MECHANISTIC THEORY

is one of many theories which attempt to explain human behaviours. Mechanistic theory implies that human behaviours can be explained in the exact same way that mechanical and physiological processes are explained and understood.

MECHANISTIC THEORY: "Psychologists which look at behaviours, have applied theories such as mechanistic theory which assumes that processes and behaviours can ultimately be understood in the same way as machines."
