“I’m getting something,” says Shawn, assuming a look of intense concentration and pressing his fingertips to the sides of his head. Shawn Spencer uses lies, pretense, and distraction to get at the truth. But can pseudoscience and fakery really be so helpful? And if they can be, is it ethical to employ them? Psych and Philosophy takes an entertaining tour through the philosophical issues raised by a fake psychic. Can faulty logic get to the truth quicker than good logic? Are other people to blame for Shawn’s deceptions, because they’re more ready to credit him with supernatural powers than with superior natural powers? Is instinct more important than smart thinking—in police work and in life? Is it ethical to tell lies to promote the truth (and protect the public from criminals)? Almost every episode of Psych revolves around a grisly death, treated humorously by the repartee between Shawn and Gus. The show has much to tell us about human ways of coping with death, as well as about the problem of justified knowledge, the ethics of law enforcement, and the interaction of love, friendship, loyalty, and professionalism.

Psych City is a book that is used as a guide to organize a simulated community. The goal of the book is not only to create a simulated community, but also to provide opportunities for those involved in the experience to learn the events and patterns of life found in the community and examine the psychological, social, and political systems that are found in the community. The book is divided into two sections. Section I is the simulation proper, and gives detailed descriptions of simulated living conditions such as geography, population, housing, government, education, finance, and taxes. The first part also assigns the participants to the different roles they have to play and gives the community problems to solve. The second part is made up of sets of readings and exercises that pertain to the different situations found in the simulated community. The text is recommended for psychology, sociology, and anthropology professors that wish to give an interactive learning experience for the entire class, as well as those who wish to further study about community and conduct social experiments.

Major corporations are a part of world-wide industry. They keep the money flowing; they keep the economy rolling. But what is a corporation, really? To Detective Bruno Polidori of the Orlando Police Department, a corporation is nothing but a name on paper. The goings-on of these money-monsters have little to do with Bruno’s everyday life—that is, until one night, when everything goes wrong. An unusual energy flows across the Florida peninsula one night, and the “corporations” suddenly become living, breathing human beings. Not only are they now among the living, but Bruno begins to suspect these newly formed humans are criminal psychopaths. He’s seen his share before, working law enforcement, but nothing like this. These psychopaths don’t just want to wreak havoc; they want to bathe the city in greed. As the police department struggles to stop the psychopaths by brute force, Bruno struggles to understand the psychology of these corporate souls. Each one has a unique personality and pathology, and in order to stop them, he must get close enough to ruin them from the inside. Orlando is falling apart around him. Detective Bruno Polidori is its only hope ... if the corporations don’t kill him first.
