A New Unified Theory of Psychology

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

From the reviews:

". .. the writer takes at the super bold problem of defining psychology, articulating conceptually its family members with different sciences, choosing 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 great skill to explain, examine, and summarize in a couple of pages enormous and complex parts of study (attributions, cognitive dissonance, behavioral versions of melancholy. .. .. .. ) with out getting slowed down in research information. .. I particularly loved the extra own info and anecdotes the ebook 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 used to be overdue getting domestic for dinner one evening in grad college. and a few of his reviews on psychotherapy integration take as aspect of departure precise research of what he saw as venture director for a scientific trial of cognitive treatment in prevention of recurrent suicide makes an attempt that by no means made the ultimate released document of the research. .. All instructed, it's now not mild interpreting, but when you get pleasure from brooding about great photo themes you will discover loads of nutrition for idea right here. " (Dave Haaga, American collage, September 2011)

"Like sociology and anthropology, psychology is outlined by means of incompatible competing colleges of notion. and can't be thought of a mature technology, simply because there is not any feel within which every one iteration of researchers builds upon the middle analytical insights of past generations of researchers… This booklet is written for scientific and examine psychologists, and for this reason avoids this type of mathematical version construction and axiomatization that's attribute of mature sciences… Henriques notes that it's virtually most unlikely to outline modern psychology simply because many psychologists examine psychology to be a conception of the workings of the brain, whereas others deny the proposal of "mind" altogether, and restrict themselves to modeling saw habit. as a result, Henriques takes his first objective to be that of "locating" the sphere ontologically. He argues that there's a Tree of information with 4 segments. the 1st is "Matter," that's studied by means of physics, chemistry, geology, and astronomy. the second one is "Life," studied through biology. The 3rd is "Mind," that's the subject material of psychology, and the fourth, and maximum, is "Culture," studied by way of the social sciences. Henriques will pay targeted consciousness to the 3 issues of junction among segments of the Tree of data. He says the Matter-Life junction is modeled by means of organic evolutionary concept, the Life-Mind junction is modeled via what he calls Behavioral funding conception, and the Mind-Culture junction is modeled via what he calls Justification concept. by means of Behavioral funding thought, Henriques capability basically the rational selection version of determination, organic and monetary conception, even though he provides a measurement of complexity to human habit through announcing that Justification conception calls for a "rational emotional actor" that's not thoroughly modeled in average rational selection concept (p. , 46). i would upload that Henriques additionally comprises video 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 perspective is easy to monetary idea. In biology, the extension of selection idea (e. g. , foraging idea) to video game concept used to be pioneered through John Maynard Smith, Evolution and the idea of video games (Cambridge collage Press, 1982), and now could be usual in all of animal habit conception. In Henriques' leading edge terminology, social interactions are ruled via 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 video game theoretic reasoning in addition to any research of the function of incentives and payoffs within the selection of behaviors ruled by way of the impression Matrix… i think Henriques' espousal of Behavioral funding thought is an important integrating idea during this e-book. If this precept on my own have been included uniformly all through learn psychology, it's going to offer a lot of the sought-for analytical core…A New Unified idea of Psychology is terrifically hard, to the purpose of maybe being a brand new starting for psychology as a study self-discipline. ” (Herb Gintis, Santa Fe Institute and significant ecu college, September 2011)

“Offers a collection of nested frameworks that places diverse components of mental learn and perform right into a coherent dating with one another. … it's also valuable that the booklet has very good transitions, with summaries usually reminding the readers the place they've been and looking ahead to the place they're going. … If i'll train a graduate-level advent to Psychology, this may be the publication. If i may suggest one e-book to colleagues distraught on the fragmented nature of the sphere, this may be the e-book. ” (Eric P. Charles, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. fifty seven (26), July, 2012)

From the again Cover

Following the dying of the so-called grand theories provided by means of luminaries like Sigmund Freud, B. F. Skinner, and Carl Rogers, the sector of psychology principally gave up its early aspirations to color a huge photo of the human , and now the self-discipline focuses totally on empirical difficulties that experience a comparatively slim scope. The final result has been a proliferation of fascinating findings with out genuine ability to reply to significant questions or to generate a shared basic figuring out of the human situation. This booklet seeks to alter the established order and gives up a brand new unified idea of psychology that redefines the technology and the occupation and paints a brand new photo 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 team spirit inside of mental wisdom and knowing is heartily welcomed. And Henriques' attempt during this regard is not just critical, yet the most cogent, scholarly, subtle, fantastically reasoned, essentially articulated, and accessibly written shows of a unified conception in psychology that i've got visible in my 50 years within the self-discipline. ”
