This month’s cover feature is a ‘long read’, an edited and adapted extract from a recent book by a psychologist, thinker and writer I have long admired – Michael Billig.
The message of Mick’s article is important, including what he has to say on writing in psychology. As a magazine, constantly seeking to engage as well as inform, through a mix of the personal and professional, we often echo his advice to‘populate’ your writing. ‘May you overspill your examples with your own distinctive character, broad vision and humane understanding’, Billig urges.
This doesn’t mean abandoning the scientiﬁc. We just think the people behind the science, and the science behind people, are our best shot at reaching ourincreasingly large and wide audience(in print and online).
If you could tell a story around your work – with our help – then we want to hear from you. The Psychologist is your magazine, and this is your chance to shape it.
