THE HUMAN WHOLE
An Outline of the Person-oriented Psychology
by Robert C. Priddy
(formerly lectured in philosophy & social science at the University of Oslo - 1968-1984)
These pages aim to give an understanding of
human psychology in clear terms avoiding unnecessary terminology.
It is person-centered rather than 'technically' oriented and provides
an embracing frame of reference to aid in integrating personal understanding
of oneself and of others. Basic assumptions of modern Western psychology
are re-interpreted critically and brought into a holistic and universal
perspective, one partly developed in Vedanta. While 'lower' psychologies
deal mostly with bodily conditioning, egoistic desires, psychic illnesses
and are mainly past-oriented, 'higher' psychology focuses more on
psychic health, consciousness, human possibilities and challenges
of personal and spiritual development.
