Do psychology and Philosophy Need Each Other?

A lecture by Dr Julian Baggini

Traditional philosophy appears to be inadequate without psychology. It teaches logic but not all the biases of thought that are even more disruptive to good thinking than logical fallacies. Further, moral philosophy really needs to sit on a realistic psychology if it is going to work. At the same time, psychology, in as far as it makes normative claims, is inadequate without philosophy. This talk will examine some of the links between the two subjects and make some suggestions about how they should interact.

Julian Baggini is the editor of The Philosopher’s Magazine, a writer and journalist.
