In your previous studies as a psychology student, you will likely have come across the following theories:
Baddeley’s working memory model; 2) Psychoanalysis (whether by Freud or others); 3) Cognitive-affective processing system; 4) Self-Determination Theory (Deci and Ryan); 5) The Big Five/Five Factor Model; 6) Beck’s theory of cognitive therapy; 7) Bandura’s social learning theory; 8) Maslow’s motivation & personality theory.
These theories all have metatheoretical commitments related to the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of science.
i)                Compare and contrast the metatheoretical commitments of any two of these theories (or other psychological theories, if you get permission from your tutor first), and taking one major conceptual challenge (for example, mind body problem, or free will)
ii)                Evaluate the ability of those two theories deal with that problem.
Notes
-The purpose of the essay is to get you to think about, articulate, and justify your position on some of the “big issues” in our discipline. It is not to rehash something that you read – there will be more on essay writing in the lectures and tutorials.
-Read your supplementary text Bell and Staines especially chapters 10, 1 and 2.
-We do not supply references because there are so many relevant to the topic. Part of what your essay is judged on is your capacity to discover for yourself and cull material relevant to the topic. Obviously, many of the lectures, the text, and the references provided in this outline are directly relevant to the essay.
-Unlike in some of your other subjects, references may be from over 20 years ago
NOTES: i was thinking to write something on 5) The Big Five/Five Factor Model; & 7) Bandura’s social learning theory on conceptual issues in personality such the ontological status of the constructs
(i.e., whether the construct of neuroticism exists in the real world and so can we have objective (unbiased) knowledge/understanding of it) as well as other logical fallacies.
