What can science teach us about why humans do bad things? And what do our reactions to deviance teach us about ourselves? Drawing together science, psychology and philosophy, Julia Shaw unlocks the intricacies of the world of criminal psychology. Grappling with thorny dilemmas from ‘Would I kill baby Hitler?’ to ‘Why do I want to murder my spouse?’, she will give you a better understanding of the world, yourself, and your Google search history. Julia is a scientist in the Department of Psychology at University College London. She has consulted as an expert on criminal cases and her work is featured on TV, radio, in print, and online.
