Philosopher and psychotherapist Fred Newman and developmental psychologist Lois Holzman challenge psychology’s understandings of what a human being is, what mental illness is, and how people develop and learn. They show how these understandings were created, marketed and sold to the American public. Going beyond critique, the authors argue that instead of psychology, what people the world over need is a cultural, performatory approach to human life. Unscientific Psychology is based on the authors’ twenty-five year practice of creating such an approach and the network of therapeutic and educational projects that have been built with it.
