If personal experience is the basic raw material for psychology, why do all the major psychologies of the past century marginalise or deny it? In this thought-provoking new book Benjamin Bradley shows how our everyday experiences need to be at the core of the scientific discipline. He calls for a move away from attempts to reconcile the many contrasting and often opposing theories and philosophies of contemporary psychology, and instead puts forward a scholarly and exciting new vision for psychology which focuses on the ‘here-and-now’ and the importance of others as equals in teaching and research. He encourages the reader to reconsider the very basis of our understanding of what experience is. This uniquely inspiring and practical text will prove an invaluable resource for all those interested in teaching, learning and researching about the mind. • A thought provoking study which reclaims the psychology of experience • Realigns assumptions made about the discipline of psychology • Professor Bradley is a well respected psychologist who has published widely in the areas of developmental and social psychology Contents Preface; 1.
