Psychoananalytic, Behaviourist, Biological and Cognitive


Psychology is a branch of science that is concerned with the mind and behavior of human in relation to the phenomena and conditions surrounding the individual. It is often termed as the science of Mental Life (James, 2007, p.1). In trying to explain what affects the mind and behaviors of individuals, psychologists have developed different views that have translated into schools in psychology. Among the major schools in psychology are Psychoanalytic psychology, Behaviorist psychology, Biological psychology (biopsychology), and Cognitive psychology (Cherry, 2011). Each of these schools of thought has been developed differently and has distinct characteristics. They all have strengths and weaknesses. The schools are also used distinctively in explaining different aspects of human behavior. An evaluation of these different schools of thought is the major concern in this paper.
