Elements of psychology by David Krech( Book )

164 editions published between 1947 and 2006 in 7 languages and held by 2,344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book has been prepared in response to a request from a number of teachers of psychology in the universities who suggested that the expense and length of my Handbook of Psychology precluded its use as the text in their courses of instruction. I have, accordingly, aimed to make a book which shall present the newest essentials of the science in a single compact volume at reasonable cost. It differs from my larger work mainly in its omissions. I have endeavored, however, to simplify the exposition, throughout, often rewriting whole sections or recasting whole chapters with this in view, and adding more illustrative facts and explanations. The treatment of the nervous system has been put at the beginning--a pedagogical concession to my critics, to which I ask attention as unanimous as their criticism. In regard to other alterations--respecting which the critics' opinions have largely neutralized one another--I have depended as before mainly on my own judgment. What these alterations are the book is here to show. I am sorry that the doctrine of "Feeling" his not aroused the approval in its readers that the doctrine of "Belief" has. It is stated more clearly in this book; but it is the same doctrine, and--may everybody be converted! Finally, I have added before the first chapter a short glossary of terms likely to embarrass the student at the beginning of his study; and instead of burdening the pages with references to the authorities, I have given at the outset once for all the general works (English mainly) in which detailed and exhaustive expositions may be found. A reference to the corresponding fuller treatment of my own larger work is given at the beginning of each chapter. I may add that I am grateful to all who have done my work the honor of reviewing, teaching, or reading it; especially to the reviewers. One who is conscious of his own sins feels the more the humanity of the physician who forbears to probe them too deeply"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
Theory and problems of social psychology by David Krech( Book )

69 editions published between 1946 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed for the teacher and the student who are primarily interested in the science of psychology as a systematic, interpretive account of human behavior and who are interested in applying the science of psychology to current social issues. In attempting to meet these requirements the authors have not found it necessary to keep two sets of readers in mind or to treat the subject matter of this book from two points of view. The basic guiding principle has been that a theoretically sound social psychology is also a practically valid and immediately useful social psychology.

Theoretical models and personality theory by David Krech( Book )

33 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychologists and others have always been looking for some way to avoid mere fact-gathering and have always tried to find a means of parsimoniously and fruitfully linking all sorts of data. This attempt to theorize and build models for the purpose of generating new questions about behavior and gaining new insights and understanding is not at all new, of course. But the issue of developing theories and models seems to be a particularly live one since more and more interest-areas which previously were regarded as disparate are overlapping one with another. Recent experimental studies as well as theoretical papers seem to indicate that psychiatrists, personologists, perceptionists, learning theoreticians, neurologists, and physiologists are using each other's techniques and reading each other's papers. It is within this context that "Theoretical Models and Personality Theory" discusses the rules of procedure and models which would make these contacts more economical and productive. The book begins with a general discussion of personality and personality theory. The second and third chapters discuss, respectively, theoretical models in biology and psychology and the role of neurological ideas in psychology. In the fourth chapter, the author presents the conceptual model of psychoanalysis. The author of the fifth chapter comments on theoretical models of personality, illustrated by the development of a theory of conflict behavior. Authored by H.J. Eysenck, Chapter Six examines the organization of personality. Biological intelligence is the focus of the seventh chapter, and the book closes with the presentation of a theoretical model for personality studies in Chapter Eight"--Publisher.
