Psychologists turn their attention to The Simpsons, one of America’s most popular and beloved shows, in these essays that explore the function and dysfunctions of the show’s characters. Designed to appeal to both fans of the show and students of psychology, this unique blend of science and pop culture consists of essays by professional psychologists drawn from schools and clinical practices across the country. Each essay is designed to be accessible, thoughtful, and entertaining, while providing the reader with insights into both The Simpsons and the latest in psychological thought. Every major area of psychology is covered, from clinical psychology and cognition to abnormal and evolutionary psychology, while fresh views on eclectic show topics such as gambling addiction, Pavlovian conditioning, family therapy, and lobotomies are explored.
Alan Brown, PhD, has been a professor of psychology at Southern Methodist University for the past 30 years. He has published more than 50 professional articles and four books in the area of human memory processes. He lives in Dallas, Texas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from a little thought the simpsons and psychology together. Who would guess? The book takes each character and breaks them down to show why they are like that. It shows a little about us as well.
