The Philosophy of Psychology

Some of the issues studied by the philosophy of psychology are epistemological concerns about the methodology of psychological investigation. For example: What is the most appropriate methodology for psychology: mentalism, behaviorism, or a compromise? Are self-reports a reliable data-gathering[1] method? What conclusions can be drawn from null hypothesis tests? Can first-person experiences (emotions, desires, beliefs, etc.) be measured objectively?

Feminism and Psychology

Starting in the 1960s, feminists argued that the discipline ofpsychology had neglected the study of women and genderand misrepresented women in its research and theories.Feminists also posed many questions worthy of being ad-dressed by psychological science. This call for researchpreceded the emergence of a new and influential body ofresearch on gender and women that grew especially rap-idly during the period of greatest feminist activism

Psychological Similarities and Differences between Women and Men across Cultures

Most research looking at psychological similarities and differences betweenwomen and men has been carried out in North America and Western Europe.In this paper, I review a body of cross-cultural evidence showing that it isprecisely in these Western countries that women and men differ the most interms of personality, self-construal, values, or emotions. Much less-pronouncedgender differences are observed, if at all, in Asian and African countries. Thesefindings are unexpected from the perspectives of the two most influentialframeworks applied to sex differences coming from evolutionary psychology andsocial role theory. However, recent research related to social comparison andself-categorization theories suggests a promising approach to explain why moreegalitarian societies can paradoxically create greater psychological differencesbetween women and men.

Mindfulness Meditation for everyday life

Guess what? When it comes right down to it, wherever you go, there you are. Whatever you wind up doing, that's what you've wound up doing. Whatever you are thinking right now, that's what's on your mind. Whatever has happened to you, it has already happened. The important question is, how are you going to handle it? In other words, "Now what?"

IN THE VAULT

There is nothing more absurd, as I view it, than that conventional association of the homely and the wholesome which seems to pervade the psychology of the multitude. Mention a bucolic Yankee setting, a bungling and thick-fibered village undertaker, and a careless mishap in a tomb, and no average reader can be brought to expect more than a hearty albeit grotesque phase of comedy. God knows, though, that the prosy tale which George Birch's death permits me to tell has in it aspects beside which some of our darkest tragedies are light. Birch acquired a limitation and changed his business in 1881, yet never discussed the case when he could avoid it.

Psychology of Parent-Child Relationship

Findings that have been gained from psychological studies on parentchild relationship desired for the healthy development of the mind in infants, with particular emphasis on how to raise infants are discussed herein. First, a conceptual scheme to examine mother-infant relationship, the most important aspect of early parent-child relationship, is presented. For instance, structural components of mother-infant interactions are shown diagrammatically. Based on the figures, development of infants during the first two years since birth is discussed in relation to the mother-infant interactions by dividing it into three phases. Specifically, primary characteristics of developmental changes in the ability of infants to communicate during the first two months of life, two to six months, and six to 18 months are exemplified, and the characteristics of the mother-infant interactions strongly related to such changes are organized. Subsequently, how the behavioral changes in parent-child relationship might be related to the tasks concerning mind development in infants is clarified. Finally, the current situation of the parenting environment in Japan, including the issue of participation by fathers, and clinical tasks are presented.

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a fixed mindset—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a growth mindset—those who believe that abilities can be developed. Mindset reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment. In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own. Praise for Mindset “A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success “An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”—Library Journal (starred review) “Everyone should read this book.”—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of Made to Stick “One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”—Po Bronson, author of NurtureShock “If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read Mindset.”—Guy Kawasaki, author of The Art of the Start 2.0

Souvenirs de la maison des morts

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky (November 11 [O.S. October 30] 1821 – February 9 [O.S. January 28] 1881) is considered one of two greatest prose writers of Russian literature, alongside close contemporary Leo Tolstoy. Dostoevsky's works have had a profound and lasting effect on twentieth-century thought and world literature. Dostoevsky's chief ouevre, mainly novels, explore the human psychology in the disturbing political, social and spiritual context of his 19th-century Russian society. Considered by many as a founder or precursor of 20th-century existentialism, his Notes from Underground (1864), written in the anonymous, embittered voice of the Underground Man, is considered by Walter Kaufmann as the "best overture for existentialism ever written."
