The Assumption Psychology is Science |

TBC Staff

Many have approached the question of psychology from the assumption that it is a science (i.e., something God built into His creation) that only lacks qualified Christian personnel in order to make it work. It is worth considering psychologist Dr. Sigmund Koch’s comments concerning his own field of endeavor: “The hope of psychological science became indistinguishable from the fact of psychological science. The entire subsequent history of psychology can be seen as a ritualistic endeavor to emulate the forms of science in order to sustain the delusion that it already is a science” (The American Scholar, Autumn 1973, p. 66). Consequently, even secular psychologists recognize that psychology began as a theory, has never advanced beyond a theory, and will remain a theory.
