The three dynamics of human progress (1988)

Breggin, PR. (1988-89). Review of Existential Psychology and Psychiatry 21:(Nos. 1-3)97-123, 1988-89.

Dr. Breggin’s Three Dynamics Theory presents a value system for understanding human progress. The system can be applied to assessing the progress or development of individual persons or small groups, larger organizations, and society. It attempts to unify various fields of human study–including psychology, economics, politics, and religion–through a single set of values for examining progress in every arena of human activity. This paper presents the overall theory and apply it to psychology and psychiatry.
