A New Unified Theory of Psychology

Predicament approximately psychology’s fragmentation isn't really new, yet there has for the earlier decade been expanding demands psychologists to recognize to the prices linked to fragmentation and to go looking for tactics to unify the discipline.

A New Unified idea of Psychology introduces a brand new procedure that addresses psychology’s present theoretical and philosophical problems. the recent thought includes 4 interlocking items that jointly provide—for the 1st time—a macro-level view that clarifies the character of psychology’s difficulties and provides a transparent solution to unify many of the components of the sector. The unified conception offers the sector of psychology with a well-defined subject material, permitting either educational psychologists may be capable of increase a shared language and conceptual foundation.


From the reviews:

". .. the writer takes at the super formidable problem of defining psychology, articulating conceptually its relatives with different sciences, deciding upon its key theoretical ideas, and resolving its a variety of schisms (research/practice, neuroscience/social technology, animal/human, bewildering array of likely nonoverlapping theories and therapies). .. He has a very good skill to explain, learn, and summarize in a number of pages gigantic and intricate parts of study (attributions, cognitive dissonance, behavioral types of melancholy. .. .. .. ) with no getting slowed down in learn info. .. I particularly loved the extra own info and anecdotes the ebook structure 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 was once overdue getting domestic for dinner one evening in grad university. and a few of his reviews on psychotherapy integration take as aspect of departure precise research of what he saw as undertaking director for a scientific trial of cognitive remedy in prevention of recurrent suicide makes an attempt that by no means made the ultimate released document of the research. .. All informed, it's no longer gentle studying, but when you get pleasure from puzzling over immense photograph issues you'll find loads of foodstuff for inspiration the following. " (Dave Haaga, American collage, September 2011)

"Like sociology and anthropology, psychology is outlined through incompatible competing faculties of concept. and can't be thought of a mature technology, simply because there isn't any feel within which each one new release of researchers builds upon the center analytical insights of earlier generations of researchers… This ebook is written for scientific and study psychologists, and consequently avoids this kind of mathematical version construction and axiomatization that's attribute of mature sciences… Henriques notes that it truly is nearly very unlikely to outline modern psychology simply because many psychologists think of psychology to be a concept of the workings of the brain, whereas others deny the thought of "mind" altogether, and restrict themselves to modeling saw habit. therefore, Henriques takes his first objective to be that of "locating" the sector ontologically. He argues that there's a Tree of information with 4 segments. the 1st is "Matter," that's studied through 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 by means of the social sciences. Henriques will pay specific awareness 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 by means of what he calls Behavioral funding conception, and the Mind-Culture junction is modeled by means of what he calls Justification idea. through Behavioral funding conception, Henriques capability basically the rational selection version of determination, organic and financial conception, even if he provides a size of complexity to human habit by means of announcing that Justification conception calls for a "rational emotional actor" that's not adequately modeled in average rational selection idea (p. , 46). i'd upload that Henriques additionally comprises online game idea as a part of Behavioral funding conception, just because decision-making whilst there are a number of brokers concerned calls for game-theoretic reasoning. This perspective is uncomplicated to fiscal concept. In biology, the extension of selection thought (e. g. , foraging idea) to video game idea was once pioneered by means of John Maynard Smith, Evolution and the idea of video games (Cambridge college Press, 1982), and now could be general in all of animal habit thought. In Henriques' cutting edge terminology, social interactions are ruled by means of an "Influence Matrix," that's a part of the psychology of the person that 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 collection of behaviors ruled through the impression Matrix… i feel Henriques' espousal of Behavioral funding concept is crucial integrating suggestion during this publication. If this precept on my own have been integrated uniformly all through study psychology, it'll offer a lot of the sought-for analytical core…A New Unified conception of Psychology is terrifically not easy, to the purpose of possibly being a brand new starting for psychology as a learn self-discipline. ” (Herb Gintis, Santa Fe Institute and critical eu college, September 2011)

“Offers a suite of nested frameworks that places varied elements of mental study and perform right into a coherent courting with one another. … it's also valuable that the ebook has very good transitions, with summaries usually reminding the readers the place they've been and awaiting the place they're going. … If i may train a graduate-level creation to Psychology, this could be the publication. If i may suggest one publication to colleagues distraught on the fragmented nature of the sector, this could be the ebook. ” (Eric P. Charles, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. fifty seven (26), July, 2012)

From the again Cover

Following the dying of the so-called grand theories provided via luminaries like Sigmund Freud, B. F. Skinner, and Carl Rogers, the sector of psychology mostly gave up its early aspirations to color a vast photograph of the human situation, and now the self-discipline focuses totally on empirical difficulties that experience a comparatively slim scope. The outcome has been a proliferation of fascinating findings without actual means to respond to immense questions or to generate a shared common knowing of the human situation. This ebook seeks to alter the established order and provides up a brand new unified conception of psychology that redefines the technology and the occupation and paints a brand new photo of human nature within the strategy.

Praise for
A New Unified concept of Psychology

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

Daniel B. Fishman, writer of The Case for Pragmatic Psychology,
Professor, Rutgers college

“As the sector of psychology has grown, so have the demanding situations of fragmentation and of misunderstandings. This courageous publication represents a noble quest to supply a wide, values-based, and clinical framework which holds the facility to prepare our paintings and stream us ahead in powerful, new methods. ”

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

“In this very bold publication, Henriques makes a robust case for why daring efforts are wanted within the fragmented realm of mental study and concept. even if diverse readers will most likely make varied judgments approximately how good Henriques has succeeded in his goals, it however is an act of highbrow bold which could possibly motivate psychologists to seem outdoor the slender confines of a unmarried laboratory paradigm and open their pondering to the best way to handle the total variety of human habit and event. ”

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

“Concise, erudite, and useful, this booklet is a manifesto that demanding situations psychology to maneuver previous fragmented domain names of data to a consilient framework, with a view to permit multi-disciplinary discourse and medical advances.

Other ways faster processing speed enables WM processing and storage are: making it possible to shift more rapidly between competing tasks (Kail & Hall, 2001); increasing the speed at which information is encoded into an LTM representation; and increasing the speed at which long-term memories are activated and retrieved. Faster processing speed also allows more efficient access to representations COGNITIVE PROCESSES HIGHLY RELATED WITH WORKING MEMORY 37 maintained in STM or the activated LTM pool.

Subsequent studies have replicated their original findings. For example, Sub, Oberauer, Wittmann, Wilhelm, and Schulze (2002) found general WM capacity to be highly related with general intelligence. A recent study reported that WM predicted 66% of the variance in g (Giofre, Mammarella, & Cornoldi, 2013). 93) with g, supplanting fluid reasoning as the primary, first-order factor (Colom, Rebollo, Palacios, Juan-Espinosa, & Kyllonen, 2004). The relationship is so strong that g is almost perfectly predicted by WM capacity, making WM capacity the best predictor of g (intelligence).

Thus, models of WM that focus only on the WM-STM connection may be missing valuable insights into the functioning and dysfunctioning of human memory systems. THE CONTROVERSY REGARDING WORKING MEMORY CAPACITY Most models represent WM as a unitary system where processing and storage compete for a limited, common pool of resources. This shared-resources position is known as the general capacity hypothesis (Engle, Cantor, & Carullo, 1992). On a moment-to-moment, flexible basis, resources are shared between the STM and LTM storage components and the executive component.
