Isaac Newton portrait

“If I have seen further it is by standing on ye sholders of Giants” ~ Isaac Newton, natural philosopher

What are we to take from Newton’s observation nowadays? What advice does it hold for us?

I take it to mean that we should look at what has already been discovered. Marvellous new insights about how the mind works are constantly being discovered by researchers; I do my best to pass on some of these to you in this blog.

When you read about some new discovery in psychology (assuming that it’s been reported correctly – it’s always better go to the original research, or at least, as scientific papers are often hard to read, to a report or press release that gives a link back to the original), ask yourself this question:

“What are the implications for how I live and work?”
