Great Ideas in Psychology

PSY 405S

Ideas in psychology drawn from many content areas (including perception, personality, motivation, biological, social, cognitive, developmental) and approaches (including laboratory experiments, questionnaires, observation, imaging, interview, computer simulation). We will examine what makes ideas good, great, and mediocre, and also examine 'bad ideas' in psychology. Course functions as a capstone experience -- an opportunity to synthesize previous knowledge, fill in missing areas, and reflect on the nature of ideas in the field. Implications for evaluating ideas in any academic discipline.
