Product description

From the Back Cover

Does House use humor to mask his true self?

At what point does an indulgence become an addiction?

Can anything make Taub happy?

How does Cameron′s past affect all of her future relationships?

Why does everyone lie?

Gregory House is a medical genius and a Sherlock Holmesian figure, but he′s also a self–destructive, deeply troubled misanthrope. What is it about this angry, arrogant curmudgeon that is so appealing to us? House and Psychology offers a fascinating psychological profile of Gregory House and his team at Princeton–Plainsboro Hospital. Is House a hero or an antihero? Does Wilson need House′s emotional support? Are all of the relationships on this show doomed to fail? The answers to these questions allow us to appreciate our favorite characters more deeply but also serve as a crystal–clear window into our own behavior. Why do we deceive people? How do we define addiction? Can we help others without expecting anything in return? Combining psychological theory with the latest in psychological research, House and Psychology lets us understand what makes this show tick.
