This insightful 24-lecture audio course offers you a gripping survey of the most important discoveries in psychology. How do we perceive the world around us? What drives us? How can science help us understand our minds and motivations, along with those of others? 

Answering these essential questions helps you improve your well-being, empathize with others, and unravel the mysteries of human behavior. And perhaps no field has advanced our knowledge of these topics as much as psychology. 

With the guidance of award-winning psychologist and Carleton College professor Lawrence Wichlinski, you’ll gain a sweeping arc of insights into our minds, motivations, and memories, and much more. 

You will begin with a tour of the brain, gaining tremendous insights into its remarkable capabilities and intricacies. From there, you’ll learn about social psychology and the cognitive forces that guide our fundamental behaviors: sleep, food, and sex. You will also learn to see the common mental disorders you’re familiar with—whether you’ve experienced them yourself or know someone who has—in a new light.
