There is no new information, only discovered information, just to lay the ground work. In today’s realm of psychology the outward persons actions are studied and then a psychological profile is developed. It’s deeper than that, it is more within the mind or software of the person. Imagine trying to figure out a computer software problem by looking at the hardware components. That would not happen, that is why today’s methods are taking the wrong approach. At least mainstream that is. I am sure that there are some students who are on the fringe would agree.
It was said that the Greeks studied the soul and that’s where we got the name Psychology. Psyche meaning soul and logos meaning word. It is obvious to note that the Greek language had many variations of one word and its meaning so you may come across other meanings of the word Psyche and Logos when referencing the words in Greek.
