About this book

In a lively and subversive analysis, psychologist John Lambie explains how to see another person's point of view while remaining critical – in other words how to be 'critically open-minded'. Using entertaining examples from history and psychology, Lambie explores the implications of critical open-mindedness for scientific and moral progress.

Reviews

"In this wide-ranging study, John Lambie combines insights from psychology with memorable historical examples to engage the reader in a thought-provoking exploration of open-mindedness and its role in moral decision-making and the search for knowledge." - William Hare, Mount Saint Vincent University, Canada
