasmuch as through his theory  of structuralism he sought to uncover the contents - rather than functions - of consciousness. Compared with Wundts (1897) emphasis upon self-organizing apperception, Titchener (1898) looked toward fixed components  of consciousness. Additional aspects of the experiential process Titchener (1898) approached separately from Wundt (1897) includes his assertion that every experience produces a sum total of consciousness for that  specific time, while the collective total of life experiences equate to mind. Titchener (1898) also disagreed with the process by which Wundt (1897) arrived at his findings, noting how
