Social psychology : the study of human interaction by Theodore M Newcomb( Book )

148 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Of the writing of texts in social psychology there is no end. The author or each of them believes that he has a special justification for offering his own particular version of the common theme, and I am no exception to this general rule. Perhaps I can formulate the raison d'etre of this volume by outlining a little of its history and by expressing my indebtedness to a few of the individuals from whom its main ideas have been borrowed. These and other converging influences have led me to frame nearly every kind of social-psychological problem in terms of psychological processes which take their particular form from the interactional context in which they occur. And I have come to see group memberships as providing the sine qua non for specifying the interactional context of human social behavior. Groups provide their members with shared frames of reference--particularly in the form of positions and roles, in terms of which they perceive themselves as well as one another. So little social behavior is immune to such shared influences, and so much of it is very largely determined by them, that I have come to accord them a central place in my own thinking. I hope that, in so doing, I have not fallen into the fallacy of assuming that social behavior springs merely from the interiorizing of social norms. This would be quite as disastrous as to ignore social norms altogether. At any rate, this point of view has led me to view social behavior as occurring on the part of biological organisms which are also group members. To understand it we must study both individual life and group life, in terms of a single body of coherent concepts and principles. I have therefore tried to sketch an outline of the psychology of group membership in a way which is neither merely psychological nor merely sociological but which, I hope, may contribute to the growth of a body of concepts and principles of truly social-psychological nature"--Preface.

For a science of social man : convergences in anthropology, psychology, and sociology by Howard Paul Becker( Book )

2 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors of this book, in common with many other specialists and scientific organizations, have faith in the application of science to human affairs, and they do not feel that either the alleged impossibility of a science of human social behavior or the supposedly inevitable delay in its development is to be taken for granted without a close inspection of the situation and a careful consideration of alternatives and possibilities. We believe that a better communication of extant theory and knowledge across disciplinary lines will not only pave the way for a more comprehensive approach to human problems, but will also stimulate the scope and predictive power of behavior science, including all the specialties involved. Yet we have felt that something more constructive is needed than merely a collective blast of exhortation. There is little to be gained by adding our voices to the lamentations and scoldings of those who angrily demand that social science immediately "catch up" with nuclear physics. If the sciences that are supposed to illuminate the behavior of man, his societies, and his cultures are to be collectively rather than separately helpful to mankind in its uneasy state, we must first of all, it would seem, understand what these disciplines have in common. As a modest step in this direction we have thought it most convenient to begin with an examination of certain of the mutual problems of those three "human science disciplines" that have come to be considered the "core" sciences of human behavior in society--namely, anthropology, psychology, and sociology"--Book.

The impact of college on students by Kenneth A Feldman( Book )

18 editions published between 1969 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this landmark work, Kenneth Feldman and Theodore Newcomb review and synthesize the findings of more than 1,500 studies conducted over four decades on the subject. Writing in 1991, Ernest Pascarella and Patrick Terenzini maintained that The Impact of College on Students not only provided the first comprehensive conceptual map of generally uncharted terrain, but also generated a number of major hypotheses about how college influences students. They also noted that Feldman and Newcomb helped to stimulate a torrent of studies on the characteristics of collegiate institutions and how students change and benefit during and after their college years from college attendance. The Impact of College on Students is now a standard text in graduate courses as well as a standard and frequently cited reference for scholars, students, and administrators of higher education. Much of what we understand about the developmental influence of college is based on this work." "In a new introduction, Feldman outlines the background for the production of the book, points out the kinds of research that have been done since it was written, and elaborates on the "accentuation effect" posited in it. He also offers a sensitive statement on the different potentials of research designs and analyses derived from sociology and psychology."--Jacket

Deviant subcultures on a college campus by Theodore M Newcomb( Book )

8 editions published between 1963 and 1964 in English and Undetermined and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines some of the determinants and effects of certain aspects of the informal social structure found on the campus of bennington college, vermont. The study was designed as a replication, as nearly as possible under changed circumstances, of a study carried out at the same college during the 1930'S. the earlier study demonstrated the impact of community participation on certain attitudes of students. The later one attempts to determine similarities and differences between current norms among bennington students and those found nearly 25 years earlier, as well as to compare certain effects of each set of norms. Findings tended to show that collegiate deviants (1) tended to have friends whose attitudes were similar to their own, (2) changed their attitudes with respect to bennington's norms significantly less than noncollegiate deviants, and (3) were significantly more likely than noncollegiate deviants to be seen as deviant by other students.
