Perceptual changes in psychopathology by William H Ittelson( Book )

"In February, 1953, a research proposal entitled <xh:i>Perceptual Changes in Psychopathology</xh:i> was approved by the Veterans Administration, and under the terms of this proposal a continuing research program was established in the Fall of that year at the East Orange Veterans Administration Hospital. This book represents a progress report on this project. It investigates experimentally the perceptual distortions which are encountered in certain types of psychopathology and the perceptual changes which occur in the course of psychotherapy, with the aim of adding immediately to the empirical knowledge of this area and ultimately leading to a comprehensive theory of perceptual change, particularly as related to psychopathology. Two ways of studying perceptual change have been carried out concurrently. These are represented in the two sections into which the book has been divided. First, we have attempted to work out a theory of perceptual change as it relates to over-all personality functioning and to develop a suitable experimental methodology by which such a theory can be tested in the laboratory and related to clinical practice. Second, a number of different specific aspects of perceptual change have been investigated. Numerous variables, processes, and determinants have been selected; the individual reports represent an interest both in devising suitable methodology and in arriving at substantive findings"--Preface.

Perception, a transactional approach by William H Ittelson( Book )

24 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two-in-one; a new scientific philosophy and its implementation with the examination of an important psychological process: the transactional approach and human perceiving. Here is a combination that must concern all. Just as perceiving never occurs independent of some other activity, so too, practically no waking activity can be undertaken without perceiving. A scientific philosophy can itself be regarded as the resultant of human perception, just as the analysis of perception, whether from this or another approach, represents an expression of the observer's philosophy. If this is confusing it is because we do not, you and I, have a common philosophy or because we have different theories of human perception. The philosophical orientation of Professors Ittelson and Cantril, the authors of this paper, is transactional. Transactions differ from interactions. A situation may be appropriately considered a transaction when it is functionally inappropriate to examine the characteristics of any significant component except for the way in which it is involved in the particular situation. In a simple straightforward exposition, the authors outline the transactional approach to perception. By design, they avoid polemic in favor of the continuous statement of their basic position. Here is no controversy, but probably a very controversial statement--for the viewpoint has only recently been developed and is by no means universally accepted. Though most of the points made can be buttressed by experiments and observations drawn from "common" experience, the authors have preferred the clarity of a briefer statement which makes it easier to identify the major aspects of their analysis to a longer essay which would include the supporting evidence. An appended reading list will help those who wish to seek further in this approach. The authors review in order the nature of perception, how it is studied, its development, and perception in operation. The implications of this outline for the development of scientific psychology and for a reappraisal of personal perspectives are imponderable"--Preface.

Environmental assessment of socioeconomic systems by Dietrich Burkhardt( Book )

10 editions published between 1977 and 1978 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Neglect of the relation between the socio-economic system and its natural environment has had detrimental consequences in the past, for example - the pollution of the natural environment (water, air and soil) by producing, using and consuming the products of our industrialized economy, - the forseeable exhaustion of natural resources by continuing the increase of industrial production. Most of the recent activities, both in research and in adminis tration, against these impacts have been technically oriented, with the aim of stimulating and introducing new technologies of produc tion and new products to diminish the environmental pollution. But these efforts, which are of course necessary, cannot be successful in approaching the aim - which should and must in the long-term view be defined as the development of society in balance with the natural environment. Therefore, in addition to an assess ment of technologies, emphasis should be put on an assessment of socio-economic systems. On di~~erent levels, individual and social preferences determine quantities and qualities of production and consumption using economical values, e.g., market prices as regula tors. Following this argumentation, an environment assessment of activities against pollution has especially to consider the social response to environmental impacts. Of course, this topic must be a subject of interdisciplinary research. The challenge concerned in this context is to increase the knowledge of the relationship between social, economic and tech nical subsets
