Dreams: A Study of the Dreams of Jung, Descartes, Socrates, and Other Historical Figures, Marie-Louise Von Franz; Foreword By Robert Hinshaw
7 Dreams: A Study of the Dreams of Jung, Descartes, Socrates, and Other Historical Figures

Marie-Louise Von Franz; Foreword By Robert Hinshaw

Shambhala, Boston, USA, 1985, 1-57062-035-0 / 9781570620355, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 Cms x 22 Cms 
These collected essays by the distinguished psychoanalyst Marie-Louise von Franz offer fascinating insights into the study of dreams, not only psychologically, but also from historical, religious, and philosophical points of view. In the first two chapters, the author offers general explanations of the nature of dreams and their use in analysis. She examines how dreams can be used in the development of self-knowledge and describes how C. G. Jung worked with his own dreams, and the fateful ways in which they were entwined with the course of his life. The rest of the book records and interprets dreams of historical personages: Socrates, Descartes, Themistocles and Hannibal, and the mothers of Saint Augustine, Saint Bernard of Clairvaux, and Saint Dominic. Connections are revealed between the personal and family histories of the dreamers and individual and collective mores of their times. Dreams includes writings long out of print or never before available in English translation. Printed Pages: 216. 010468

10 Human Abilities in Cultural Context

S.H. Irvine and J.W. Berry (eds.)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1988, 0-521-34482-4 / 9780521344821, First Edition, Hard Cover, Fine, Fair, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Human Abilities in Cultural Context constitutes a major new reference frame for conceptualizing and studying human abilities. It is a unique contribution. Part I offers a reevaluation of ability theory by the editors, S. H. Irvine and J. W. Berry, and strong individual statements by H. J. Eysenck, Arthur R. Jensen, Joseph R. Royce, and Robert J. Sternberg, who represent markedly different approaches to the measurement of intelligence. Part II reviews various regional and national empirical studies in Britain, Norway, Turkey, Australia, China, Japan, SOuthern Africa, and North America. Part III focuses on contexts in which the limits of assessment by psychological tests are defined: in minority native groups in North America, in migrants to Britain, in lower-caste enclaves in India, among African minorities, and among Australian Aborigines. Written by long-term residents of the regions in question, these chapters present a wealth of new data that has been ignored in Western formulations of theory and practice. After five years of editorial labor, Irvine and Berry have issued one of the best-informed, most sustained scientific challenges to conventional wisdom about the nature of mental abilities and the conditions that foster their development in decades - a challenge to which psychologists and educators must respond.

18 Psychology and Experience

Benjamin Bradley

Cambridge University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-521-01199-X / 9780521011990, First Paperback Edition, Paperback, New, 150 x 230 Mm 
If personal experience is the basic raw material for psychology, why do all the major psychologies of the past century marginalise or deny it? In this thought-provoking new book Benjamin Bradley shows how our everyday experiences need to be at the core of the scientific discipline. He calls for a move away from attempts to reconcile the many contrasting and often opposing theories and philosophies of contemporary psychology, and instead puts forward a scholarly and exciting new vision for psychology which focuses on the ‘here-and-now?and the importance of others as equals in teaching and research. He encourages the reader to reconsider the very basis of our understanding of what experience is. This uniquely inspiring and practical text will prove an invaluable resource for all those interested in teaching, learning and researching about the mind. ?A thought provoking study which reclaims the psychology of experience ?Realigns assumptions made about the discipline of psychology ?Professor Bradley is a well respected psychologist who has published widely in the areas of developmental and social psychology Contents Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Learning from experience; 3. From here to synchrony; 4. What to make of coincidence; 5. The topography of intersubjective space; 6. The two axes of psychological explanation; 7. Pictures of psychical change; 8. Research among equals; 9. Validating the curriculum; 10. Conclusion. Printed Pages: 256. 014378

22 The Making of Cognitive Science: Essays in Honour of George A. Miller

William Hirst (ed.)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1988, 0-521-34255-4 / 9780521342551, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, Very Good, 16 Cms x 24 Cms 
Cognitive Science is a relatively new field that has grown to maturity over the past 30 years. It represents the convergence of workers in diverse disciplines- artificial intelligence, cognitive psychology- in a unified effort to understand human mental life. This book is a collection of essays about the development of cognitive science by colleagues of George A. Miller, a central figure whose own intellectual history is to a large extent a history of the field. The distinguished contributors were invited to write about the period in which each of them was most closely associated with him - to try to recapture on paper the intellectual climate of the time and to place, retrospectively, each successive research venture in its larger context. They take the story from work on formalism in psychology in the late 1950¹s to the organization of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Harvard, where many first-generation cognitive psychologists were trained, to the expanding interdisciplinary enterprises of first psycholinguistics and then the cognitive neuroscience, and finally to the institutionalization of cognitive science within universities. Together, they essays constitute a fascinating and readable personal account of the way in which an exciting new science has come into being. The Making of Cognitive Science will be welcomed by broad audience in the cognitive science community, as well as by historians of psychology. Printed Pages: 296. 003131
