Resolving social conflicts ; &, Field theory in social science by Kurt Lewin( Book )

20 editions published between 1948 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kurt Lewin is best known as the foremost proponent of "field theory" - the notion that individuals, and the groups that surround them, are not independent elements but interdependent. The social group, Lewin believed, is the primary shaper of a person's thoughts, feelings and behaviour. The concept is now so commonly held that it's hard to imagine that it was ever considered "groundbreaking". Yet it doesn't begin to cover the range of pioneering work that Lewin contributed to social and personality psychology. Through his prolific research and writing, he brought innovative concepts to both the methods and the language of social psychology. Throughout his life, Lewin struggled to adhere to his self-imposed vision of the researcher who maintains a "constant intense tension" between theory and reality. His favourite metaphor was that of a bridge, connecting research with action, laboratory with community. This reprinted volume seeks to reacquaint students and historians of psychology with Lewin's enduring contributions to social psychology. Translated from the German, it provides a foray into Lewin's work and into his idiosyncratic vision
The conceptual representation and the measurement of psychological forces by Kurt Lewin( Book )

33 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We have attempted to describe the position of the concept force in psychology and to discuss major methods of measuring psychological forces. One of our objectives is to bring into the open and to apply scientific standards to those concepts which actually underlie certain recognized research methods and to eliminate those unnecessary accessories which create ranch discussion but little progress"--Book.

Frustration and regression : an experiment with young children by Roger G Barker( Book )

22 editions published between 1941 and 1977 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scientific readers unfamiliar with Lewinian concepts might do well to preface their approach to these experimental studies with the reading of Part I, "Formalization and Progress in Psychology" of Studies in Topological and Vector Psychology I (University of Iowa Studies in Child Welfare, 1940, Vol. 16, No. 3). Another approach would be to begin directly with Chapter II of this study, "Experimental Regression Through Frustration," reserving for later reading the theoretical sections of Studies I and II. The present researches are important in demonstrating the generalized character of the phenomenon of regression: frustration leads to primitive behavior even in areas not connected to inaccessible goals. Behavior is modified in a central fashion. This book experiments with children and their frustration and regression." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
