Overview
'...a useful book. What is specially welcome is that Hayes is radical without being either ranting or obscure. It should be widely read.' - David Cohen, New Scientist;Psychology in Perspective is a set of stimulating and provocative essays about contemporary psychology and its influence. They show how psychological knowledge is located within, and also contributes to, its social, political and economic context. Ranging from the use of dubious psychological evidence to legitimise the eugenics of the Nazi gas chambers; to the hijacking of cognitive psychology by the computer metaphor, Psychology in Perspective shows how the complexities of human behaviour have been consistently ignored by reductionist approaches to psychology, and discusses how a valid picture of the human being invariably encompasses more than one level of explanation.
