Psychology is becoming an increasingly specialized but fragmented field. Forces within psychology and society at-large have tended to push psychologists apart. It will take a concerted belief in the importance of unity to combat these forces and mend psychology's splintering image. Unity in Psychology: Possibility or Pipedream? examines the opportunities for psychologists to come together and unify. A distinguished group of contributors share their common belief that, at some level, the fragmentation of psychology is a mistake. There is a "cure," namely, an approach that emphasizes studying psychological phenomena from a variety of different perspectives. There is nothing new in this idea. On the contrary, it has been around for many years. Williams James certainly was a unified psychologist! Unity in Psychology: Possibility or Pipedream? will provoke psychologists to examine the forces that define the field and take an active role in shaping the future.
