Whether it be physical or social influences in our environment, they both play a role in the development of our thoughts, actions, and emotions. People, like Nicholas Carr and John Locke, have put thought into what they believe is their point of view of the mind. Both Carr and Locke share a similar idea of the mind which is that experiences are the foundations of the mind.
The psychologist, Carl Jung, says that universal characters reside within the collective unconscious of people around the world. These characters are called archetypes.

They can also give us a visual and our eyes will take care of that.
Beck (2012), explain what separates psychodynamic theory from other theories and is unique and exclusive, is the concept of unconscious. Psychodynamic theories emphasize the importance of our unconscious mental life. In psychodynamic theory, emotions are data about the inner mental life, and it is in that perspective as the informants from the unconscious that emotions must be understood.

He then address the current consensus for the debate of nature versus nurture; the idea that nature and nurture do not work separately mostly accepted and psychologists aim to focus on observing how nature and nurture work together (1). McLeod displays a fair amount of knowledge on nature versus nurture in his article “Nature Versus Nurture in Psychology.” He discusses what nature and nurture is in depth, important psychologist and theories, and recent ideas and theories pertaining to nature versus nurture; because of how in depth McLeod discusses the topic, he most likely did the research necessary for the article in order to apply the theories, propose his own ideas, and produce an informative
Nietzsche’s influence extended beyond philosophy to psychology. Notably, Sigmund Freud, the architect of psychoanalysis and analytic psychology founder, Carl Jung are said to be influenced by Nietzsche’s work (Brians, 1998). Although Nietzsche’s work left impressions on several other twentieth century psychologists, including Alfred Adler, Abraham Maslow and Ayn Rand, for the purpose of this essay the effect on Freud and Jung’s work will be in primary focus. Jung was fascinated by Nietzsche and his work. From Jung’s student days to him being a pioneer in the psychoanalytic movement, Jung read and developed his own thoughts regarding Nietzsche’s ideas and work (Rensma, 2012).
Psychology has become the study the mind and behavior of humans. Throughout time, psychology has taken the form in multiple disciplines from therapy, research, perception, experimental, abnormal, and much more. What psychology has become was originally started with the founding fathers of the field with their ideas, theories, and research.

There are many approaches when it come to the study of the human behavior and mind, also known as Psychology. One approach to psychology is Humanism. The humanistic approach to psychology is a psychological perspective that emphasizes the study of the whole person (known as holism). Humanistic psychologists look at human behavior, not only through the eyes of the observer, but through the eyes of the person doing the behaving. When people make different choices and decisions, humanistic psychologists consider the mind of the person making the choices and decisions and attempt to make a belief as to how the person came up with that decision and/or choice.
Rationalism and empiricism are two methods that can be understood under the concept of epistemology, psychology and philosophy of psychology to understand where the source of knowledge comes from. “In psychology and its philosophy, empiricism and rationalism concern the sources of psychological states and capacities that may include, but are not confined to, state of knowledge (Longworth, 2009).” Rationalism states a priori knowledge, deduction and the concept of an active mind. According to rationalist, our minds have innate set of principles and skills. If we only use our logic in accordance with these principles is enough to obtain accurate information about all the objects that make up the universe. “Knowledge of a particular subject
INFLUENCERS The list is extensive as to those influencing the emergence, development and continuation of psychological study and treatment. Sigmund Freud, Ivan Pavlov, Carl Jung and Erik Erikson may be familiar names to some. Focusing on the field of humanistic psychology, a few notable names come to mind. — Abraham Maslow Known for his work identifying the hierarchy of needs, Maslow brought light to this field with his publication, “A Theory of Human Motivation.” — Carl Rogers Applying the principles of humanism to therapy, Rogers progressed the humanistic approach by publishing “Client-Centered Therapy.” — Erich Fromm Challenging Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis, Fromm brought the fundamental concepts of human freedom, and the influence of society and culture on individuals to treatment.

Two major approaches when studying bystander behaviour are discourse analysis and experimental method. Latané & Darley and Levine have contributed to psychological study into this matter, using these different methods of experimentation to reach conclusions regarding the bystander effect. This essay will begin by describing the different uses of evidence in both methods. Furthermore, it will discuss what these methods have in common, for they equally attempt to understand why bystander behaviour occurs, and the reasons that they differ. It will examine why each method is a useful way of analysing human behaviour, and the similarities in the limited demographics used by these particular psychologists.
