ARE THERE ANY LIMITATIONS OF PSYCHOLOGY?

Psychology also influences modern culture. Learning about psychology's findings changes people. They do not judge psychological disorders as moral failings. They no longer believe that psychological disorders should be treated with as punishment and ostracism. Similarly, now they do not regard women mentally inferior to men. They no longer view and rear children as an ignorant, wilful beast that needs taming. Morton Hunt rightly pointed out that knowledge has modified attitudes and through the behavior. Once we are aware of how our body is connected to our mind, how a child's mind grows, how our perceptions are formed and how our memory works, how people differ across the world, our way of thinking will change forever.

However, psychology has certain limitations. It can't answer questions such as –
  • Why should I live?
  • Why should I do anything?
  • Is there any purpose in life that even death cannot destroy?
Yet psychology deepens our appreciation for how we humans perceive, think, and feel and act. It enriches our lives and broadens our vision.
