Title
Which Presuppositions? Secular Psychology and the Categories of Biblical Thought
Abstract

It is one thing to say presuppositions affect theory and counseling; it is another to identify which presuppositions are most important. If our thinking and counseling is to be biblical, where does the key prepositional issue lie? The thesis of this article is that categories of human experience and behavior become "€œpsychologistic"€ unless they specifically and consciously describe all that pertains to human beings in relation to God. Kuhn, Polanyi, Van Til, Berkouwer, Hooykaas and McQuilkin are discussed. The categories for understanding human behavior must root intrinsically and consistently in the biblical view of people.
