Podcast Episode #4: Eastern Versus Western Psychology

Fourth in a podcast series on brains, thinking and knowledge by cognitive scientist and philosopher David Cycleback, this 20-minute episode compares and contrasts the different psychology approaches and theories of the East (Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Jainism) and the West (modern Western academia, science).  They study human brains and minds in different ways and each has its own insights and limits.  Many in both the East and West believe the two ways should compliment each other.
