Abstract:

In a fascinating analysis of the great psychological and sociological thinkers--including Freud, Maslow, McClelland, Durkheim, Skinner, Lewin and Mead--this erudite text challenges the models, myths and metaphors of modern psychology. Psychologists have promoted the view that human beings are the victims of internal and external forces, and have laboured to absorb free and responsible individuals into a pseudo-scientific framework that denies moral agency and thus renders them incapable of recognising notions of right and wrong. This book will appeal to anyone who has read enough psychology to.
