It's the latest installment of Lois Holzman's "The Overweight Brain: How Our Obsession with Knowing Keeps Us from Getting Smart Enough to Make a Better World." Whether you've been following the chapter-by-chapter roll-out, or are spying this provocative text for the first time, be advised that Chapter 6, "Psychology Made Its Bed, And We're the Ones Who Have to Lie in It," is a devastatingly argued, all-out assault on what Holzman and Fred Newman have long pointed to as the "scam" and "sham" of "scientific psychology." Holzman exposes the invalidity of psychology's natural science method as applied to human beings and goes on to explain how its "discovery" of intelligence, developmental milestones, and the myriad of "mental disorders" are in fact inventions.
