A New Unified Theory of Psychology

Hindrance approximately psychology’s fragmentation isn't 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 formidable problem of defining psychology, articulating conceptually its kinfolk with different sciences, deciding upon its key theoretical rules, and resolving its a number of schisms (research/practice, neuroscience/social technological know-how, animal/human, bewildering array of likely nonoverlapping theories and therapies). .. He has a good skill to explain, research, and summarize in a number of pages sizeable and intricate parts of analysis (attributions, cognitive dissonance, behavioral types of melancholy. .. .. .. ) with no getting slowed down in research info. .. I particularly loved the extra own info and anecdotes the e-book layout 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 university. and a few of his reviews on psychotherapy integration take as aspect of departure specified 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 file of the research. .. All informed, it's now not mild examining, but when you get pleasure from puzzling over sizeable photograph subject matters you'll find loads of foodstuff for concept right here. " (Dave Haaga, American collage, September 2011)

"Like sociology and anthropology, psychology is outlined through incompatible competing colleges of concept. and can't be thought of a mature technology, simply because there isn't any experience within which every one iteration of researchers builds upon the center analytical insights of earlier generations of researchers… This booklet is written for medical and study psychologists, and for this reason avoids this kind of mathematical version construction and axiomatization that's attribute of mature sciences… Henriques notes that it's nearly most unlikely to outline modern psychology simply because many psychologists give some thought to psychology to be a conception of the workings of the brain, whereas others deny the inspiration of "mind" altogether, and restrict themselves to modeling saw habit. accordingly, Henriques takes his first objective 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's studied through physics, chemistry, geology, and astronomy. the second one is "Life," studied by way of biology. The 3rd is "Mind," that is the subject material of psychology, and the fourth, and maximum, is "Culture," studied by means of the social sciences. Henriques can pay distinct cognizance to the 3 issues of junction among segments of the Tree of data. He says the Matter-Life junction is modeled via organic evolutionary thought, the Life-Mind junction is modeled through what he calls Behavioral funding thought, and the Mind-Culture junction is modeled through what he calls Justification conception. by means of Behavioral funding concept, Henriques capacity basically the rational selection version of determination, organic and financial conception, even though he provides a measurement of complexity to human habit by means of asserting that Justification thought calls for a "rational emotional actor" that's not appropriately modeled in common rational selection conception (p. , 46). i'd upload that Henriques additionally comprises video game concept as a part of Behavioral funding idea, just because decision-making whilst there are a number of brokers concerned calls for game-theoretic reasoning. This standpoint is simple to fiscal idea. In biology, the extension of determination concept (e. g. , foraging conception) to online game idea used to be pioneered by way of John Maynard Smith, Evolution and the speculation of video games (Cambridge collage Press, 1982), and now's normal in all of animal habit concept. In Henriques' leading edge terminology, social interactions are ruled by way 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 facet of such interplay and avoids all online game theoretic reasoning in addition to any research of the function of incentives and payoffs within the number of behaviors ruled by way of the impression Matrix… i feel Henriques' espousal of Behavioral funding concept is crucial integrating notion during this booklet. If this precept by myself have been included uniformly all through examine psychology, it should offer a lot of the sought-for analytical core…A New Unified conception of Psychology is terrifically demanding, to the purpose of possibly being a brand new starting for psychology as a study self-discipline. ” (Herb Gintis, Santa Fe Institute and important ecu college, September 2011)

“Offers a collection of nested frameworks that places assorted components of mental study and perform right into a coherent dating with one another. … it's also worthwhile that the publication has very good transitions, with summaries usually reminding the readers the place they've been and waiting for the place they're going. … If i may educate a graduate-level advent to Psychology, this may be the booklet. If i may suggest one booklet to colleagues distraught on the fragmented nature of the sector, this may 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 through luminaries like Sigmund Freud, B. F. Skinner, and Carl Rogers, the sector of psychology mostly gave up its early aspirations to color a wide photograph of the human , and now the self-discipline focuses totally on empirical difficulties that experience a comparatively slim scope. The end result has been a proliferation of fascinating findings without actual potential to reply to huge questions or to generate a shared common figuring out of the human situation. This e-book seeks to alter the established order and gives up a brand new unified conception of psychology that redefines the technological know-how and the career and paints a brand new photograph of human nature within the approach.

Praise for
A New Unified idea of Psychology

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

Professor, college of North Carolina-Charlotte

“In this very formidable publication, Henriques makes a powerful case for why daring efforts are wanted within the fragmented realm of mental examine and conception. even though various readers will most probably make diverse judgments approximately how good Henriques has succeeded in his goals, it however is an act of highbrow bold which can probably encourage psychologists to seem open air the slender confines of a unmarried laboratory paradigm and open their considering to how you can tackle the complete diversity of human habit and event. ”

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

17,18 Resolution of the issue as to whether dietary flavonoid intake independently reduces cardiovascular outcomes therefore awaits further population-based studies and may only be fully resolved through a large-scale intervention trial. The question as to whether alcoholic beverages that are rich in flavonoids can further influence any associations between flavonoid intake and CVD is not yet supported by epidemiological evidence. 4 ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE PREFERENCE AND CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE If the polyphenolic flavonoids in alcoholic beverages are having a significant influence on atherogenesis, we would also expect consistent differences in cardiovascular outcomes according to alcoholic beverage preference given the substantially higher levels of polyphenolic compounds seen in red wine.

However, any effects of alcoholic beverage polyphenolics on endothelial function need to be understood in the context of possible effects of alcohol to also modulate endothelial function. 91 After 3 months of abstinence, however, the ex-drinkers had significantly impaired endothelial function when compared to the control group despite being nonsmokers, normotensive, normocholesterolemic, and free of cardiovascular disease. 92 Of the 54 subjects who drank alcohol, none drank wine, 24 drank beer, 14 drank sake, 4 drank Japanese vodka, and 4 drank whisky.
