The focus on behaviour and empiricism has produced a text that is better organized, has fewer chapters, and is somewhat shorter than many of the leading books. The beginning of each section includes learning objectives; throughout the body of each section are key terms in bold followed by their definitions in italics; key takeaways, and exercises and critical thinking activities end each section"--BCcampus website.

Editor: Rex Bookstore, Inc.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"In contemplating a revision of our Psychology: a Factual Textbook, we turned for criticisms and suggestions to the psychologists who were known to be using the book. Very soon it became evident, with their replies in hand for analysis, that something more than a revision would be necessary to satisfy the needs of many teachers. Our aim in this new text has been to respond to the temper of the times without losing the authority that comes with multiple authorship by experts, and equally without diminishing, we hope, the seriousness of the scientific approach to the problems of psychology. This new book is so much more than a revision of the old that we have given it a new title. In it we have turned the old book hind part to, beginning with the consideration of conduct and ending with the treatment of perception. The book is considerably enlarged, with some new chapters and some new collaborators. As was the case in the first book, these expert authors have formulated in the first instance the content of the chapters, but thereafter we as editors have freely exercised our right to alter their texts in the interests of unity in the whole."

Release: 2015-01-15
Editor: Cambridge University Press

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

"Our topic here is psychology, the self-styled science of the mind. Psychology's aim is to explain mental phenomena by describing the underlying processes, systems, and mechanisms that give rise to them. These hidden causal levers underlie all of our mental feats, including our richest conscious perceptions, our most subtle chains of reasoning, and our widest-ranging plans and actions. While the phenomena of mind are intimately related to events occurring in the brain, these psychological explanations are, we will argue, distinct and autonomous from explanations in terms of neural processes and mechanisms. According to the view we present here, psychology and neuroscience are different enterprises. We certainly wouldn't claim that our ever-increasing understanding of how the brain works has nothing to say to psychology: on the contrary, they are complimentary, since neuroscience can provide invaluable input to psychological theorizing (and vice versa, a point that we think is not stressed often enough). But our task will be to give a thorough account of the scope, methods, content, and prospects for a distinctive science of our mental lives"--

Release: 2015-09-16
Editor: Routledge

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

As the first introductory statement of the ‘new psychology’, Motives and Mechanisms, originally published in 1985, aims to bring the study of human action to the forefront of the subject. Like any science, the practice of psychology is very much influenced by the hidden assumptions of its practitioners. The argument put forward in this important text shows how these assumptions can be brought out by comparing psychology with the natural sciences and with common-sense understanding. In pursuing the integration of traditional research methods with a new style of investigation, the basic principle is that social structures and mental structures are in reciprocal relation with one another because each is involved in the creation of the other. By adopting this principle social structures become the basis for research into the cognitive and emotional organization of mind. The authors devote two key chapters to the central question that underlies this stance: are human actions and human actors’ products of internal processes, such as those described by Freud, or of external social forces, of the kind described by Mead?
