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.
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 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.
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
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
Psychology must postulate uniformity of interrelation of physical, physiological, and psychic processes.boris sidis
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
The kind of middle-class mentality which actuates both those responsible for strategy and government has little knowledge of the new Psychology and organizing ability of the totalitarian States. The forces we are fighting are governed neither by the old strategy nor follow the old tactics.Ernest Bevin
Hypnotism is undoubtedly the most important, the most fruitful and far-reaching method of experimental Psychology.william mcdougall
In joint scientific efforts extending over twenty years, initially in collaboration with J. C. Shaw at the RAND Corporation, and subsequently with numerous faculty and student colleagues at Carnegie-Mellon University, they have made basic contributions to artificial intelligence, the Psychology of human cognition, and list processing.allen newell
No refining of one's taste in matters of art or literature, no sharpening of one's powers of insight in matters of science or Psychology, can ever take the place of one's sensitiveness to the life of the earth. This is the beginning and the end of a person's true education.john cowper powys
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
The American farmer, whose holdings were not so extensive as those of the grandee nor so tiny as those of the peasant, whose Psychology was Protestant and bourgeois, and whose politics were petty-capitalist rather than traditionalist, had no reason to share the social outlook of the rural classes of Europe. In Europe land was limited and dear, while labor was abundant and relatively cheap; in America the ratio between land and labor was inverted.Richard Hofstadter
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
During the last hundred years parents and teachers have ceased to take childhood and adolescence for granted. They have attempted to fit education to the needs of the child, rather than to press the child into an inflexible educational mould. To this new task they have been spurred by two forces, the growth of the science of Psychology, and the difficulties and maladjustments of youth.Margaret Mead
Sedgwick has managed to convert pedestrian critical skills and little discernible knowledge in history, philosophy, Psychology, art or even pre-modern literature into a lucrative academic career.camille paglia
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
Mental synthesis of psychic content in the unity of a moment-consciousness is a fundamental principle of Psychology.boris sidis
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.
Investing is not a destination. It is an ongoing journey through its four continents - theory, history, Psychology and business.
There has been 32 isms since the advent of cubism, yet after all there are essentially the same two old strings, the Romantic and the Classical. We’ve just be confused by the storm. Science and Psychology have played a great part to say nothing of sex.
Memory is a mystery as deep as any that even Psychology can propound. [Natural] Philosophers might perhaps encourage themselves to attack the problem of the nature of memory by reflecting that after all the process may in some of its aspects be comparable with that of inheritance, but the student of genetics, as long as he can keep in close touch with a profitable basis of material fact, will scarcely be tempted to look for inspiration in psychical analogies.
The Bhagvad-Gita is the fountainhead of Eastern Psychology.
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.
Gnostic ideas had a considerable influence upon such idealists as Goethe , Novalis and Hegel . The theosophical movement of the 20th century with which Gnosticism has much in common, rightly claims the Gnostics as its spiritual ancestor. Jungian Psychology , which owes not a little to this movement, can be of some help in interpreting Gnostic mythology and may help to show that behind it there is a religious experience of a certain type.
