Reuven and Danny's heated discussion about the value of experimental psychology and Freud  reveals their respective world views. Reuven argues that Freudians aren't willing to test their theories  in the real world; therefore, their theories are merely assumptions. Later in Chapter 13, Professor  Appleman, Danny's psychology professor, emphasizes to Danny that Freud might have been a  genius, but he based his theories only on  abnormal  human behavior. Danny is unable to accept  Reuven's and Appleman's arguments: Human behavior does not concern him; psychological  behavior does. Here, Danny's opinion is ironic given the recent information about the great number  of Jews killed in the German concentration camps. Finally, however, after speaking to Appleman  about his concerns, Danny begins to accept the validity of experimental psychology. This acceptance  furthers his development, or maturity, as a character.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
