PsyBlog has just started a series looking at whether the different findings, concepts and predictions of the various schools of psychology could ever be explained by one ‘grand theory’.
By drawing on excerpts from the existing literature, the series gives us a tour through a radical rethinking of how we explain the action of the mind.
Alternatively, perhaps a search for a ‘grand unifying theory’ is just physics envy at its most ridiculous, where psychology is just trying to ape the most absurd aspects of modern theoretical physics.
Whether it sounds like a grand vision or navel gazing to you, the series covers all angles, and there is more to come in the series.
