Reviews:

From the reviews:

". .. the writer takes at the tremendous bold problem of defining psychology, articulating conceptually its kin with different sciences, deciding upon its key theoretical rules, and resolving its quite a few schisms (research/practice, neuroscience/social technological know-how, animal/human, bewildering array of possible nonoverlapping theories and therapies). .. He has a good skill to explain, learn, and summarize in a couple of pages large and intricate components of study (attributions, cognitive dissonance, behavioral versions of melancholy. .. .. .. ) with out getting slowed down in learn information. .. I particularly loved the extra own info and anecdotes the e-book layout gave him the gap 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 used to be past due getting domestic for dinner one evening in grad college. and a few of his reviews on psychotherapy integration take as element of departure targeted research of what he saw as venture director for a medical trial of cognitive treatment in prevention of recurrent suicide makes an attempt that by no means made the ultimate released document of the learn. .. All instructed, it's now not mild examining, but when you get pleasure from wondering colossal photograph issues you can find loads of foodstuff for suggestion right here. " (Dave Haaga, American collage, September 2011)

"Like sociology and anthropology, psychology is outlined through incompatible competing faculties of suggestion. and can't be thought of a mature technology, simply because there is not any experience within which each one iteration of researchers builds upon the center analytical insights of prior generations of researchers… This booklet is written for medical and study psychologists, and consequently avoids this sort of mathematical version development and axiomatization that's attribute of mature sciences… Henriques notes that it really is virtually most unlikely to outline modern psychology simply because many psychologists examine psychology to be a thought of the workings of the brain, whereas others deny the inspiration of "mind" altogether, and restrict themselves to modeling saw habit. therefore, 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 via biology. The 3rd is "Mind," that's the subject material of psychology, and the fourth, and maximum, is "Culture," studied through the social sciences. Henriques will pay particular consciousness to the 3 issues of junction among segments of the Tree of information. He says the Matter-Life junction is modeled via organic evolutionary idea, the Life-Mind junction is modeled via what he calls Behavioral funding idea, and the Mind-Culture junction is modeled by way of what he calls Justification thought. via Behavioral funding concept, Henriques capacity primarily the rational selection version of selection, organic and monetary thought, even supposing he provides a size of complexity to human habit via asserting that Justification conception calls for a "rational emotional actor" that's not correctly modeled in general rational selection thought (p. , 46). i'd upload that Henriques additionally contains online game idea as a part of Behavioral funding thought, just because decision-making whilst there are a number of brokers concerned calls for game-theoretic reasoning. This standpoint is simple to monetary thought. In biology, the extension of selection idea (e. g. , foraging thought) to online game concept was once pioneered via John Maynard Smith, Evolution and the idea of video games (Cambridge collage Press, 1982), and now could be commonplace in all of animal habit concept. In Henriques' leading edge terminology, social interactions are ruled by means of an "Influence Matrix," that's a part of the psychology of the person who regulates how the person pertains to others. Henriques stresses the emotional aspect of such interplay and avoids all online game theoretic reasoning in addition to any research of the function of incentives and payoffs within the selection of behaviors ruled through the impact Matrix… i feel Henriques' espousal of Behavioral funding thought is crucial integrating suggestion during this publication. If this precept on my own have been included uniformly all through study psychology, it is going to supply a lot of the sought-for analytical core…A New Unified thought of Psychology is terrifically not easy, to the purpose of probably being a brand new starting for psychology as a learn self-discipline. ” (Herb Gintis, Santa Fe Institute and relevant eu college, September 2011)

“Offers a collection of nested frameworks that places various components of mental study and perform right into a coherent dating with one another. … it's also invaluable that the publication has first-class transitions, with summaries often reminding the readers the place they've been and watching for the place they're going. … If i may educate a graduate-level advent to Psychology, this could be the ebook. If i may suggest one booklet to colleagues distraught on the fragmented nature of the sector, this could be the publication. ” (Eric P. Charles, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. fifty seven (26), July, 2012)

Summary

The end result has been a proliferation of fascinating findings without actual potential to reply to colossal questions or to generate a shared normal knowing of the human . This ebook seeks to alter the established order and gives up a brand new unified conception of psychology that redefines the technological know-how and the occupation and paints a brand new photograph of human nature within the technique.

Praise for
A New Unified thought of Psychology

“The box of psychology is understood for its paradoxical mixture of sweeping scope and ambitious micro-theories, at the one hand, and fragmentation and internecine squabbling, at the different. To this situation, any critical attempt to supply integration and harmony inside mental wisdom and knowing is heartily welcomed. And Henriques' attempt during this regard is not just critical, yet some of the most cogent, scholarly, subtle, fantastically reasoned, sincerely articulated, and accessibly written displays of a unified conception in psychology that i've got visible in my 50 years within the self-discipline. ”

Lawrence G. Calhoun, writer of Facilitating Post-Traumatic Growth,
Professor, college of North Carolina-Charlotte

“In this very bold ebook, Henriques makes a powerful case for why daring efforts are wanted within the fragmented realm of mental examine and thought. even supposing varied readers will most likely make various judgments approximately how good Henriques has succeeded in his goals, it however is an act of highbrow bold which could maybe motivate psychologists to seem outdoors the slender confines of a unmarried laboratory paradigm and open their pondering to easy methods to handle the complete diversity of human habit and adventure. ”

Paul L. Wachtel, writer of healing Communication,
Distinguished Professor, CUNY

“Concise, erudite, and sensible, this booklet is a manifesto that demanding situations psychology to maneuver prior fragmented domain names of information to a consilient framework, that allows you to let multi-disciplinary discourse and medical advances.
