Inhaltsangabe: This book is about the most anxious, emotionally insecure, and analyzed population in history, the citizens of the contemporary Psychological Society. It is also about that group's practitioners, the psychiatrists and psychologists who have built an elaborate professional structure to cater to our emotional needs. There has been obvious external transformation in our modern world, but the internal shift in man's psyche has altered both our actions and expectations more than any outside force. The change has taken place quietly, yet it has altered the nature of our civilization beyond recognition. The major agent of change has been modern psychology. When Sigmund Freud visited Clark University in Massachusetts in 1909, psychology was an infant discipline. Today, psychology is an art, science, therapy, religion, moral code, life style, philosophy and cult. It sits at the very center of contemporary society as an international colossus whose professional minions are legion. Its ranks include psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers, psychiatric nurses, school psychologists, guidance counselors, marriage and family therapists, educational psychologists, Sensitivity T- Group and Encounter leaders, and assorted lay therapists. Recently, it has added a number of newly hyphenated professionals including psycholinguists, biopsychologists and psychobiographers. The new Society flourishes on the belief that human technology can remake man as effortlessly as a computerized assembly line. Santayana observed that life is a predicament. The Psychological Society seeks to repeal that truth by offering its techniques as the hope for a scientific Utopia. This book will search out that technology and those who operate it. We will attempt to learn how and why it works, or fails. Only by examining it without awe can we learn how worthwhile, how scientific, how enlightened, or how false and debilitating the Psychological Society truly is.
