- Comparison of Approaches: Determinism
- Proposes that all behaviour has an internal or external cause and thus predictable.
- Boxes in red = HARD determinism.
- Behaviourist - behaviour is environmentally determined by external forces we cannot control.
- Biological - advocates a form of genetic determinism in its assumption that much of our behaviour is directed by innate influences.
- Psycho Dynamic - psychic determinism is a key feature as we cannot know the unconscious forces that drive our behaviour and these are simply reationalised by our conscious minds.
- Cognitive - suggests we are the choosers of our own thoughts and behaviours. But these choices only operate within limits of what we know/experienced.
- Humanistic - humans have free will and operate as active agents.
- Boxes in grey = SOFT determinism.
