Example text

All these levels and types of inquiry appear necessary for the growth of psychology, and all sustain one another. PERSISTENT QUESTIONS IN PSYCHOLOGY The questions that psychology is now attempting to answer are often the same questions it has been trying to answer from its inception. In many cases, only the methods for dealing with these persistent questions have changed. We have already encountered one of psychology’s persistent questions: Is human behavior freely chosen or is it determined? Another concerns the essential aspect of human nature.

The psychoanalytic theories of Freud and Jung, for example, exemplify irrationalism because they claim that the true causes of behavior are unconscious and as such cannot be experienced rationally. The tension between conceptions of humans that stress intellect (reason) and those that stress the emotions or the unconscious mind (spirit) has appeared throughout psychology’s history and still manifests itself in contemporary psychology. 19 Copyright 2013 Cengage Learning.
