This is just horrendous. What is psychology for? Isn’t it supposed to serve people? 미국 최대의 심리학회 APA의 저명한 과학자들이 CIA의 고문기법에 대한 옹호의견을 냈다는 소식입니다. 심리학은 사람을 위해 존재하는 학문 아니었던가요? 유감스럽고 끔찍한 일이네요.

“Two former presidents of the psychological association were on a C.I.A. advisory committee, the report found. One of them gave the agency an opinion that sleep deprivation did not constitute torture, and later held a small ownership stake in a consulting company founded by two men who oversaw the agency’s interrogation program, it said.”
