Summary
Traces the history of scientific understanding of human behavior from the late 19th century. Examines the pendulum swings of psychological theory from nature to nurture and back again and looks at how scientific ideas about human nature have been twisted to fit political agendas. Explores what case studies, classic experiments, and research on the brain have taught us about ourselves and what still remains unknown. Covers topics such as Jean-Martin Charcot and hysteria, Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis, shell shock and war trauma during the first World War, IQ tests, eugenics, John B. Watson and the behaviorist movement, B.F. Skinner and conditioning, Harry Harlow and the power of love and comfort, Frieda Fromm Reichmann and the treatment of schizophrenia, mental institutions, drug therapy, and Alzheimer's disease
