From the reviews:

". .. the writer takes at the super formidable problem of defining psychology, articulating conceptually its family members with different sciences, opting for its key theoretical ideas, and resolving its a number of schisms (research/practice, neuroscience/social technological know-how, animal/human, bewildering array of probably nonoverlapping theories and therapies). .. He has an amazing skill to explain, research, and summarize in a number of pages huge and intricate parts of analysis (attributions, cognitive dissonance, behavioral types of melancholy. .. .. .. ) with out getting slowed down in learn info. .. I specifically loved the extra own information and anecdotes the publication structure gave him the distance to incorporate -- e. g. , improvement of the "Justification Hypothesis" because the "joint point" among brain and tradition takes to the air from his reflections on why he was once overdue getting domestic for dinner one evening in grad institution. and a few of his reviews on psychotherapy integration take as aspect of departure special research of what he saw as venture director for a medical trial of cognitive remedy in prevention of recurrent suicide makes an attempt that by no means made the ultimate released record of the learn. .. All informed, it's now not gentle interpreting, but when you take pleasure in wondering vast photo subject matters you'll find loads of nutrients for inspiration the following. " (Dave Haaga, American collage, September 2011)

"Like sociology and anthropology, psychology is outlined by means of incompatible competing faculties of concept. and can't be thought of a mature technology, simply because there is not any experience within which each one new release of researchers builds upon the middle analytical insights of past generations of researchers… This ebook is written for medical and learn psychologists, and therefore avoids this kind of mathematical version construction and axiomatization that's attribute of mature sciences… Henriques notes that it truly is virtually very unlikely to outline modern psychology simply because many psychologists contemplate psychology to be a concept of the workings of the brain, whereas others deny the proposal of "mind" altogether, and restrict themselves to modeling saw habit. accordingly, Henriques takes his first aim to be that of "locating" the sphere ontologically. He argues that there's a Tree of data with 4 segments. the 1st is "Matter," that is studied by way of physics, chemistry, geology, and astronomy. the second one is "Life," studied by means of biology. The 3rd is "Mind," that's the subject material of psychology, and the fourth, and optimum, is "Culture," studied through the social sciences. Henriques will pay specified consciousness to the 3 issues of junction among segments of the Tree of data. He says the Matter-Life junction is modeled through organic evolutionary concept, the Life-Mind junction is modeled via what he calls Behavioral funding concept, and the Mind-Culture junction is modeled through what he calls Justification conception. through Behavioral funding concept, Henriques skill primarily the rational selection version of selection, organic and financial thought, even though he provides a size of complexity to human habit through announcing that Justification idea calls for a "rational emotional actor" that's not competently modeled in normal rational selection thought (p. , 46). i'd upload that Henriques additionally contains video game thought as a part of Behavioral funding idea, just because decision-making while there are a number of brokers concerned calls for game-theoretic reasoning. This viewpoint is uncomplicated to fiscal conception. In biology, the extension of determination conception (e. g. , foraging concept) to video game conception used to be pioneered through John Maynard Smith, Evolution and the speculation of video games (Cambridge college Press, 1982), and now could be common in all of animal habit thought. In Henriques' leading edge terminology, social interactions are ruled by way of an "Influence Matrix," that is a part of the psychology of the person who regulates how the person pertains to others. Henriques stresses the emotional facet of such interplay and avoids all video game theoretic reasoning in addition to any research of the function of incentives and payoffs within the number of behaviors ruled through the effect Matrix… i think Henriques' espousal of Behavioral funding idea is an important integrating inspiration during this booklet. If this precept by myself have been included uniformly all through study psychology, it'll offer a lot of the sought-for analytical core…A New Unified concept of Psychology is terrifically hard, to the purpose of maybe being a brand new starting for psychology as a examine self-discipline. ” (Herb Gintis, Santa Fe Institute and crucial ecu college, September 2011)

“Offers a collection of nested frameworks that places varied elements of mental study and perform right into a coherent dating with one another. … it's also necessary that the publication has first-class transitions, with summaries usually reminding the readers the place they've been and expecting the place they're going. … If i'll train a graduate-level advent to Psychology, this is able to be the e-book. If i may suggest one booklet to colleagues distraught on the fragmented nature of the sector, this could be the booklet. ” (Eric P. Charles, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. fifty seven (26), July, 2012)

En effet, des expériences l’ont amené à conclure que le fait de ne pas renforcer un comportement négatif ne conduit pas nécessairement à son extinction. De plus, cette loi a été complétée par Lewin (1935) qui a constaté que la conséquence favorable, en l’occurrence le succès, augmente chez l’individu la confiance en soi, voire même le niveau d’aspiration, c’est-à-dire la performance qu’il s’estime capable de réaliser, lorsqu’il décide d’agir ou de réagir.
