Clear Thinking with Psychology: Separating Sense from Nonsense

Front Cover
Brooks/Cole-Thomson Learning, 2002 - Psychology - 220 pages
Do your students have the tools to distinguish between the true science of human thought and behavior, and pop psychology? Ruscio's new book provides a tangible and compelling framework for making that distinction. Because we are inundated with "scientific" claims, the author does not merely differentiate science and pseudoscience, but goes further to teach the fundamentals of scientific reasoning on which students can base their evaluation of information.
