Psychology And The Conduct Of Everyday Life. This original and innovative volume offers a basic introduction to the psychological study of the conduct of everyday life in contemporary society. It moves psychological theory and research practice out of the laboratory and into the real world, focusing on the question of how human beings live their everyday life as active subjects and using this as a basis for understanding the dilemmas and contradictions we are confronted with in our lives. The chapters both trace the development of psychological theories of the everyday and offer comparative empirical studies of a variety of everyday practices. Drawing on developments across the social and human sciences, and written by an international group of scholars from a number related disciplines, this collection demonstrates how the study of subjects in the context of their everyday life can contribute to the development of psychological theory, methodology, and practice. Constructed to support an upper-level course on the social psychology of everyday life, the book will also appeal to scholars and researchers throughout psychology and connected branches of the humanities and social sciences.

Synchronicity Science And Soul Making. The pioneering analysis of synchronicity was given by Jung, yet despite the concept's momentous significance in Jung's work, and despite the widespread dissemination of the term 'synchronicity' even within pop culture, synchronicity is often badly misconstrued and remains "perhaps the least understood of Jung's theories". Synchronicity, Science, and Soul-Making has already been hailed as the most important analysis of synchronicity since Jung himself.

Psychology From An Empirical Standpoint. Franz Brentano's classic study Psychology from an Empirical Standpoint was the most important of Brentano's works to be published in his lifetime. A new introduction by Peter Simons places Brentano's work in the context of current philosophical thought. He is able to show how Brentano has emerged since the 1970s as a key figure in both contemporary European and Anglo-American traditions and crucial to any understanding the recent history of philosophy and psychology.

Psychology From The Standpoint Of A Behaviorist. This historic book may have numerous typos, missing text, images, or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1919. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... PSYCHOLOGY FROM THE STANDPOINT OF A BEHAVIORIST CHAPTER I PKOBLEMS AND SCOPE OF PSYCHOLOGY Psychology a Science of Behavior.--Psychology is that division of natural science which takes human activity and conduct as its subject matter. It attempts to formulate through systematic observation and experimentation the laws and principles which, underlie man's reactions. Every one agrees that man's acts are determined by something, and that, whether he acts orderly or not, there are sufficient grounds for his acting as he does act, if only these grounds can be discovered. In order to formulate such laws we must study man in action--his adjustments to the daily situations of life, and to the unusual situations which may confront him. When sufficiently worked out, the principles we obtain from such a study permit of two generalizations: (1) To predict human activity with reasonable certainty. It is sometimes asserted that we can never reach a point where such predictions can be made--that human activity is too variable; and determined by too many momentary conditions to permit us ever to reach such a goal. A little consideration shows that common-sense psychology is already, and has been since the social life of man began, making1 serviceable predictions. Every institution and custom we have depends upon it; for example, our savings banks, churches, and business. When it comes to the individual the facts are not different. We accept a man's note because we predict (not always or ordinarily in words) from our study of his character that he will pay it at the proper time. The wife cheerfully' begins the rearing of a family because she predicts that her husband will remain attached to her, and provide herself and her children with bread. We can bring the matter st...

Contemporary Theories And Systems In Psychology. Twenty years is a long time in the life of a science. While the historical roots of psychology have not changed since the first edition of this book, some of the offshoots of the various theories and systems discussed have been crit ically reexamined and have undergone far-reaching modifications. New and bold research has led to a broadening of perspectives, and recent devel opments in several areas required a considerable amount of rewriting. I have been fortunate in the last fifteen years to have worked with about 2,000 psychologists and other behavioral scientists who contributed to several collected volumes I have edited. As the editor-in-chief of the In ternational Encyclopedia of Psychiatry, Psychology, Psychoanalysis and Neurol ogy, I have had the privilege of reading, scrutinizing, and editing the work of 1,500 experts in psychology and related disciplines. In addition, I have written several books and monographs and over one hundred scientific papers. Armed with all that experience, I have carefully examined the pages of the first edition. Chapter 8 required substantial rewriting and several new sections have been added to other chapters: "Current Soviet Psychol ogy" (Chapter 2, Section 7); "New Ideas on Purposivism" (Chapter 5, Sec tion 4); "Recent Developments in the Sociological School of Psychoanalysis" (Chapter 9, Section 4); and "Present Status of Gestalt Psychology" (Chapter 12, Section 4). Chapter 15 was omitted, and two new chapters were added: Chapter 14 ("Humanistic Psychology") and Chapter 16 ("Selected Research Areas").
