A Brief History of the Society Logo

Hannah Steinberg is Professor Emeritus of Psychopharmacology,University College London, and Visiting Professor, Middlesex University.
Soon after the end of the Second World War the Society embarked upon the now widespread love affair with the logo, an abbreviation of logo type, from the Greek logos (‘word’) and tupos (‘image’). Since the word psychology derives from a combination of psyche (from the Greek for ‘soul’) and logos, Psyche, the character from Greek mythology, naturally came to be combined with the Society’s name to make a pleasingly simple composition.
