Author(s): Peter Ashworth

DESCRIPTION

Psychology and Human Nature problematizes what psychology usually takes for granted-the meaning of the psyche or ‘human nature’. The author provides a coherent account of many of the major schools of thought in psychology and its related disciplines, including: sociobiology and evolutionary psychology, psychoanalysis, cognitive psychology, radical behaviourism, existentialism, discursive psychology and postmodernism. For each approach he considers the claims or assumptions being made about ‘human nature’, especially regarding issues of consciousness, the self, the body, other people and the physical world.
