COLOUR AND MAN: THROUGH THE EYES OF THE PSYCHO-ARTOLOGIST (Published)

This paper discusses the relationship between colour and man. It is assumed that the meaning of life is clear to all of us or that we all share certain assumptions about life in common. However, the same cannot be said of colour, even though we all have the capacity for perceiving colour. Therefore, an attempt is made to provide some insight into the meaning of colour, its various aspects and how we can use it to organize our lives in a meaningful way. The study adopted experimental approach to establish the relationship between man and colour. In addition, the critical and historical examination approach was employed to determine the effect of the experimental treatment. The study revealed that, if the colours in and around man is properly used, heals, restores, retains and maintains relationship.

TOWARDS A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE CONCEPT “MAN AND HIS ENVIRONMENT” THROUGH AN “INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENT” APPROACH (Published)

“Man and His Environment,” is a topical issue in all discussions on the environment, which itself has been recognized as an important issue in sustainable development. A companion paper to this one on the title “Religion, Man and His Environment” (Fatubarin and Alokan, 2013), discussed the interactions of man with the natural environment. However, in order to have a near comprehensive account of the concept of man in his environment, all the environments, natural, socio-economic, political/governmental, built and spiritual, are considered as components of an integrated environment, in this paper. The paper discuses the diverse environments, their interactions among themselves and the adverse interactions of man in the environments. The paper concludes by noting that the issue of “Man and His Environment,” is too all-embracing, to be given either a physical or socio-economic interpretation alone. It has to be approached comprehensively, as done in this paper, to have a deeper understanding of the concept.
