Date Created: 09/13/16
Prologue chapter Structuralism : a method of interpretation and analysis of aspects of human cognition, behavior, culture, and  experience that focuses on relationships of contrast between elements in a conceptual system that reflect  patterns underlying a superficial diversity. Functionalism : is a theory about the nature of mental states. According to functionalism, mental states are  identified by what they do rather than by what they are made of. Behaviorism : the theory that human and animal behavior can be explained in terms of conditioning, without  appeal to thoughts or feelings, and that psychological disorders are best treated by altering behavior patterns. Humanistic psychology : is a psychological perspective that emphasizes the study of the whole  person. Humanistic psychologists look at human behavior not only through the eyes of the observer, but  through the eyes of the person doing the behaving. Cognitive neuroscience :  is an academic field concerned with the scientific study of the biological  processes and aspects that underlie cognition, with a specific focus on the neural connections in the brain  which are involved in mental processes. Positive psychology : is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to  thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. Levels of analysis :  In political science we use three widely accepted levels of generalization (or  abstraction) to help understand highly complex problems in world politics.  The biopsychosocial approach : systematically considers biological, psychological, and social factors and  their complex interactions in understanding health, illness, and health care delivery.
