Abstract:

[In this book, the author] tackles one of the central questions in psychology: can we truly know ourselves? [He] takes the reader on a ... journey through a wonderland of studies and ideas in contemporary psychology, with side trips into anthropology, medicine, and philosophy. [He] covers many diverse areas of psychology in a very accessible style, with compelling examples from life and literature, to make a radical argument: that for the most part we have very little real understanding of how we work, or why we do even the most ordinary things.-Dust jacket.
