I am currently a gap-year student, going on to study Psychology at Leeds this year. My two primary subjects of interest are Sociology and Psychology, of which I achieved an A and an A* respectively. In my shop, you will find essays, of which often are full-marks or A-A* graded, as well as mindmaps and flashcard sets that I myself created as revision, and which helped me immensely during my studies.

Reductionism in the context of Psychology

(0)
A full-mark essay from an eventual A-star student in Psychology. This full-length essay debates the appropriacy of a reductionist approach to psychology (as opposed to a holistic one) via the discussion of the opening statement: “The best way to understand and explain behaviour is to reduce it to the simplest component parts”. Throughout, it references areas of psychology that students may have studied, and uses them to back up points and to put the debate into context. It is concise, well-explained, and critical, and would be a useful resource for study both inside and outside of the classroom. Attached is a second copy, where the AO1 has been highlighted in blue font, the negative AO3 in red font, and the positive AO3 in green font.
