The purpose of this article is to indicate a path to overcoming the unsatisfactory condition of sciences and psychological and psychiatric professions, moving from the examination of the main innovations in this field. In the field of neuroscience, the most recent elaborations of Antonio Damasio and Joseph Ledoux go in the direction of radical overcoming of reductionism, in favour of a systemic vision of the human organism, in a framework of interaction between psyche, brain and other biological systems. In the psychological and psychotherapeutic fields, the two main traditions, the psychodynamics and the cognitive, are traversed by critical currents that envisages the overcoming of some pillars of their respective traditional heritage, in favour of an approach which, in some, is an explicit project of theoretical and practical integration. In this context, Psychoneuroendocrineimmunology can play a fundamental role by providing a non-reductionist scientific paradigm on which to construct a unitary path and a new synthesis in the psychological and psychiatric fields
