Psychology is Entirely Physical


This book is written for all health workers, particularly psychologists, psychiatrists, specialist physicians, neurologists, and students in these fields. The thrust of the book is that psychological phenomena, in illness and health, are manifestations of physical processes, no different from respiration, digestion, and motion. In like manner, psychological interventions are, in all respects, physical treatments.For the general public, probably nothing is more interesting and fascinating than psychology, as we attempt to understand others and ourselves, and as we attempt to influence each other, (or to change ourselves!). Our everyday language is full of references to psychological concepts. We say things like, "Oh, that's just psychological". Furthermore, most, if not all, of our actions are directed at satisfying our psychological needs: we socialize, listen to music, pray, engage in or watch sport, seek adventures of all sorts, take alcohol and drugs, read books, help others, and so on. Even the pursuit of money, power, fame, notoriety, and security are ultimately the pursuit of psychological needs. Most psychology books focus on detailed and accurate descriptions of behaviour, but fall short of explanations of those behaviours.This book will be of interest to health workers and the general public alike because it goes beyond mere descriptions of behaviour and looks at the underlying biological mechanisms.
