The New Age movement includes elements of older spiritual and religious traditions ranging from atheism and monotheism through classical pantheism, naturalistic pantheism, pandeism and panentheism to polytheism combined with science and Gaia philosophy; particularly archaeoastronomy, astronomy, ecology, environmentalism, the Gaia hypothesis, psychology, and physics.
In the Germany of the l920s, the Weimar Republic, both organismic biology and Gestalt Psychology were part of a larger intellectual trend that saw itself as a protest movement against the increasing fragmentation and alienation of human nature. The entire Weimar culture was characterized by an antimechanistic outlook, a "hunger for wholeness". Organismic biology, Gestalt Psychology, ecology, and, later on, general systems theory all grew out of this holistic zeitgeist.fritjof capra
On the contrary, it's because somebody knows something about it that we can't talk about physics . It's the things that nobody knows anything about that we can discuss. We can talk about the weather; we can talk about social problems; we can talk about Psychology; we can talk about international finance gold transfers we can't talk about, because those are understood so it's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!richard feynman
The Psychology of Delay. Some of the causes of delay in coming to economic decisions in our country seem to lie in the psychological realm. There is such a thing as the Psychology of power which motivates people: power of control and patronage, power to delay an application, power to hold up a file, power to keep people waiting in an ante-room, all of which are consciously or subconsciously treated as symbols of prestige and hallmarks of importance.j. r. d. tata
...People that don’t have any interest in the Psychology of nuance, who need everything to be in their face, who don’t want to analyze... those aren’t the people I romanticize about dressing.marc jacobs
Economists tell us that the 'price' of an object and its 'value' have very little or nothing to do with one another. 'Value' is entirely subjective economic value, anyway while 'price' reflects whatever a buyer is willing to give up to get the object in question, and whatever the seller is willing to accept to give it up. Both are governed by the Law of Marginal Utility, which is actually a law of Psychology, rather than economics. For government to attempt to dictate a 'fair price' betrays complete misunderstanding of the entire process.l. neil smith
I majored in Psychology in college. I was going to be a child psychologist.gloria estefan
I wished, by treating Psychology like a natural science, to help her to become one.william james
Psychology is the science of psychic states both as to content and form, regarded from an objective standpoint, and brought in relation to the living corporeal individual.boris sidis
G. K. Chesterton wrote Child Psychology and Nonsense .
The Adlerians, in the name of “individual Psychology,” take the side of society against the individual. ... Adler’s later thought succumbs to the worst of his earlier banalization. It is conventional, practical, and moralistic. “Our science ... is based on common sense.” Common sense, the half-truths of a deceitful society, is honored as the honest truths of a frank world.alfred adler
Hypnotism is undoubtedly the most important, the most fruitful and far-reaching method of experimental Psychology.william mcdougall
If the inner psychic ground of our individual appearance were not always the same, there could be no science of Psychology, which qua science relies on a psychic “inside we are all alike,” just as the science of physiology and medicine relies on the sameness of our inner organs. ... The monstrous sameness and pervasive ugliness so highly characteristic of the findings of modern Psychology, and contrasting so obviously with the enormous variety and richness of overt human conduct, witness to the radical difference between the inside and the outside of the human body.hannah arendt
For a parallel to the lesson of atomic theory regarding the limited applicability of such customary idealizations, we must in fact turn to quite other branches of science, such as Psychology , or even to that kind of epistemological problems with which already thinkers like Buddha and Lao Tzu have been confronted, when trying to harmonize our position as spectators and actors in the great drama of existence.niels bohr
The reader can test his own Psychology by asking himself whether he would consider, in retrospect, the selling at 156 in 1925 and buying back at 109 in 1931 was a satisfactory operation. Some may think that an intelligent investor should have been able to sell out much closer to the high of 381 and to buy back nearer the low of 41. If that is your own view you are probably a speculator at heart and will have trouble keeping to true investment precepts while the market rushes up and down.benjamin graham
I would in fact tend to have more confidence in the outcome of a democratic decision if there was a minority that voted against it, than if it was unanimous… Social Psychology has amply shown the strength of this bandwagon effect.jürgen habermas
Marx's father became a Christian when Marx was a little boy, and some, at least, of the dogmas he must have then accepted seem to have born fruit in his son's Psychology.karl marx
The crucial question which confronts us in Psychology and other aspects of the science of man is precisely this chasm between what is abstractly true and what is existentially real for the given living person.rollo may
In Walt Whitman democracy is carried into Psychology and morals . The various sights, moods, and emotions are given each one vote; they are declared to be all free and equal, and the innumerable commonplace moments of life are suffered to speak like the others. Those moments formerly reputed great are not excluded, but they are made to march in the ranks with their companions plain foot-soldiers and servants of the hour.george santayana
The psycho-physiological hypothesis is both inductively and deductively the sine qua non of the science of Psychology.boris sidis
The fact that Psychology postulates an external material world and studies it in so far as it comes to be reflected in consciousness, points to another postulate which Psychology must assume in addition, namely, the existence of an inner world consciousness.boris sidis
For it needs little skill in Psychology to be sure that a highly gifted girl who had tried to use her gift for poetry would have been so thwarted and hindered by other people, so tortured and pulled asunder by her own contrary instincts, that she must have lost her health and sanity to a certainty.virginia woolf
All the lessons of psychiatry, Psychology, social work, indeed culture, have taught us over the last hundred years that it is the acceptance of differences, not the search for similarities which enables people to relate to each other in their personal or family lives.
Herbert A. Simon's scientific output goes far beyond the disciplines in which he has held professorships: political science, administration, Psychology and information sciences. He has made contributions in the fields of science theory, applied mathematics, statistics, operations research, economics and business and public administration (and), in all areas in which he has conducted research, Simon has had something of importance to say."
Freud’s link to a Hegelian tradition with which he otherwise shares little is in the deliberate renunciation of common sense. “A person who professes to believe in commonsense Psychology,” Freud is reported saying once, “and who thinks psychoanalysis is ‘far-fetched’ can certainly have no understanding of it, for it is common sense which produces all the ills we have to cure.”
Although Psychology and pedagogy have always maintained the belief that a child is a happy being without any conflicts, and have assumed that the sufferings of adults are the results of the burdens and hardships of reality, it must be asserted that just the opposite is true. What we learn about the child and the adult through psychoanalysis shows that all the sufferings of later life are for the most part repetitions of these earlier ones, and that every child in the first years of life goes through and immeasurable degree of suffering.
Only a few years ago one could observe, at least among German psychologists, a quite pessimistic mood. After the initial successes of experimental Psychology in its early stages, it seemed to become clearer and clearer that it would remain impossible for experimental method to press on beyond the Psychology of perception and memory to such vital problems as those with which psychoanalysis was concerned. Weighty 'philosophical' and 'methodological' considerations seemed to make such an undertaking a priori impossible.
I believe that Anarchism and Socialism are both needed in human society that they represent two strong trends in human Psychology the trend toward liberty and individual variation, and the trend toward cooperation, sympathy and solidarity , and that therefore they should work together. Socialism greatly needs Anarchism as a critic and to keep it from sacrificing the individual and his originality to the domination of the mass.
