數世紀以來人類對於心智的運作感到好奇,但是對大部分的人來說,由於理論過於複雜,很難有一個明晰的概念。本書作者Joel Levy以一連串簡單的問題與解答,來解釋心理學的重要研究與理論,追溯關鍵問題的源頭,從各領域的重要思想家的傑出作品中,勾勒出隨著時間不斷發展的心理學理論與概念。

Joel Levy說明了大量神經元形成的固定迴路,是記憶的主要原因,如果迴路的型態不同,那麼記憶就會不一樣。但是這些獨特型態的迴路是如何形成的呢?作者開始生動地描述神經科學家Wilder Panfield所做的實驗,並且附註Panfield在神經心理學上的貢獻。

Can you really tell a criminal by the bumps on his head? What does a memory look like? Can a machine think? Why are some people shy? Is it better not to feel so much? These are some of the many questions that have troubled the minds of some of the greatest thinkers in human civilization and are discussed in this comprehensive yet accessible introduction to psychology.

The complex workings of the mind have fascinated mankind for centuries, but the key theories of psychology are often so complicated that it is almost impossible for the casual reader to understand. In Why We Do the Things We Do, Joel Levy unlocks the important studies and theories in a series of simple questions and answers that shine new and uncomplicated light on the important aspects of psychology. This book will demystify the key questions by tracking their origins in the writings of some of the most prominent thinkers in various fields, showing how these ideas and concepts have developed over time.

With each section broken down into the key concepts, issues and arguments, considering how these ideas influence the way we all go about our daily lives, Why We Do the Things We Do will illuminate this fascinating subject.
