Wilhelm Wundt is considered the father of psychology and viewed “the human as a motivated and thinking subject.” He adopted consciousness as the basic unit of analysis, introspection as the research method and the goal is to understand agency or will. In 1920s, American psychology adopted behavior as the unit of analysis, experimental and statistical analysis as the research method, and goal of psychology was to develop an objective, abstract and universal theories, eliminating consciousness, will and culture from research design. Currently, Albert Bandura, who is the most influential and cited psychologist, state that people are agents of their action and motivated to control their lives. Research in neuroscience and genetics concur by pointing out creativity and neuroplasticity define human beings. I will overview the current development genetics, neurobiology and psychology and review the scientific paradigm articulated by Wundt and Bandura by examining the role of creativity and culture driving psychological transformations. I will review substantive areas psychology: The development of the self, parent-child relationship, trust and application of psychology in education, health, organizations and society.
