In Section 2.3 The Fragmentation of Psychology and How to Remedy It, on page 31, the authors write:

"Given that the current fragmentation of psychology into warring schools and disjoint subfields hinders the advancement of our science, what can be done to overcome it? Because the fragmentation into rival schools derives from rival philosophies, it can only be overcome by adopting a single underlying philosophy--preferably the one closest to the 'scientific spirit.' And the fragmentation into disjoint subfields can be overcome by recalling at all times that a single protagonist plays all of the behavioral and mental roles, namely the nervous system."

The solution to the most serious problem in psychology is to provide it with the same unifying philosophical foundation which has led to spectacular success in physics and chemistry and biochemistry. This book provides that foundation. It is not a crude reductionism which gets scornfully dismissed for good reason. It is a sophisticated philosophy enriched by the latest scientific triumphs.

The alternative is the chronic disagreements long underway and helpful to no patient.
