Traces developments in human psychology over the course of the twentieth century, beginning with B. F. Skinner and the legend of the child raised in a box.
Annotation:
Lauren Slater, a psychologist, a former mental patient, and the author of LISTENING TO PROZAC and LYING, A METAPHORICAL MEMOIR, examines the most significant psychology experiments of the 20th century, including Stanley Milgram's electric-shock obedience studies and Harry Harlow's researches on "wire monkey" attachment. As the title suggests, Slater also discusses B. F. Skinner's experiments on behavior modification, and experiments from the 1970s on how easy it is to get admitted to a mental institution and, subsequently, how difficult it is to obtain a release. The author's own experiences as both a psychologist and a patient inform the writing.
