Excellent thinking, a must-read for all those interested in how psychology can de-humanise the individual when its methods are based on erroneous and/or questionable logic and philosophy. Although written 30 years ago, this critique of the so-called scientific ideas behind all that doesn't ring true in psychology is as vibrant and relevant as when it was written. Required reading for psychotherapeutic counsellors who wish to avoid disrespect for their clients' views and needs.
