Radical Middle PsychologyPosted: August 21, 2005 Filed under: News Comments Off on Radical Middle Psychology
Hat tip to Yellow Line. Mark Satin recently posted another of his comprehensive analyses of radical middle trends, this time about psychology:
Like radical middle politics, radical middle psychology is pragmatic and ethical and conducive to personal growth. It is tailor-made for those of us who are committed to being fully present for each other while doing great things in this world.
This reminded me a great deal of my story, “The Marriage of Truth and Love“, which led me to summarize his article this way:
* Conservative psychology preaches truth but denies love
* Liberal psychology preaches love but denies truth
* Radical middle psychology preaches loving truth, and truthful loving, and denies we must — or even can — choose between them
An oversimplification, perhaps, but I hope a useful one.
