The Pyschology of Law
Psychology and law are familiar concepts in the experiment we call life. These concepts are of great importance and concern to Psychologists, political scientists, jurists, sociologists, etc. The frequency with which phycology and at times law are misunderstood and misconceived, provoke concern and debate in order to see the relationship between them. One might ask why the order in the arrangement of the concepts, why not law and Psychology but rather Psychology of the law? My answer is simply, it is so arranged because we have Psychology of law, meaning that we can apply psychological lens and principles to these other concepts. The unwearied think that Psychology is not relevant to the concrete realities in the society. This is not true. Psychology is not for those with massive intellects alone, it is approachable, one only need to be disposed, prepared and disciplined. It does not parade only senseless abstract ideas; it rather deals with concrete and particular issues of life.
