Ernst Eduard Boesch Discovering Cultural Psychology. A Profile and Selected Readings of Ernest E. Boesch (PB)

This book is a landmark in contemporary cultural psychology. ErnestBoesch's synthesis of ideas is the first comprehensive theory of culture inpsychology since Wilhelm Wundt's Völkerpsychologie of the first decades ofthe twentieth century. Cultural psychology of today is an attempt toadvance the program of research that was charted out by Wundt-yet attimes we are carefully avoiding direct recognition of such continuity.While Wundt's experimental psychology has been hailed as the root forcontemporary scientific psychology, the other side of his contribution-ethnographic analysis of folk traditions and higher psychological functions-has been largely discredited as something disconnected from thescientific realm. As an example of "soft" science-lacking the "hardness"of experimentation-it has been considered to be an esoteric hobby of thefounding father of contemporary psychology. Of course that focus is profoundlywrong-the opposition "soft" versus "hard" just does not fit as ametalevel organizer of any science. Yet the rhetoric discounting thedescriptive side of Wundt's psychology is merely an act of social guidanceof what psychologists do-not a way of creating knowledge.

What can we know and what should we believe about today's world? What to Believe Now: Applying Epistemology to Contemporary Issues applies the concerns and techniques of epistemology to a wide variety of contemporary issues. Questions about what we can know-and what we should believe-are first addressed through an explicit consideration of the practicalities of working these issues out at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Coady calls for an 'applied turn' in epistemology, a process he likens to the applied turn that transformed the study of ethics in the early 1970s. Subjects dealt with include: Experts-how can we recognize them? And when should we trust them? Rumors-should they ever be believed? And can they, in fact, be a source of knowledge? Conspiracy theories-when, if ever, should they be believed, and can they be known to be true? The blogosphere-how does it compare with traditional media as a source of knowledge and justified belief? Timely, thought provoking, and controversial, What to Believe Now offers a wealth of insights into a branch of philosophy of growing importance-and increasing relevance-in the twenty-first century.

Methodological Thinking in Psychology. 60 Years Gone Astray. (PB)

A volume in Advances in Cultural PsychologySeries Editor: Jaan Valsiner, Clark UniversityIn recent years an increasing dissatisfaction with methods and thinking in psychology as ascience can be observed. The discipline is operating under the tension between the traditionalquantitative and the new qualitative methodologies. New approaches emerge in different fieldsof psychology and education-each of them trying to go beyond limitations of the mainstream.These new approaches, however, tend to be "historically blind" - seemingly novel ideas haveactually been common in some period in the history of psychology. Knowledge of historical trends in that context becomes crucialbecause analysis of historical changes in psychology is informative regarding the potential of "new/old and forgotten" approaches inthe study of psyche. Some approaches in psychology disappeared due to inherent limitations of them; the others disappeared due topurely non-scientific reasons. And some new approaches were rejected long ago for well-justified scientific reasons.This book brings together contributions from leading scholars in different fields of psychology - cognitive psychology,developmental psychology, cultural psychology, methodology of psychology. Each of the contributors discusses methodological issuesthat were more thoroughly understood more than half a century ago than they are now. Overall, the contributions support the idea thatin important ways 60 years old psychology was far...

Paul C. Larson Psychological Healing Paul C. Larson Psychological Healing Новинка

Paul C. Larson Psychological Healing

This book is intended as a text in the history and philosophy of professional psychology. It takes a broad view of psychological healing and traces the history of this endeavor from prehistoric times down to the present. The story should be useful not only to graduate students in professional psychology, but to others in the psycho-social or behavioral health fields. It emphasizes the importance of multicultural and diversity issues by covering a wide swath of relevant world history to help students understand the cultural matrix that is behind the many people we serve. America is a nation of immigrants and they bring with them the legacy of their varied backgrounds. A major metaphor is the stream of transmission. We practice based on what our teachers knew, we improve upon them, and in turn, pass them on to our students. This extended lineage of psychological healing can be summed in four archetypal roles: the shaman and priest, the physician, the teacher, and the scientist. Modern professional psychology incorporates all of those, and this book seeks to tell that story.""Paul Larson astutely unfolds this project with Aristotelian phronesis: translating history for situational practice in the contemporary role transformation of psychologists as 'health service professionals.' Larson's work explicates how this will happen by beautifully tying together history, critical thinking, and pragmatics so the reader can experience the history and systems of psychol...

