The Psychology of the Simpsons

D’oh!
Edited by Alan Brown, Ph.D. with Chris Logan

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.
