Levels in psychhology - 4 models (+1)

  1. 1. Levels in Psychology Comparing the most popular concepts
  2. 2. The most popular concepts of Levels 1. Levels of moral consciousness - Clare W. Graves (from 1952 to 1974) 2. Spiral Dynamics - Christopher Cowan, Don Edward Beck (book of 1996) 3. Integral Theory - Ken Wilber, Barret Brown (from 2000 up to now) 4. TUAI-HBT - Jacob Feldman (from 1989 up to now) HBT = Human Being Theory, TUAI = Theory of levels of abstract intellingence
  3. 3. Levels of moral consciousness by Clare W. Graves 1. There are more 25 models of different authors Graves compares with his model and finds they are isomorphic to his model in different ways 2. Graves tests his model by scientific experiments of high standards but it covers only small percent of his declarations - most of his statements remains mythological constructions 3. Graves declares that “development of moral consciousness happens in adulthood as well as intellectual development happens in childhood” (according to Piaget) - from level to level up while environment facilitates it 4. Graves proved that “average consciousness goes up”, but his declaration that “individual consciousness goes up” was never proven
  4. 4. Graves never was a public figure - he became famous in 10 years after his death - because of new brands: Spiral Dynamics and Integral Theory
  5. 5. Spiral Dynamics 1. SD works with corporations 2. SD analyses conflicts inside corporation, explains it with “different SD-levels” and advices “what to do” 3. SD has its own unique “color sequence”, it is not rainbow sequence but cold-hot-alternation scale - invented by Don Edward Beck
  6. 6. Integral Theory 1. This brand cover at least two theories (may be more). A-theory by Ken Wilber and B-theory by Barret Brown 2. Ken Wilber does not solve problems, he tells mix-tales from religion (presumably buddhism) and science (presumably neurophysiology) 3. Barret Brown works with corporations, not socially (like SD) but personally, improving personalities of leaders and managers. He is more close to Graves than anybody other from Graves’ offsprings
  7. 7. Ken Wilber’s
  8. 8. Barret Brown’s
  9. 9. F-levels = Feldman’s G-levels = Graves’ WB = Wilber’s and Brown’s SD = Spiral Dynamics
  10. 10. F-levels against GWBSD-levels GWBSD-levels 1. Every person in every moment stands at one level for long enough time span 2. Lifting up is possible only with individual will and force while environment is good. Bad environment usually makes you to move down 3. Lifting up is profitable for you and everybody around individually as well as collectively F-levels 1. Every person in every moment has a set of favourite levels (usually 4 levels in a set = profile) 2. The set becomes iimmutable after childhood (since 12 years old). After this age you can chage the profile only after personal disaster of some kind 3. Changing your profile (lifting up) may bring you advantage or disadvantage. It depends on many factors around you
  11. 11. Bonus: At the left: Levels of logics and epistemology by Ramon Llull (1232 - 1315) Feldman’s levels AND Ramon Llull’s levels BOTH work in logics and epistemology Other levels’ systems DO NOT
