  Multiple Scientific Paradigms in Environmental Psychology
Title: Multiple Scientific Paradigms in Environmental Psychology
Author: Craik, Kenneth H.
Appeared in: International journal of psychology
Paging: Volume 12 (1977) nr. 2 pages 147-157
Year: 1977
Contents: The developmental-historical pattern of environmental psychology is analyzed. It is seen to reflect primarily the discovery of engaging puzzles within the man-environment context by several mature research paradigms currently viable within scientific psychology. This invasion of the paradigms is illustrated by brief accounts of: 1) ecological psychology; 2) environmental perception; 3) environmental assessment; 4) personality and the environment; 5) environmental cognition, and 6) analysis of functional adaptations. The implications of this perspective are noted for the new fielĸs pure and applied research potential; for communication between researchers and environmental decisionmakers; for the prospects of a common conceptual framework, and for advanced research training in the field.
