In his new book Michael Billig uses psychology s past to argue that nowadays when we write about the mind we should use more examples and less theory He provides a series of historical studies analysing how key psychological writers used examples Billig offers new insights about famous analysts of the mind such as Locke James Freud Tajfel and Lewin He also champions unfairly forgotten figures like the Earl of Shaftesbury and the eccentric Abraham Tucker There is a cautionary chapter on Lacan warning what can happen when examples are ignored Marie Jahoda is praised as the ultimate example a psychologist from the twentieth century with a social and rhetorical imagination fit for the twenty first More Examples Less Theory is an easy to read book that will inform and entertain academics and their students It will particularly appeal to those who enjoy the details of examples rather than the simplifications of big theory
