Einführung in die Psychologie

Eine aus 20 Videos bestehende Einführung in die Psychologie („Introduction to Psychology“) durch Paul Bloom von der Yale University umreißt das weite Gebiet der Psychologie, das über die Auseinandersetzung mit den Grundlagen von Wahrnehmung, Lernen, Gedächtnis bis hin zu Freud und manch populärwissenschaftlichen Aspekten wie den Grundlagen des Glücks reicht: „What do your dreams mean? Do men and women differ in the nature and intensity of their sexual desires? Can apes learn sign language? Why can’t we tickle ourselves? This course tries to answer these questions and many others, providing a comprehensive overview of the scientific study of thought and behavior. It explores topics such as perception, communication, learning, memory, decision-making, religion, persuasion, love, lust, hunger, art, fiction, and dreams. We will look at how these aspects of the mind develop in children, how they differ across people, how they are wired-up in the brain, and how they break down due to illness and injury.“
