About this item

This book focuses on integrating the causality of behavior as the first step toward integration of psychology as a science.  By coalescing the multiple causes of behavior, this volume offers a constructivist, rather than reductionist perspective illuminating factors such as self, free will, and nature vs. nurture.  The first comprehensive book on the causality of behavior, this volume reviews the multiple views of causality encompassing philosophy, relationism, neoconstructivism, biopsychosocial and dynamical systems theory, embodiment, and network  models.  Major areas covered are biological influences on development, development and free will, the use of free will in a psychotherapeutic setting.  Most important, the author presents a new model of development going beyond Piagetian and Eriksonian theories, carries theory into the realm of concrete clinical applications.
