Facts, Fallacies and Frauds in Psychology

 
9780044452898: Facts, Fallacies and Frauds in Psychology

Are the effects of hypnosis real or imagined? Are most people potential killers? Are anorexia and bulimia nervosa forms of depression? Is there any real evidence of ESP? These are some of the questions that continue to generate fierce arguments among psychologists and excite considerable general interest. Facts, Fallacies and Frauds in Psychology looks closely at six popular and controversial issues. In each case the central ideas are explained and research findings presented in such a way that readers can develop a clearer, deeper understanding - and find out how psychologists really think. Reputations are assessed; fraud is unflinchingly exposed. The book's non-technical treatment of popular topics makes it accessible to the general reader. For those who wish to pursue the topics in greater depth, detailed notes and references to primary sources and useful texts are supplied.
