Psychology, theoretical-historical perspectives by R. W Rieber( Book )

31 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The approach to theory and history adapted by the contributors is to focus on some of the central figures in the development of discipline. Within this approach, the authors offer analyses of 3 major theoretical currents in psychology: psychoanalysis, behaviorism, and the Geneva school. Other chapters focus on psychophysics and on Gestalt, cognitive, and evolutionary psychology. The text covers such influences as G.T. Fechner, G.E. Muller, W. Wundt, F. Galton, James, Darwin, J.M. Baldwin, and Vygotsky and such topics as the Americanization of psychology and psychoanalysis, the relationship between politics and psychology in the US, and the contrasting development of the concept of the self in Western and Eastern psychology, and reprints chapters originally contributed by B.F. Skinner and Jean Piaget. It provides the reader with a broad overview of the development of a continually evolving field, one that has had an influence on the thought and culture of the 20th century.

Manufacturing social distress : psychopathy in everyday life by R. W Rieber( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bold new book proposes a completely new discipline - "the psychology of malefaction," a frank study of the role of evil in human hehavior that does not explain an act of murder, for example, as simply a symptom of the murderer's psychosis. Having been long successful in explaining psychopathic behavior, the author maintains, psychology has in a sense tended to excuse the destructive acts of the psychopath, or at least has appeared to do so. Rieber reexamines the various phenomena of family violence, violence in films and television, modern war, and serial killers regarding them as wicked, not merely insane. This provocative book rethinks the nagging problem of evil as it manifests itself in our society, rigorously questioning to what degree persons must be responsible for - and held accountable for - their actions

The Psychology of war and peace : the image of the enemy by R. W Rieber( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can a Baby Be an Enemy? Our world is in a deep, prolonged crisis. The threat of global nuclear war, the chronic condition of local wars, the imperilled environment, and mass star- vation are among the major forms this crisis takes. The dangers of massive overkill, overexploitation of the environment, and overpopulation are well known, but surprisingly little has been said about their potential interac- tions, their bearing upon each other. If there were to be a nuclear confronta- tion between today's superpowers, it might not take place in today's world, but in a far less friendly habitat, such as the world may be some decades hence. And it need hardly be added that the era of this particular super- power configuration may be waning rapidly, its place to be taken by other international arrangements not necessarily less threatening. To understand and cope with our situation we need correspondingly serious reflection. This volume forms a welcome part of that process. Un- avoidably, a large part of our thinking about the issues of human survival must be oriented to physical and biological aspects of the total danger. But it has not escaped the authors of this book that, coupled with these aspects, there are profound psychological dangers, such as loss of the sense of futu- rity, moral deterioration, and a fatalistic decline in the will to struggle to protect our home, the Earth. --Taken from the Foreword
The bifurcation of the self : the history and theory of dissociation and its disorders by R. W Rieber( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For more than a hundred years, dissociative states, sometimes referred to as multiple personality disorder, have fascinated the public as well as scientists. The precise nature of this disorder is a controversial one, dividing clinicians, theorists, and researchers. Challenging the conventional wisdom on all sides, Robert Rieber s Bifurcation of the Self traces the clinical and social history of dissociation in a provocative examination of this widely debated phenomenon. At the core of this history is a trio of related evolutions hypnosis, concepts of identity, and dissociation beginning with nineteenth-century ""hysterics"" and culminating in the modern boom in Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) diagnoses and the parallel rise in childhood abuse/repressed memory cases. Rieber does not argue the non-existence of DID, rather he asserts that it is a rare disorder exaggerated by dissociation advocates and exploited by the media. In doing so, he takes on some of the most difficult questions in the field:- How crucial is memory to a person s identity?- Can two or more autonomous personalities actually exist in the same body?- If trauma causes dissociation, why aren t there more DID cases?- Why are DID cases prevalent in some eras but not in others?- Does dissociative disorder belong in the DSM?The book is rigorously illustrated with two centuries worth of famous cases including Christine Beauchamp, Ansel Bourne, Eve Black/Eve White, and most notably the woman known as ""Sybil"", whose story is covered in depth with newly revealed manuscripts. And Rieber reviews the current state of DID-related controversy, from the professionals who feel that the condition is underreported to those who consider it a form of malingering, so that readers may draw their own conclusions."
The Collected works of L.S. Vygotsky by L. S Vygotskiĭ( Book )

17 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, readers are introduced to Vygotsky's argument for a theoretical and methodological approach to differentiate A "higher" mental functions from the more basic brain processes that other theorists believed were at the center of the psychological apparatus. The famed Soviet psychologist's view of developmental issues as an intricately woven tapestry of functions includes analyses of: - the development of speech and written language - the mastering of attention and mnemonic skills - self-control and the higher, more cultivated forms of behavior - the cultural age, personality, and world view of children

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freud on interpretation : the ancient magical Egyptian and Jewish traditions by R. W Rieber( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its early days, some saw psychology as a substitute for religion. Others regarded it as a new religion in its own right. What was less obvious to most observers--and far less obvious today--were the roots of Freud's work in the ancient mystical teachings of the Middle East. A unique analysis, Freud on Interpretation examines the inner workings of his thought process and the rich mine of knowledge that led him toward his theories and therapies. In the beliefs of ancient Egypt, with its sexually ambiguous dieties, and ancient Israel, with its Biblical accounts of madness and feigned madness, are found surprising sources of inspiration for such core Freudian concepts as free association, dream interpretation, the psychosexual stages, the libido, and the unconscious. Psychoanalyis here is seen in its early growth stages, fed and nurtured by philosophers, scientists, and fearless mind explorers; and Freud is boldly synthesizing modes of knowledge from an age when science and superstition were rarely separate. This compelling volume: Overviews the pre-Freudian history of psychology in the writings of Herbart, Morel, and Krafft-Ebing; Probes Freud's interest in ancient Egyptian creation myths and the Kabbala, and their influence on his work; Explores the paradoxes inherent in the interpretation of the mind; Offers unique insights into the origins of the Rorschach test; Considers the real meaning behind Freud's self-identification as a determinist; Includes a listing of Freud's library of titles on ancient Egypt; Freud on Interpretation is stimulating reading for clinical psychologists and those interested in the intellectual and professional development of the master psychiatrist."--Publisher's website
Film, television and the psychology of the social dream by R. W Rieber( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the flickering images of the earliest silent films to today's billion-dollar blockbusters, films have captivated the public's eyes, hearts, and psyches. Reflecting - and often creating - the tenor of their times, they combine layers of symbolic and metaphorical images to make a stronger internal impact on their viewers than the still image or the printed word. The compelling pages of Film, Television and the Psychology of the Social Dream illuminate the profound emotional processes involved as films inform and transform our unconscious and conscious minds. Drawing on original and classic scholarship in its field, this provocative volume analyzes these interactions through a wide array of influential films, including pioneering German expressionist works, the Star Trek cycle, and The Godfather. Movies' transformative role in molding philosophies and ethics is shown as the larger meanings of public heroes, stars, fears, and desires evolve, and as salient genres embody more than simply a good story. But despite this century of evolution, the authors assert, one thing remains constant: the critical place of film in communicating individual dreams as well as the shared dreams of a society"--Back cover
