Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"In an era of ever increasing specialization, both within psychology and between psychology and other 'fields,' this book opens the doors and windows and lets in fresh air. It is a courageous inquiry into knowing in the broadest sense, and a defense of the necessity of this broadest sense if we are to have real progress. If there is hope for the academy to recapture a sense of intellectual mission, instead of functioning as a holding company for nervously competing interests, it will come from books like this one." -- Michael A. Wallach, Duke University

"I found it to be a highly intelligent, extremely well organized introduction to the new wave criticism of mainline behavioristic and rationalistic disciplines." -- David L. Hall, University of Texas

Olds examines the role of metaphor and models in psychology, science, and religion and argues the case for systems theory as a contemporary unifying metaphor across domains, with particular emphasis on clarifying its potential for psychology.

"I believe that Metaphors of Interrelatedness will revitalize and give fresh dimension to the liberal arts. It was a treat to read." -- Jane L. Evanson, Alaska Pacific University

Linda E. Olds is Professor of Psychology at Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon. She is also the author of Fully Human.
