In line with the British Psychological Society's recent recommendations for teaching the history of psychology, this comprehensive undergraduate textbook emphasizes the philosophical, cultural and social elements that influenced psychology's development. The authors demonstrate that psychology is both a human (i.e. psychoanalytic or phenomenological) and natural (i.e. cognitive) science, exploring broad social-historical and philosophical themes such as the role of diverse cultures and women in psychology, and the complex relationship between objectivity and subjectivity in the development of psychological knowledge. The result is a fresh and balanced perspective on what has traditionally been viewed as the collected achievements of a few 'great men'. With a variety of learning features, including case studies, study questions, thought experiments and a glossary, this new textbook encourages students to critically engage with chapter material and analyze themes and topics within a social, historical and philosophical framework.

Outline of Theoretical Psychology discusses basic philosophical problems in the discipline and profession of psychology. The author addresses such topics as what it means to be human in psychology; how psychological knowledge is possible and what it consists of; the role of social justice in psychology; and how aesthetic experience could help us to understand the human condition. Proposing possible solutions to a range of such issues, Thomas Teo situates theoretical questions within traditional branches of philosophical inquiry: ontology, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics. This book argues that in order to improve psychology as a discipline and in practice, psychologists must reconceive the unit of psychological analysis, looking beyond individual capacity and even experience. By engaging with these basic philosophical problems, Teo demonstrates how psychology can avoid its common pitfalls and continue as a force for resistance and the good.

Dem Paradigma der verkörperten Kognition zufolge bilden die Bewegungen eines Körpers die Voraussetzung dafür, dass sich intelligentes Verhalten entwickeln kann. Auch Affekte und weitere somatische Dimensionen bestärken die kognitionswissenschaftliche Grundannahme, dass Intelligenz verkörpert ist. Neben diesem Begriff des ,embodiment' existieren jedoch zahlreiche andere Bedeutungen von ,Verkörperung'. So kann mit diesem Begriff gemeint sein, eine Idee oder Eigenschaft zu personifizieren oder ein Abstraktum zu konkretisieren, wie etwa die Fleischwerdung Gottes, das Spielen einer Rolle oder das Tragen einer Maske. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes diskutieren den Begriff der Verkörperung daher interdisziplinär. Sie reichen von der Neurophysiologie über die Epistemologie bis zur Kunstgeschichte und zu den Literatur- und Theaterwissenschaften.

The goal of cultural psychology is to explain the ways in which human cultural constructions -- for example, rituals, stereotypes, and meanings -- organize and direct human acting, feeling, and thinking in different social contexts. A rapidly growing, international field of scholarship, cultural psychology is ready for an interdisciplinary, primary resource. Linking psychology, anthropology, sociology, archaeology, and history, The Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology is the quintessential volume that unites the variable perspectives from these disciplines. Comprised of over fifty contributed chapters, this book provides a necessary, comprehensive overview of contemporary cultural psychology. Bridging psychological, sociological, and anthropological perspectives, one will find in this handbook: - A concise history of psychology that includes valuable resources for innovation in psychology in general and cultural psychology in particular - Interdisciplinary chapters including insights into cultural anthropology, cross-cultural psychology, culture and conceptions of the self, and semiotics and cultural connections - Close, conceptual links with contemporary biological sciences, especially developmental biology, and with other social sciences - A section detailing potential methodological innovations for cultural psychology By comparing cultures and the (often differing) human psychological functions occuring within them, The Oxford Handbook of Culture and Psychology is the ideal resource for making sense of complex and varied human phenomena.

1992 erschien Die Erlebnisgesellschaft zum ersten Mal – und machte rasch Furore. Heute kann der Text mit Fug und Recht als moderner Klassiker der Soziologie gelten. Gerhard Schulze konstatierte einen umfassenden Wandel in unserer Gesellschaft, durch den das Leben zum Erlebnisprojekt geworden ist. Die Erlebnisorientierung ist die unmittelbarste Form der Suche nach Glück. Eine Suche, die noch längst nicht abgeschlossen ist – diese neue Art zu leben müssen wir erst lernen und die Folgen noch bewältigen. Dies gilt auch heute noch: Die Sucht nach dem Kick und nach Performance ist eher gewachsen, und damit ist Gerhard Schulzes Analyse aktueller denn je.

"The contemporary world-of-work makes demands upon the field of career development and vocational psychology to ensure that theories and practices retain their relevance amidst the complexity of work and learning in people's lives. Social Constructionism is the emerging paradigm that can reformulate theories and practices of career development that have come before. Social Constructionism opens new perspectives and raises questions about phenomena that have captured the imagination of scholars and practitioners for a century. In this fourth book in the Sense Career Development Series, a host of international authors open the window of Social Constructionism to reveal the challenges that lay ahead in the next generation of research and practice. This little book is ideal for the graduate scholar, researcher, and seriously curious practitioner who seek to understand Social Constructionism, the questions it raises, and how those questions may be answered. Readers will be challenged to think hard, review their assumptions, and see the world of work and learning anew. The rewards are worth the effort."
