Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and its functions, especially those affecting behaviour in a given context. Why study psychology? Psychology has assumed an increasingly important role in solving human problems as society has became progressively more complex. Psychologists are concerned with a variety of problems. What child-rearing methods produce happy and effective adults? How can mental illness be prevented? What can be done to eliminate race prejudice? What family and social conditions contribute to alienation, aggression and crime? How should the dials on the instrument panel of jet aircraft be arranged to minimalise pilot error? Psychology affects our lives through its influence on laws and public policy. Laws concerning discrimination, capital punishment and the conditions under which a person may be held legally responsible for his actions are influenced by psychological theories of human nature.
