Gain An Understanding Of The Approaches On Human Thought And Behaviour

Have you ever wondered why you are afraid of spiders, and what you can do to cure yourself? Have you ever despaired over the prejudice and discrimination in the world and wondered what can be done about it?

Have you ever watched a week-old baby seemingly studying intently the people and objects around it and wondered what on earth it makes of its new world, and just what thoughts, if any, might be going through its mind?
