You've got to be kidding! : how jokes can help you think by John M Capps( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an analysis of the ways in which jokes illustrate how we think critically, and how the thinking process goes awry in everyday human situations. It uses jokes to illustrate the various mistakes or fallacies that are typically identified and discussed in courses on critical reasoning, as well as providing an effective way to learn critical thinking skills since jokes often describe real-life situations where it really matters whether a person thinks well or not. It also demonstrates how philosophy is actually very practical
Men, religion, and melancholia : James, Otto, Jung, and Erikson by Donald Capps( Book )

11 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is not by coincidence that the key figures in the psychology of religion - William James, Rudolf Otto, Carl Jung, and Erik Erikson - each fought a lifelong battle with melancholia, argues Donald Capps in this engrossing book. These four men experienced similar traumas in early childhood: each perceived a loss of mother's unconditional love. In the deep melancholy that resulted, they turned to religion. Capps contends that the main impetus for men to become religious lies in such melancholia, and that these four authors were typical, although their losses were especially severe because of complicating personal circumstances. Offering a new way of viewing the major classics in the psychology of religion, Capps explores the psychological origins of these authors' own religious visions through a sensitive examination of their writings

James and Dewey on belief and experience by William James( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Donald Capps and John Capps's James and Dewey on Belief and Experience juxtaposes the key writings of two philosophical superstars. As fathers of Pragmatism, America's unique contribution to world philosophy, their work has been enormously influential, and remains essential to any understanding of American intellectual history. In these essays, you'll find William James deeply embroiled in debates between religion and science. Combining philosophical charity with logical clarity, he defended the validity of religious experience against crass forms of scientism. Dewey identified the myriad ways in which supernatural concerns distract religious adherents from pressing social concerns, and sought to reconcile the tensions inherent in science's dual embrace of common sense and the aesthetic. James and Dewey on Belief and Experience is divided into two sections: the former showcases James, the latter is devoted to Dewey. Two transitional passages in which each reflects on the work of the other bridge these two main segments. Together, the sections offer a unique perspective on the philosophers' complex relationship of influence and interdependence. An editors' introduction provides biographical information about both men, an overview of their respective philosophical orientations, a discussion of the editorial process, and a brief commentary on each of the selections. Comparing what these foremost pragmatists wrote on both themes illumines their common convictions regarding the nature of philosophical inquiry and simultaneously reveals what made each a distinctive thinker."--Page 4 of cover
Giving counsel : a minister's guidebook by Donald Capps( Book )

For most ministers, pastoral counseling is a part of daily ministry, whether it is in an office counseling session or in a chance meeting with a parishioner outside the church. Whatever the setting, ministers are often called on to provide counsel and, by virtue of their calling and training, are expected to do so. This how-to guide for seminary students and ministers explores the role of the minister as counselor and provides a method for giving counsel. Renowned pastoral care expert Donald Capps equips readers with basic knowledge and skills and helps them to create a framework to ensure that all conversations where counsel is given will be valuable and not harmful to the person involved. Using a problem-resolving approach, Capps leads readers through: -- How to Create a Listening Environment -- How to Construct a Conversation -- How to Think Systemically -- How to Interpret Stories -- How to Manage Boundaries Giving Counsel is the perfect resource for seminary students and ministers of all faiths, whether you are beginning your study or looking for a single resource to serve your ministry

Still growing : the creative self in older adulthood by Donald Capps( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The later-adult years are commonly viewed as a period in which one struggles to maintain a vestige of the physical, mental, and emotional vitality of one's earlier years. In Still Growing, however, Donald Capps contends that older adulthood is actually a period of growth and development, and that a central feature of this growth and development is the remarkable creativity of older adults. This creativity is the consequence of the wisdom gained through years of experience but is also due to a newly developed capacity to adapt to unprecedented challenges integral to the aging process. Part I illustrates the challenges of transitioning to older adulthood from the author's own experience. Part II draws on material from Erik H. Erikson, Sigmund Freud, and Paul W. Pruyser to account for longevity, adaptability, and creativity in older adults. Finally, Part III focuses on the work of both William James and Walt Disney to fashion a model of creative aging
