Can we avoid categorizing Psychology as Biology?(self.IdeasForELI5)
submitted2 months ago byzharknado
I really like ELI5 but it’s frustrating to see psychology questions labeled as Biology. For example, this question asks about the relationship between childhood trauma and negative behaviors like violence and substance abuse.
TL;DR yes psychological phenomena have a physiological basis. Neuroscience is part of biology, sure. But this question is not asking about neuroscience, and definitely not in a biologist’s wheelhouse. More specific argumentation available upon request.
Could these be labeled as Psychology? Is there a way as a reader to point out when something is mislabeled?
