Unity and Fragmentation in Psychology : The Philosophical and Methodological Roots of the Discipline Paperback / softback

Description

Psychology has always defined itself as a science and yet it has lacked the theoretical and methodological unity regarded as characteristic of the natural sciences.

Nicolo Gaj explores the topical question of unification in psychology, setting out a conceptual framework for considerations of unity and disunity, and exploring the evidence of its fragmentation.

He takes a critical look at the history of the most prominent attempts at unification, and at the desirability and feasibility of the whole project.

The book represents a unique and valuable attempt to address the issue of unification from a philosophical perspective, and via a combination of theoretical and empirical research.
