METAPSYCHOLOGY

is the study and awareness of the principles which underlie the study of psychology as a whole. Freud was one research scientist who believed his theories gave comprehensive explanations for the entire psychological phenomena (its dynamics, topology and economic aspects) at a fundamental level.

METAPSYCHOLOGY: "Whilst psychology looks at the mind and neural based phenomena, metapsychology is the process of looking at theories which underpin the study of psychology as a whole."
