Psychology Book of The Month

The Psychology of Dexter (Psychology of Popular Culture) Edited By Bella DePaulo PhD

Book Description

A great book to add to your summer reading list. In The Psychology of Dexter 17 psychologists and devoted Dexter fans take on the show’s psychological complexities, analyzing not just the title character but also his family, coworkers, and even his viewers.

What can we learn about Dexter from the way he captures, kills, and disposes of his victims?

We know Dexter is a psychopath . . . don’t we? Without the Code of Harry, would Dexter have ever killed at all?

What do Deb’s daddy issues tell us about Dexter—and about Harry?

Was Rita a victim or a manipulator?

Can Jungian theory explain our fascination with Dexter? And do we need to be worried about our own Dark Passengers?

Think you know Dexter? The Psychology of Dexter will make you think again.
