Carl Rogers and Humanistic Psychology

Vujisic, Zoran

In the 1950’s, humanistic psychology, the core of the ‘human potential movement’ emerged as a third force or alternative to Freudian psychoanalysis on the one hand and behaviorist psychology on the other. The humanists, more philosophical than scientific, objected to the psychoanalytic doctrine that the individual’s personality and behavior are totally determined by his or her life experiences, especially those of childhood, and also to the behaviorist view that the individual’s behavior is only a set of conditioned response to stimuli.
