Book Description:

Psychological science challenges and sometimes contradicts common ideas about stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination, as well as other behavioral domains that intersect with legal processes like eyewitness identification, repressed memories, polygraph testing, affirmative action, and others. Beyond Common Sense: Psychological Science in the Courtroom confronts the public's often erroneous beliefs about the courts and human behavior. Featuring original chapters written by leading experts in the field of psychology and law including Elizabeth Loftus, Saul Kassin, Faye Crosby, Alice Eagly, Gary Wells, Louise Fitzgerald, Craig Anderson, and Phoebe Ellsworth, each chapter identifies areas of scientific agreement and disagreement and discusses how psychological science advances an understanding of human behavior beyond what is accessible by common sense and intuitive beliefs. The book concludes with commentaries written by leading social science and law scholars that discuss key legal and scientific themes and illustrate how psychological science is or can be used in the courts.
