Attempting to answer these important questions and more, psychology – the scientific study of human and nonhuman behaviour – has never been more popular. From TV experts to the amateur musings of your best friend, the language of psychology has permeated all aspects of everyday life. Here, the author proves that modern psychology concerns far more than the everyday stereotypes of Freud, Jung, and ‘common sense’ advice. Exploring the senses, how memory works, and what determines our intelligence and personality, this Beginner’s Guide is informed by the latest cutting-edge research and provides a vibrant and witty examination of the very heart of what it is to be human.
