The Third Method of Research in Psychology

Manoj Pavithran

Research in psychology, these days, are predominantly following the objective scientific method and its underlying worldview of materialism. While this method has its place, the very method limits the scope of our understanding and the perspectives we can get through it.

Wider Collateral of War: Spiritist Effects on Human Well-being

Dr. Natalie Tobert

The author proposes that war and trauma have multiple side-effects. They directly damage not only soldiers, their ‘victims’ and descendants, but also the wider population indirectly as collateral.

In the Face of Error and Evil

Dr. Alok Pandey

The human journey starts from ignorance and hence errors and mistakes are an inevitable part of the journey. While learning from errors are quite a normal process of growth, these errors still become sometimes unwittingly the apparent cause of pain for others.
