  1. Ohoho))In Freud's time, I would have been too shy to call her that.
    But now, yes.
    First of all, this is not just a show of one scientist, where he told everything in detail and everyone sharply decided to believe him.
    Now it's a lot of people, there's solid scientific evidence, and so on.

    Well, psychology rarely gives any precise answers. That should give us something to reproach her for, and I kind of agree.

    But is physics any different? until recently, they believed that nothing is smaller than an atom.
    Then they proved that there is.
    And here you are, there was an exact answer that was refuted.

    Now psychology involves medicine, pharmacy, neurophysiology, chemistry, and a host of other sciences.
    These are no longer just bare theories, and it's also banal, there was a lot of time to check individual versions, reject incorrect ones and come up with new ones.
    Yes, what is there – it even becomes applied!
    Testing people's abilities, treating them, finding criminals, managing people's behavior, and so on.
    What, then, is this area of knowledge that is involved in so many aspects, if not science?

  2. Yes, psychology is a science. The reason why such questions are asked is right at the bottom. Psychology is a liberal arts discipline that will constantly strive to become an accurate discipline. This is her happiness and her curse.

    Psychology is the only science whose subject has an opinion about itself, and its subject is the human psyche (previously consciousness was considered the subject). And all that is given to psychology as research material is what a person tells about himself. This splits psychology into general – what we can consider the basis of our ideas about the psyche and differential-individual differences. Thus, there is always a risk that the most “scientific” statement will not be suitable for a particular case.�

    Everyday psychology is several thousand years old, and it can include everything that concerns the study of the human psyche in philosophy, art, and culture. The clearest example of the everyday psychology of antiquity is Theophrastus '”Characters”.�

    Scientific psychology is much less years old, its founder Wilhelm Wundt in his work “Principles of Physiological Psychology” does not just build a science of consciousness, but develops a methodology and deduces the first method of scientific psychology – introspection, in other words, introspection. The work was published in 1874, and in 1879 Wundt fought to win back 4 rooms at the University of Leipzig, where he is listed as a professor of philosophy, and opens the world's first psychological laboratory. This is how psychology was born as a science and continues to live to this day.

    And Freud has absolutely nothing to do with it. And the” unscientific ” nature of his ideas does not detract from their value or the scale of his discoveries.

  3. Psychology, like philosophy, is not a science. Science solves applied problems with the allocated funds. What is sold as “fantasy” is a product of consumption by the corresponding starving people..If a person is mentally healthy, then he does not need religion, psychology, philosophy…
