    One of the principal challenges to human survival will be for human beings, embedded in a plurality of cultural contexts, to engage with and learn from one another respectfully in the continuing task of creating a more liveable world. I argue here that theoretical psychology can contribute to setting some of the terms for this effort through the kind of conception it advances of the person as agent. I discuss broadly two philosophical perspectives toward human agency which have become prominent (...)

  2. Adelbert H. Jenkins (1997). Free Will and Psychotherapy: The Enhancement of Agency. Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 17 (1):1-12.
    Proposes that to the extent that psychotherapy allows the individual to exercise greater freedom in his or her life it does so through enhancing psychological agency. The conceptions of free will and of agency used here are influenced strongly by J. F. Rychlak's discussion of the human capacity for "dialectical" thinking. The author discusses these conceptions of agency in terms of some of R. Schafer's recent ideas regarding psychoanalytic psychotherapy. A. H. Jenkins further notes that this conception of individuality is (...)

  3. Adelbert H. Jenkins (1996). Review of Time and Psychological Explanation. [REVIEW] Journal of Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 16 (1):67-72.
    Reviews the book Time and psychological explanation by Brent D. Slife . In this book Prof. Slife has taken on the task of showing how the Western conception of time is a construct whose use in psychology is in need of just such a review. The object of Slife's critique is the modern Western tradition which takes time to be an objective and linear entity. This perspective, of course, derives from the work and thinking of Sir Isaac Newton, and it (...)

  6. Adelbert H. Jenkins (1989). Psychological Agency: A Crucial Concept for Minorities. Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology 9 (1):4-12.
    A telic-humanistic perspective adds a needed supplement to the usual psychological descriptions of non-White ethnic minorities. These people have not simply been reacting to forces impinging upon them but often have interpreted situations from the dialectic perspective provided by their intentions to sustain their self-worth in the face of demeaning circumstances. Historically an important way that minority families have bolstered their children's sense of self and helped them build a sense of competence has been by providing positive alternatives in that (...)
