The Dilemma of Psychology

A Psychologist Looks at His Troubled Profession


About The Book

Featuring a new introduction by Dr. Stanley Krippner—coeditor of the best-selling Broken Images, Broken Selves—this expanded edition of The Dilemma of Psychology reveals why more than 100 years of psychology and armies of psychotherapists have not helped to solve humanity's most pressing issues. Uncompromising, 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.
