Bird's Eye Views

Myron M. Arons. (2000*). Self, Multiple Selves and the Illusion of Separate Selfhood
"Self" is a central concept in humanistic, transpersonal, and postmodern psychologies. This essay explores these different perspectives on the self in the context of discussion of the different agendas of the humanistic (with a nod to existential), transpersonal, and postmodern/constructivist approaches.

Charles Hampden-Turner. (1981). Maps of the Mind: Charts and Concepts of the Mind and Its Labyrinths. New York: Macmillan.

Some reflections on the basic premises of humanistic psychology and social science offered to the Association for Humanist Sociology.

Arthur Warmoth. (2000). Social Constructionist Epistemology.

Social constructionist epistemology is a point of view which has become important in philosophy and the humanities, as well as in psychology. It was anticipated by the philosophical critique of positivist philosophy of science developed by the founders of humanistic psychology, and it offers new ways to look at the contemporary relevance of the field. Includes an annotated bibliography.

Christine H. Farber. (2000). Existential-Phenomenological Contributions to a Cultural Psychology

"Energized by perspectives such as feminism, deconstructionism, and post-structuralism, debates about the role of culture in psychological issues continue to issue forth new ideas. I submit that existential-phenomenological (e-p) psychology, has the potential to not only contribute to, but to ground some of these ideas and debates."

Harris Friedman. (2000*) Toward Developing Transpersonal Psychology as a Scientific Field

A comprehensive look at the issues involved in establishing transpersonal.psychology as a scientific discipline. A distinction is made between transpersonal psychology, transpersonal studies, and spiritual folk traditions and religions.

Microsystems in their macrocontext.

Chris Lofting. (2000*) "Ethical Considerations in Startrek: Dependencies on the Miraculous and the Role of the Humanist Perspective in Technology"

Technology-biased individuals tend toward a single-mindedness that requires miraculous interventions to save ethics. The humanist perspective offers an alternative.

Chris Lofting. (2000*) "Humanist Psychology : The Future?"

A view of the humanist future from a symbolic logic/systems perspective.

Arthur Warmoth. (2001). Culture, Somas, and Human Development. (In press, Somatics Magazine-Journal)

Culture is considered as the context of human development, using Erikson's stages to suggest that the developmental process involves increasing involvement in and responsibility for maintaining and shaping culture as a symbolic system.
