If personal experience is the basic raw materal for psychology, why do all the major psychologies of the past century find reason to marginalise or deny it? Here, Benjamin Bradley presents a thought provoking study which explores the way our everyday experience of life has been marginalised within the scientific discipline of psychology (research and teaching). Arguing that an experience-based approach to psychology should complement the more traditional scientific approach, Professor Bradley takes a bold and intial step in reclaiming the Enlightenments vision for the discipline.
