Liam Hudson (1933–2005) was a British social psychologist and author. Richard Webster writes that Hudson's work provides the best introduction to "the general question of the psychological correlates of intellectual specialisation", and praises his Contrary Imaginations and Frames of Mind as "rich storehouses of evidence, insight and careful inference."[1]
