Movie Reviews

An excellent introduction to psychology
Woody | Birmingham, Alabama, USA | 07/16/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"For anyone curious about the origins of psychology, this video is a "must see". It entertains and informs the audience of the origins of modern psychology - abreviated, of course - shedding light into the thoughts of Freud, Skinner, and others; it evens discusses the speculative origins of the Nazi genocide of Jews and eugenics. An excellent and entertaining video, I highly recommend it for the video of WWI "shell shock" cases, as well as the history behind modern psychopharmacology.

This is a great video; I plan to buy at least two copies, so that I can loan a copy out and never worry about being without to share with friends. I gave it four stars only because I felt that it needed more time to expound on the details of Freud's development of his theories and its complete exclusion of Jung's work. In fact, I know you can't cover everything in a single one-hour video, but I feel that Jung was mis-represented by being excluded. Do your own research..."
