Psychology and Experience 1st Edition
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
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.
