Description

Today's psychologist is apt to be very different from the image most people conjure up when asked to picture one - an image that almost always suggests Sigmund Freud or someone like him, complete with leather couch.

But as indebted as they may be to Freud's landmark explorations of our psychological landscape, modern psychologists are involved in far more than helping people cope with their inner demons. Instead, they are working in areas that now encompass every part of the process by which we develop and function as people:

  • How we perceive, remember, and learn
  • How we select our friends and partners and retain their affection and love
  • The things that motivate us

Now you can gain a basic introduction to psychology - beginning with its historical context and looking ahead to some of the directions it is likely to take in the future - in this fascinating series of 36 lectures from an acclaimed teacher and author. It explores all of the many new areas that now fit comfortably beneath psychology's umbrella and the sophisticated new research methods that have emerged.

These lectures are both an excellent summary of a transformed profession and an ideal starting point for those eager to expand their understanding of the human mind.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Great listen

Good overview of Psychology with personal opinions, which often lacking in textbooks. The book is also a good supplement for an introductory course.

Loved It

I downloaded 5 psychology books and this the only one that caught my attention. He breaks down all the different areas of psychology and it's very easy to understand. I have recommended this audio book to many people. I would definitely recommend it.

Should be titled Intro to Psychology

Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor David W. Martin?

Probably not since the professor did not go out of his way to make the course especially interesting or unique.

Would you be willing to try another book from The Great Courses? Why or why not?

Most books from The Great Courses are excellent, but sometimes, as in this case, the course was mediocre at best. This was clearly just sections of the first few introductory classes that he usually teaches with nothing extra or particularly interesting to capture your attention.

Did Professor David W. Martin do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

N/A

Could you see Psychology of Human Behavior being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Absolutely not.

Any additional comments?

Course does not really get interesting until lecture 23. This course does not emphasize human behavior, and, in reality, is only about human behavior to the same extent that all of psychology captures that topic. The professor made an obvious and dangerous blunder when describing the scientific method in terms of its origin and reliability. I think that was maybe in lecture 4, and he basically indicated that the scientific method is nothing more than a choice in epistemology that some people have decided to accept as a means to obtaining knowledge - somewhat like a faith-based methodology. This is clearly wrong; there are much better reasons for how and why the scientific method evolved into what it is today, and why it is continually relied upon.

Extremly intresting course

Would you listen to Psychology of Human Behavior again? Why?

A great overview of subjects in psychology and a lot of material packed in the lectures so it is a great place to revisit.

amazing!

dense material, but extremely good, especially toward the end. the chapters are just the right length: not too long, not too short.

Magnificent! 97/100

I have over a hundred audiobooks and taken many of the Great Curses, several psychology related and this is the first time I felt I compelled to write a review specially for the long time I and you will invest on it.

If you are looking for complete overview of the field of psychology look no further this is it.

Very well structured
Very clear
Great examples
Down to earth
The profesor makes an excellent job over all since I never got bored.

If you are wondering if there is something bad the only MINOR thing I notice is every now and then he gets tangle with the words but since it seems to be a life performance is completely natural.

If any errors on this review please excuse my spelling, grammar, and punctuation. English is not my native language.

Horribly outdated, meandering presentation

I've listened up to lesson 6 and can't go further. The prof. speaks clearly but his lectures seem vacuous and devoid of much critical engagement with his discipline, making them semi-unbearable to listen to. The two lectures on Freud are what finally did me in, the prof. must have trained decades ago and hasn't stayed current since then. His presentation style is meandering, but at least that helps you avoid thinking about how poorly framed most of his points are.

Wonderful overview

What did you love best about Psychology of Human Behavior?

This lecture series covers essentially every concept discussed in an introductory psychology course. Because I was familiar with many of the concepts, the lectures were easy to follow and addictive to listen to. Dr. Martin provides additional information on evolutionary psychology that I had not previously heard of.

Awesome Investment

If you have ever wondered the why or how of how us humans work, this is an awesome choice. Engaging and easy to comprehend, Dr. Martin does a fantastic job of using proper terminology while he accessible to all backgrounds.

Great Introductionary Course! Great Speaker!

Love from Germany (non-native speaker of English)! I highly recommand this Course, the professor is a pleasure to listen to, my English is not the best, but I understood everything perfectly!
The course could be cheaper, though, tbh!
