Contents

A year since the first lockdown, a year in which so many have lost so much (p.24). A loose theme flows through this issue, of being lost and finding your way.

As psychologists, what have we lost during the pandemic? Judging from my inbox at times, I’m tempted to say ‘the plot’. As Stuart Ritchie says (p.10), many of the psychological questions around the pandemic are complex and nuanced. But when readers email to argue that Covid is no more serious than the flu, and that masks have no impact… well, then I question whether some – admittedly a minority – have lost sight of science and compassion. In ‘News’, we consider the death of nuanceand whether this is acritical point for psychology. There’s so much more to find in this issue. Like most of you, we’ve lost a lot through a year of remote working. But thanks to ourfantastic teamand withcontributions from hundreds of you, we’ve found a way to bring you packed editionsandmore to discover on our website than ever.
