Theoretical issues in psychology: an introduction. [Sacha Bem; Huibert Looren de Jong] -- This overview of the scientific and philosophical status of psychology provides a comprehensive guide to the theoretical issues at the heart of contemporary psychology.

    Book Description. Psychologists use a range of principles and theories, all of which view the person and the study of the person in very different ways. Theoretical Approaches in Psychology introduces and outlines the six main approaches and considers how each has helped psychologists understand human behaviour, thought and feeling. Humanistic Theories. Humanistic psychology theories began to grow in popularity during the s.

Some of the major humanist theorists included Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow.

    problems do exist, they are made to loom even larger because of the propensities of psychology and its sister disciplines to focus on the weak-nesses in humankind. Now let us imagine an-other planet where the inhabitants are caring, hopeful, and boundless in their psychological strengths. Their thoughts and feelings are clear, focused, and tranquil.   The 19th-century belief that psychology can be an integral discipline, which led to its institutionalization as an independent science, has been disconfirmed on every day of the years since its presumptive : Gregg Henriques.

A new case is made for cooperation; "groupthink" is found to be a "fiasco" three times over; male friendships are reconsidered; subjectivity is given a critical twist; habit is rethought as habitus ; pain is analyzed phenomenologically; and more. The two main theoretical issues in psychology, on science (the nature of scientific psychology) and mind, and its all-over structure, though, have been maintained – theoretical concepts of science (Chapters 1 and 2); the classical philosophy of science in a light historical presentation, that is, positivism and its critics ; the ensuing discussion about the reliability of science in terms of the realism.

This book is about theoretical and philosophical issues in psychology. As with its second edition, two questions stand out: what is science in general, and the science of the mind or psychology in particular, and what is mind, one of the most important objects of psychology?.

Twentieth-century philosophy of science has passed through a tumultuous development. This book is designed for the teacher and the student who are primarily interested in the science of psychology as a systematic, interpretive account of human behavior and who are interested in applying the science of psychology to current social issues.

In attempting to meet these requirements the authors have not found it necessary to keep two sets of readers in mind or to treat the subject. Theoretical Issues in Psychology is published as the discipline of psychology enters its (at least) third century.

In keeping with the journal's interdisciplinary mission, both psychology and philosophy are construed broadly to encompass a diversity of forms of inquiry such as conceptual, speculative, theoretical, empirical, clinical, historical, literary, and cultural research.

The Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology encourages and facilitates the informed, innovative, and critical exploration and discussion of psychological.

Outline of Theoretical Psychology discusses basic philosophical problems in the discipline and profession of psychology. The author addresses such topics as what it means to be human in psychology; how psychological knowledge is possible and what it consists of; the role of social justice in psychology; and how aesthetic experience could help us to understand the human : Palgrave Macmillan UK.

The confusion and barrenness of psychology is not to be explained by calling it a ‘young science.’ [ ] For in psychology there are experimental methods and conceptual confusion. The existence of the experimental method makes us think we have the means of solving the problems which trouble us; though problems and method pass one another by.— Ludwig Wittgenstein (, p)Sometimes Cited by: New up-to-date material on consciousness and evolutionary psychology.
