Summary

If you want to know your Freud from your Jung and your Milgram from your Maslow, strap in for this whirlwind tour of the highlights of psychology. Including accessible primers on:

  • The early thinkers who contributed to psychological ideas and the birth of modern psychology
  • Famous (and often controversial) experiments and their repercussions
  • What psychology can teach us about memory, language, conformity, reasoning and emotions
  • The ethics of psychological studies
  • Recent developments in the modern fields of evolutionary and cyber psychology.

This illuminating little book will introduce you to the key thinkers, themes and theories you need to know to understand how the study of mind and behaviour has sculpted the world we live in and the way we think today.
