Functional Psychology


Collapse )

Wikipedia defines functional psychology as a general psychological philosophy that considers mental life and behavior in terms of active adaptation to the person's environment. It good to finally have a name for what it is I muse about. While I was theorizing about the practical application of Kohlberg's Development of Moral Reasoning I kept getting off-track as I had to jump between scores which were conducive to my formulation and subsequent articulation. James Horner's A Beautiful Mind was a given, but as these things often do, one thing led to another, and another.

As I endeavor to not repeat tracks in my various compilations I was struck with a challenge as I have used a handful of these previously. This lead me to wonder if I could find re-recordings of some of my favorites - most notably lush orchestrations of otherwise "flat" synthetic compositions. And indeed I did! Armed with the iTunes store and "City of Prague" as my divining rod, I found exactly that.

This is essentially the playlist I ultimately put on repeat as I was authoring Game Theory. Enjoy!
