What makes us who we are? This unit will look at a number of different explanations that psychologists put forward in their attempts to understand why people feel, think and behave the way they do.

This unit is an adapted extract from the course Starting with psychology (Y183) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] , which is part of the Openings Programme.
