About the Book

Freudian Slips presents the essential facts and findings of the fascinating subject of psychology in an accessible and enjoyable way, leaving no slip or phallic symbol unexamined.
From psychoanalysis to behaviour therapy, via the subconscious and the unconscious, the book charts a path through the subject's controversial history, and encounters the work of all the big names in the field, such as Freud, Jung, Skinner, Bandura, Piaget and Köhler.
There are many phrases and experiments from psychology that have made it into the public consciousness, although the meaning behind such examples is seldom commonly known. Featuring entries such as Milgram's experiment, in which 62 per cent of participants willingly electrocuted another person, cognitive dissonance, the Oedipus and Electra complexes, nature versus nurture and the Rorschach test, Freudian Slips will cover everything you need to know about this mercurial branch of science.
