Pavlov's dogs and Schrödinger's cat : scenes from the living laboratory by Rom Harré( )

23 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 2,304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the sheep, dog, and cockerel that were sent aloft in Montgolfier's balloon to test the air over Paris, to the famous clone Dolly the Sheep and the Darwinian finches of the Galapagos, Pavlov's Dogs and Schrodinger's Cat offers a look at the use of plants and animals--including humans--in scientific experiments. Rom Harre provides a fresh perspective on research, setting aside moral reflection to simply examine the history of how and why living creatures have been used for the purposes of discovery. From Gregor Mendel's use of pea plants to explore heredity, to Barry Marshall's used of himself as the experimental animal in his helicobacter experiments (he survived) and even the use of an imaginary cat in Schrodinger's famous thought experiment, the reader encounters a new perspective on scientific work

The discursive mind by Rom Harrâe( )

20 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Discursive Mind presents an exhilarating tour of the key philosophical revolutions that are shaping contemporary psychology. Harre and Gillett herald a new paradigm in psychology, dissolving the Cartesian distinction between mind and body in favor of the discursive turn in psychological theory. This grand, interdisciplinary overview places its emphasis on discourse: the discursive origins of the self, the problem of agency and a thoroughly social understanding of personality. In the process, the authors elevate the emotions to a far more significant place in our understanding of mind, action, and being." "The Discursive Mind is an elegant and lucidly argued book, whose theoretical breadth is matched by its treatment of a remarkable range of subjects including: consciousness, the brain, perception, thought, personality, and the emotions. Scholars, professionals, and students in psychology, communication, and sociology will find this volume provocative, insightful, delightful to read, and intellectually challenging."--Jacket

The emotions : social, cultural and biological dimensions by Rom Harré( )

23 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A theoretical synthesis by leading scholars in the field, The Emotions overviews the psychology of emotion in the broadest sense by tracing historical, social, cultural, and biological themes. The contributors explore the discursive nature of emotions, variations in and diversity of emotions across cultures, and the influence of emotions on culturally maintained patterns of emotion in their analyses. A selection of intriguing chapters reveals how emotions emerge in different societies, across gender lines, in different historical periods, and between children and adults, while others delve into the internal patterns of emotions within individuals that shape the expression of judgments about, attitudes toward, and regret for one's own actions or the actions of others. In addition, special vignettes peppered throughout the volume add engaging perspectives of the theories in action. Interdisciplinary and hitting on a topic of increasing interest to researchers, The Emotions presents a broad-ranging collection of inquiry vital to both students and scholars in social psychology, developmental psychology, cross-cultural psychology, and cognitive anthropology

25 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Chinese and held by 1,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique textbook on the history of psychology eloquently introduces the classic scholars, studies, and the subsequent generations of people and ideas that have come to define the broad discipline that is psychology. By combining the personal history of key thinkers with their significant contribution to the discipline, including cross-referencing to other 'thinkers' throughout, the author has presented a lively and engaging work that will support undergraduate teaching and learning in a refreshing manner. It will also bring to life a subject that is very popular throughout the western world by showing how psychologists have developed their ideas, influenced their peers or their followers."--Page 4 of cover

Modeling : gateway to the unknown : a work by Rom Harré( )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edited by Daniel Rothbart of George Mason University in Virginia, this book is a collection of Rom Harř's work on modeling in science (particularly physics and psychology). In over 28 authored books and 240 articles and book chapters, Rom Harř of Georgetown University in Washington, DC is a towering figure in philosophy, linguistics, and social psychology. He has inspired a generation of scholars, both for the ways in which his research is carried out and his profound insights. For Harř, the stunning discoveries of research demand a kind of thinking that is found in the construction and control of models. Iconic modeling is pivotal for representing real-world structures, explaining phenomena, manipulating instruments, constructing theories, and acquiring data. This volume in the new Elsevier book series Studies in Multidisciplinarity includes major topics on the structure and function of models, the debates over scientific realism, explanation through analogical modeling, a metaphysics for physics, the rationale for experimentation, and modeling in social encounters. * A multidisciplinary work of sweeping scope about the nature of science * Revolutionary interpretation that challenges conventional wisdom about the character of scientific thinking * Profound insights about fundamental challenges to contemporary physics * Brilliant discoveries into the nature of social interaction and human identity * Presents a rational conception of methods for acquiring knowledge of remote regions of the world * Written by one of the great thinkers of our time

The self and others : positioning individuals and groups in personal, political, and cultural contexts by Rom Harré( )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume focuses on relations between the self and other individuals, the self and groups, and the self and context. Leading scholars in the field of positioning theory present the newest developments from this field on human social relations. The discussion is international, multidisciplinary, and multi-method, aiming to achieve a more dynamic and powerful account of human social relations, and to break disciplinary boundaries. Four features in this work are prominent. The book is culturally oriented and international. There is a push to move across disciplines, particularly across psychology and linguistics, and psychology and microsociology. There is a focus on language and social construction of the world through discourse. Finally, the book represents a multi-method approach that reflects discursive methods."--Publisher's website
Psychology of music : from sound to significance by Siu-Lan Tan( )

29 editions published between 2010 and 2018 in English and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tan, Pfordresher and Harré provide a nice, engaging and up-to-date overview of the psychology of music, from acoustics to ethnomusicology. The authors accompany the reader through the meanders of this complex field which spans several disciplines. The book, written in a plain and introductory style, is the ideal guide for students, and a refreshing overview for specialists and non-specialists interested in the psychology of music.' Simone Dalla Bella, Department of Psychology, WSFiZ, Warsaw, Poland and BRAMS, Montreal, Canada." "Why are some disturbances of air molecules heard as 'noise' while others are perceived as music? What happens at the level of the sound wave, the ear, and the brain when we perform or listen to music? How do musical abilities emerge and develop, and become refined as one acquires musical expertise? And what gives music its deep emotional significance and its power to influence social behavior, across vastly different cultural contexts?" "This book provides an introduction to classic and current studies in the psychology of music, combining a comprehensive summary with critical assessments of existing research. The volume captures the interdisciplinary breadth of the field, while covering central topics in depth." "Part I explores sound and music at an acoustic level, explaining auditory events with respect to the workings of the ear and brain. Part II focuses on perception and cognition of melody, rhythm, and formal structure. Part III examines the emergence and development of musical skills, and turns to the most practical aspects of psychology of music: music practice and performance. Finally, Part IV broadens the discussion to the question of meaning in music, with respect to its social, emotional, philosophical, and cultural significance. Throughout, both behavioral and neuroscientific perspectives are developed." "This book will be invaluable to undergraduate and postgraduate students in the fields of psychology and music, and will appeal to anyone else who is interested in the psychology of music"--Jacket
The explanation of social behaviour by Rom Harré( Book )

50 editions published between 1972 and 1979 in English and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resistance and the practice of rationality by Martin W Bauer( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resistance used to mean irrational and reactionary behaviour, assuming that rationality resides on the side of progress and its parties. The end of the Cold War allows us to drop ideological and prejudicial analysis. Indeed, we recognise that resistance is a historical constant, and its relation to rationality or irrationality is not predetermined. This volume asks: to what extent are social scientific conceptions of 'resistances' sui generis, or borrowed from natural sciences by metaphor and analogy? To what extent do the social sciences continue to be a 'social tribology' lubricating a process of strategic changes? Fifteen authors explore these questions from the point of view of different disciplines including physics, biology, social psychology, history of science, history of medicine, legal theory, political science, history, police studies, psychotherapy research and art theory. The book offers a unique panorama of concepts of 'resistance' and examines the potential of a general 'resistology' across diverse practices of rationality
