Psychology

This paper makes the point that psychiatry is unable to heal mentally ill persons because it does not factor the element of choice into its perception of the causation of mental disorders. It says that human beings are conscious beings, beings that make choices; it says that we must see people as choice making persons and then help the mentally ill, whose mental illness it says has something to do with inherited biological constitution and poor choice, choose self-love and love for all persons if we want to heal them. Psychiatry and psychology are currently working very hard to transform…
This paper began with an observation that black folk all over the world seem motivated by desire to seem important and prestigious in people's eyes. It says that this drive tends to make them self-centered and unable to care for social interests. Therefore, the drive for personal prestige is problematical. It tried to understand why black folk seem to have this arrested development, arrested at narcissistic level of being instead of the fully adult level of being that serves social good. It posited an existential explanation of the phenomenon. Its argument is that human beings perceive their lives as meaningless…
