Summary
"In this intriguing and readable book, J.D. Keehn introduces the basics of psychoanalytic and behaviorist psychology through an examination of the psychological systems of Freud, Jung, Eysenck, Boss, Adler, Sullivan, Pavlov and Skinner. In contrast to other writers on psychological systems, he shows how proponents of the psychodynamic and behavioristic schools both add to and complement one another." "The book opens with a discussion of psychological paradigms and then moves on to consider Freudian psychodynamics. There follow chapters illustrating how Jung, Eysenck and Boss differ from Freud on personality structure, and how Adler and Sullivan differ from him in describing environmental effects on personality." "The second part of the book shifts to an experimental perspective, showing how the mental structures of clinicians such as Freud and Jung are replaced by the temporal and transactional structures of Pavlov and Skinner. In conclusion, Keehn argues that announcements of the death of behaviorism and psychoanalysis may well be premature."--Jacket
