Description

"The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water"
- Sigmund Freud

From Socrates to Carl Jung and Descartes to Daniel Dennett, this illustrated book brings together the threads that have made up psychology, from the musings of the Ancient Greeks to the findings of functional MRI scanning. Explained in a concise and easy-to-understand manner, it explores various key approaches, including structuralist, functionalist, behaviourist, psychodynamic, humanist, cognitive, and biological. It is a narrative of how we have tried to approach the very core of our being - of what makes us ourselves.

Topics include:
• The ghost in the machine - the search for the mind and how it relates to the body
• Models of madness - attempts to categorize and treat mental illness
• Artificial intelligence
• Mind and matter - how modern neurology sheds new light on the workings of the mind
• Psychoanalysis
