Psychology 101
Posted 10/7/08
Do you believe that philosopher Thomas Kuhn's 1962 critique implied psychology overall was in a pre-paradigm state, lacking the agreement on overarching theory found in mature sciences such as chemistry and physics.
And what do you think about the nature of therapeutic effectiveness and about the relevance of empirically examining psychotherapeutic strategies.

Well, I only took general psychology before.... but..... I think the theories were weak? as they jump to conclusions without any strong evidence / taking account on other possbile explanation. Even though they have some "law of psychology" when I look in wikipedia. hahaha.

No, it's the law of effect by Edward Thorndike.

1st of all phychology is part philosophy and part science. you cant "examine" the mind, personality, phyche, self, self actualization, and mental processes,existence, with scientific methods.

And with all philosophys, some may aggree and others may disagree. for we can always find a counter arguement for what ever someone puts out.

And i believe phychology is a respectible field that is and needs attention to. It helps us understand our mental processes and behavior better then any science.It also cures and understands diaseases of the mind in a way biology cant touch. so its far from a immature science. Its just a science with a philosophical perspective that is far more practicle and applicable to real life situations dealing with human beings then any science. peace over war
