Four Psychologies Applied to Education: Freudian, Behavioral, Humanistic, Transpersonal.
Roberts, Thomas B., Ed.
This document presents 62 selected articles of psychology and education which demonstrate how educational theory and practice have changed and broadened to meet the need for new modes of teaching and learning. The writings, which show how psychologies can be complementary ways of understanding human behavior, are accompanied by both theoretical introductions and specific case studies. The book is divided into four major sections. In the first section, the writings illuminate the values and limitations of a Freudian approach to learning. The emergence of behavioral psychology as the dominant influence on modern education is explained in the second section. The third section explores humanistic psychology as a variation on behaviorism. The final section explores transpersonal psychology, and discusses the power and educational uses of ESP, imagination, meditation, and other current developments. (Author/JR)
