Vincent Jeffries Integralism and Public Social Science
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This article presents Michael Burawoy’s delineation of four forms of social science: professional, critical, policy, and public. Their interdependence in the division of labor of science is considered. The main tenants of integralism are briefly summarized in relation to this typology. This article serves as an introduction to a symposium on integralism. The five articles in the symposium are placed in the context of the forms of social science.

Lawrence T. Nichols Integralism and Positive Psychology: a Comparison of Sorokin and Seligman
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Pitirim A. Sorokin’s Integralism, which advocates the synthesis of the truths of faith, of reason, and of the senses, accords well with traditional Christian and Catholic approaches to the philosophy of science. Sorokin’s writings on this topic include a prophetic dimension, in which Sorokin argues that social scientists would soon abandon the dominant but moribund paradigm of the Sensate cultural supersystem, and seek a new approach based on Integralist principles. Recently, in the field of psychology, a movement calling itself “Positive Psychology” has appeared, which likewise calls for a fundamental reorientation ofits professional discipline. This paper examines the emerging model of Positive Psychology, especially as articulated in the works of two of its main proponents, Martin E. Seligman and Christopher Peterson, in order to determine the extent to which it is congruent with Sorokin’s Integralism, and thus the extent to which it might contribute to a reformed social science that recognizes an explicitly spiritual dimension of human personality, human behavior and social order.

Christopher J. Thompson Preliminary Remarks Toward A Constructive Encounter Between St. Thomas and Clinical Psychology
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This article address the ways in which contemporary psychologists might usefully engage in a dialogue with Catholic philosophers and theologians influenced by the thought of St. Thomas Aquinas. The specific point of common agreement and vision between these diverse approaches lies in the general notion that human action is directed toward an end which the individual judges to be good in some sense. Despite the considerable differences in foundational issues, boththe clinical psychologist and Thomist are perhaps able to come to a constructive, common vision around the notion that all human action is directed toward the achievement of some good.

Lisa S. Matthews Teaching Sociology of the Family from a Catholic Perspective
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
In today’s post-marriage culture, young people can benefit from the Church’s teachings on marriage and the family. In this paper, I discuss how to teach a college-level sociology of the family from a Catholic perspective. Cynical attitudes toward marriage and their behavioral outcomes (i.e., “hook ups” or short, sexual liaisons) make teaching challenging. However, students still express a desire for longterm, happy marriages and want to hear a hopeful message about marriage. The benefits of drawing on current theological and social scientific research while still adhering to magisterial teaching on the family is emphasized.
