Natural Psychology

Natural Psychology explains human psychology (including mental distress) with elemental empirical neuroscience; accepted neuroscience proves that we need to reconsider the original debate in psychology. Psychology was founded on two competing thinking theories: Rationalists advocated neo-rationalism (the legacy of rationalist philosophers) and Associationists advocated associative thinking (the legacy of classical British empiricists and ancient Greek philosophers). Unfortunately, psychologists failed to integrate the two thinking theories before psychology migrated to a focus on behaviorism and associative thinking became lost knowledge. Natural Psychology explains rational consciousness, altruism and mental distress with a radically different perspective of elemental neuroscience. Natural Psychology is an elegant, parsimonious new paradigm of human psychology.
