Psychology Book

£18.99

How does the brain remember faces? What makes us choose one decision over another? Where does language come from? With the use of powerful and easy-to-follow images, quotations from all the major thinkers, and explanations that are easily understandable, this book answers these questions and many others.

Description

How does memory work? Who is the “distractor” in your family? What was the “car crash” experiment?

This book is your visual guide to the complex and fascinating world of human behaviour. Discover how we learn, become emotionally bonded with others, and develop coping mechanisms to deal with adversity, or conform in a group.

Get to know key thinkers, from Freud and Jung to Elizabeth Loftus and Melanie Klein, and follow charts and timelines to make sense of it all and see how one theory influenced another.

With pithy explanations of different schools of psychology including psychotherapy, cognitive psychology, and behaviourism, this is an ideal reference whether you’re a student, or a general reader. It’s your authoritative guide to over 100 key ideas, theories, and conditions, including the collective unconscious, the “selfish” gene, false memory, psychiatric disorders, and autism.

If you’re fascinated by the human mind, The Psychology Book is both an invaluable reference and illuminating read.
