School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 10 UpTwo anthologies that present a wide variety of views on thought-provoking issues and encourage readers to form their own opinions. The readings are written by famous psychologists and philosophers from classical and contemporary times. In Psychology, the original views of theorists such as Freud, Skinner, Elis, Rogers, Maslow, Allport, Erikson, and Piaget are presented along with debates to demonstrate how their ideas apply in real-world situations. A discussion of whether psychological disorders such as alcoholism and depression are determined by socialization or biology is included. Philosophy poses questions about knowledge and reason, the existence of God, the meaning of morality, and the role of government in our lives. Descartes, Locke, Nagel, Hume, Russell, Marx, and Aquinas are all represented. These books can be used as stand-alone titles, as readings to support introductory texts, or for independent study. They are well organized by topic rather than chronologically, and present a balance of pro and con on each issue. Chapter prefaces, indexes, lists of further readings, and study questions add to the value of this series.Sandra L. Doggett, Linganore High School, Frederick, MD
