002 | What is Psychology? | Why We Do What We Do

What to Expect

In this episode, Abraham and RYANO start at the beginning with the question of "What is Psychology?"  Given that psychology is a very term-driven field, terms often need to be unpacked since they don't necessarily always mean what they mean when we use them day-to-day. Questions that they ask include:

  1. Does psychology apply to everyone or everything?
  2. What's the mind, and where is it?
  3. Can it be a science, or is it just a social science?
  4. Does it require a context?
  5. Is there room for the brain, or genes?
  6. Is behavior only observable events? 
  7. What is cognition, and is it included in psychology?
