The Dilemma of Psychology
A Psychologist Looks at His Troubled Profession 2nd Revised edition
Dilemma of Psychology by Lawrence LeShan
Book DescriptionUncompromising, yet with a deep passion for his field, Lawrence LeShan talks about the expectations that rose with the birth of psychology, how the new science started off on the wrong foot, and why it might still be the only tool to solve the deepest issues of our time: war, pollution, and overpopulation. In order to improve the human condition, LeShan argues, psychology has to make humanity and human life its focus. Witty and full of imaginative examples, this visionary roadmap to a more authentic, more vital psychology will fascinate anyone concerned about the mental health of today's society. * LeShan is a "grandmaster of psychology" who has worked as a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist for more than 50 years * New expanded edition includes a timely introduction by the renowned Dr. Stanley Krippner