Eddie Fisher, Yorkys Santana Gonzales Increasing Brain Power beyond Imagination-Aligning Neuroscience and Social Psychology to aid Prevention

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject Psychology - Miscellaneous, grade: N/A, Universidad de Oriente in Santiago de Cuba (Social Psychology), language: English, abstract: Brain science and cognitive psychology are in high demand amongst professions such as social psychology, education and science. Advancing the capabilities of the human brain in terms of power to benefit society and improve people's lives has become a topic of increasing value and interest to social psychologists. This research, limited to a literature review and a number of face to face interviews with psychology students to add some contemporary perspectives, investigated how increases in brain power could be achieved and what the potential benefits could be to social psychologists. Results suggest that short term brain power increases can be achieved through the application of low risk neurocognitive approaches such as brain training and by consuming natural brain foods and nutritional brain drugs. Infra-red laser stimulation of certain parts of the human brain not only increases cognitive brain power permanently but has the potential to reduce or eliminate brain diseases such as dementia and autism. Caution should be exercised to maintain the humanity element of what makes people human prior to engaging in long term brain power increase activities.

William James The Principles of Psychology (Volume 2 of 2)

Brother of novelist Henry James and godson of eminent philosopher, essayist and poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, William James earned his own reputation for the monumental contributions he made in the field of Psychology. Here is the second volume of James' two part "Principles of Psychology," a textbook which took James twelve years to complete, and which is still prevalent in contemporary psychology texts. James' writings were influenced by Charles Darwin's ideas about adaptive evolutionary change, philosophical pragmatism, and various German psychologists who focused on the study of psychological processes. These two volumes delve into James' assumption that developmental processes involve an interaction of nature and nurture, a view that almost all contemporary developmental psychologists hold. His fundamental theories on brain processes and abstract thought, behavioral tendencies and states of consciousness, all of which he presented a decade before Sigmund Freud, have become integral to the framework of modern social psychology.

Margaret Choi Kwan Lam Scenography as New Ideology in Contemporary Curating and the Notion of Staging in Exhibitions

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Art - Miscellaneous, grade: Distinction, Kingston University London (Kingston University London, in Partnership with the Design Museum, London, U.K.), course: MA Curating Contemporary Design, language: English, abstract: In the frontier of the exhibition scene, a significant phenomenon is observed that a contemporary artistic staging practice, called scenography, has grew out from the theatre context and keeps expanding its influence in the exhibition context in recent time. Scenography has been acting as a transformative force to reform the traditional exhibitionary complex, and consequently, this has led to an unprecedented intersection where scenography meets contemporary curating, which further informs a radical ideological shift. This paper aims to exploit a new land of discussion to look into this intersection between scenographic practice and contemporary curating, its mergence and the subsequent revolution it has caused.By seeing museums and exhibition spaces as metaphorical stages, it fundamentally reconfigures the infrastructure of curating practices, in terms of a shift in authorship, architectural embodiment of ideas, field of experience, layered narrative, dramaturgy and the hybrid expressions of new media. Three case studies will demonstrate scenography's wide-ranged capacities and various methodologies in dealing with contemporary issues. Cases include: BMW Museum (Reopened in 2008), Cultures of the Worl...

Taking a refreshingly different approach to the subject, this new textbook uses original case studies of psychological support work with individual athletes and groups to illustrate the underlying theory and inform the reader of cutting edge practice in the field. It addresses ‘real world’ issues and helps the student understand the problems and challenges that the sport psychologist faces and is employed to resolve. The book begins by exploring the use of case studies as a professional method for disseminating applied knowledge and practice in sport psychology. The remaining chapters constitute the core of the book: the case studies themselves. Each case study demonstrates scientific rigour in reporting the background information, initial assessment, intervention and monitoring, evaluation of the intervention, and also considers consultant effectiveness through reflective practice. The chapters also contain summaries and an accompanying set of questions for students. Written by a team of experienced practitioners this book shows how sport psychology actually works in practice. As such it will prove invaluable to students of sport psychology in both sport and exercise science and psychology programmes. It will also be an extremely useful resource for coaches and sports professionals undergoing training in sport psychology.
