This book is wonderful! It is by far the best book on critical thinking in psychology available. Written for an capstone course in psychology, _Critical Thinkin About Psychology_ provides a readable presentation of critical issues in psychology as well as plausible alternatives to the prevailing, paradigmatic directions in psychology. Issues are logically broken down into subareas of discussion. I highly recommend this book for any individual interested in gaining perspective on different issues in the broad field of psychology.

There is not a text out there that lays out the discipline's (and sub-disciplines') issues as clearly or as provocatively as this book. Written at a level that undergraduate students without a philosophy background could comprehend, it nevertheless delves through some tricky conceptual issues that seasoned professionals would do well do heed!

Highly recommended for anyone involved in the discipline in a significant way.

You know your book about a science struggling to prove its validity in academia is suspect when it uses philosophy (the least valid arm of academia, using the term academia in this case liberally)for it's arguments. I mean, science has come up with a system to weed out bad concepts and ideas. Philosophy on the other hand spends half it's energies arguing against needing such a system.

Q: Do you know what item the Philosophy department at your closest University is missing that every other department has? A: A trash can.
