Pragmatics of human communication : a study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

57 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in English and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called one of the best books ever about human communication, and a perennial bestseller, Pragmatics of Human Communication has formed the foundation of much contemporary research into interpersonal communication, in addition to laying the groundwork for context-based approaches to psychotherapy. The authors present the simple but radical idea that problems in life often arise from issues of communication, rather than from deep psychological disorders, reinforcing their conceptual explorations with case studies and well-known literary examples. Written with humor and for a variety of readers, this book identifies simple properties and axioms of human communication and demonstrates how all communications are actually a function of their contexts

Paul Watzlawicks kleiner Band Anleitung zum Unglücklichsein bricht rigoros mit der Vorstellung, Ziel des Menschen sei das Streben nach Glück.

Die dort entstandene Kommunikationstheorie wurde im Wesentlichen aus der Erforschung von Paradoxien der menschlichen Kommunikation und ihrer Störungen gewonnen

Paul Watzlawick klärt auf unkonventionelle und amüsante Weise darüber auf, was die sogenannte Wirklichkeit tatsächlich ist.

The situation is hopeless, but not serious : (the pursuit of unhappiness) by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

13 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a tongue-in-cheek look at the ways in which we turn ourselves into our own worst enemies.

Those who believe that the search for happiness eventually leads to happiness should consult the chapter "Beware of Arriving."--Publisher description

Communication dans des domaines où elle n'existait pas jusqu'à maintenant (avec les animaux, avec les extra-terrestres)

Changements : paradoxes et psychothérapie by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

21 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in French and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Comment, dans les relations humaines, les impasses apparaissent-elles? Qu'est-ce qui fait que, souvent, nos tentatives de provoquer un changement ne font que nous emmurer dans un jeu sans fin? Il y a des changements qui ne sont que source de la permanence. Dire "plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose" équivaut, si l'on prend les choses par l'autre bout, à affirmer que ça change quand on s'y attend le moins. La technique ici proposée se situe délibérément à la surface : barrer le pourquoi? - question qui porte sur les causes "profondes"--Pour mettre en avant le quoi? - interrogeant une situation ici et maintenant. Un chemin est frayé dans la forêt des paradoxes humains, qui va de Russel, Wittgenstein et Bateson à Groucho Marx. Entre la logique et l'humour, une thérapie est mise en place qui ne prétend point guérir autre chose que notre rapport présent à autrui."
