The psychology of gender by Alice Hendrickson Eagly( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 1,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The psychology of gender and gender differences is a vast subject with significant social implications. It has prompted many questions with few concrete answers: To what extent does gender influence one's behaviors, thoughts, and feelings? How does gender affect how we are perceived by others? Which gender differences are most meaningful? How do heredity and environment interact to create gender differences? Although there are myriad perspectives on such questions, most available books on the topic focus on a particular viewpoint, omitting discussion of related ideas. This enlightening volume investigates the psychology of gender from a variety of theoretical perspectives ranging from the evolutionary to the social constructionist account. Providing comprehensive coverage of different gender theories, and compiling these theories in an intelligent and relevant framework for examination, The Psychology of Gender offers the broadest available exploration of the timely and provocative questions involved in gender studies. The Psychology of Gender, in its attempt to understand all of the issues surrounding gender and gender issues, does not give preference to one specific viewpoint or approach. Instead, the chapter authors vary both in how they view gender and in how they support their view: Some address broad sweeping theories, while others focus on a specific issue. The book is divided into three major sections. Chapters in the first section address how gender affects our thoughts and behavior. The second section explores broad theories of why the two genders appear to be different. Finally, the third section illustrates how gender operates in biological and cultural ways. The concluding section is an integration of all the perspectives discussed in the book. Each of these sections is steeped in both theory and data, with chapters written by distinguished authorities. Together, their contributions provide a uniquely comprehensive, interdisciplinary view of the many controversial issues that surround the topic. Providing a valuable framework for the study of gender, this book illuminates the social and scholarly debates that have profound implications for the way men and women perceive themselves, and how these perceptions affect their relationships at work, with their children, and with each other. It will interest clinicians and researchers, academics, and informed general readers alike. Clearly written and well integrated, it serves as a text for courses in the psychology of gender and as supplementary reading for introductory courses in psychology, social psychology, and sociology

Love is a story : a new theory of relationships by Robert J Sternberg( Book )

24 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What draws us so strongly to some people and repels us from others? What makes some relationships work so smoothly and others burst into flames? Sternberg gives us new answers to these questions by showing that the kind of relationship we create depends on the kind of love stories we carry inside us. Drawing on extensive research and fascinating examples of real couples, Sternberg identifies 26 types of love story--including the fantasy story, the business story, the collector story, the horror story, and many others--each with its distinctive advantages and pitfalls, and many of which are clashingly incompatible. These are the largely unconscious preconceptions that guide our romantic choices, and it is only by becoming aware of the kind of story we have about love that we gain the freedom to create more fulfilling and lasting relationships. As long as we remain oblivious to the role our stories play, we are likely to repeat the same mistakes again and again. But the enlivening good news this book brings us is that though our stories drive us, we can revise them and learn to choose partners whose stories are more compatible with our own. -- Publisher description

Wisdom, intelligence, and creativity synthesized by Robert J Sternberg( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For thirty years, Robert J. Sternberg has been among the most vocal critics of narrow conceptions of intelligence. In his most recent book, Wisdom, Intelligence, and Creativity Synthesized, Professor Sternberg critically reviews and summarizes the best research available on human intelligence. He argues that any serious understanding of intelligence must go beyond that standard paper and pencil tests currently in use. In addition to analytical and quantitative abilities, a theory of intelligence must take account of people's creative abilities - their ability to go beyond given information and imagine new and exciting ways of reformulating old problems. It must also take into account wisdom - people's ability to weigh options carefully and act prudently. Understanding one's own intellectual shortcomings and learning how to overcome them, Professor Sternberg argues, is just as important as developing one's strengths. As he weaves his way through decades of important research, including recent international studies on these questions, Professor Sternberg develops a vision of human intelligence that is far more nuanced and accurate than anything previously offered. Wisdom, Intelligence, and Creativity Synthesized will be essential reading for psychologists, cognitive scientists, educators, and organizational researchers."--Jacket

The psychology of abilities, competencies, and expertise( Book )

14 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this book is to characterize the nature of abilities, competencies, and expertise, and to understand the relations among them. The book therefore seeks to integrate into a coherent discipline what formerly have been, to a large extent, three separate disciplines. Such integration makes both theoretical and practical sense, because abilities represent potentials to achieve competencies, and ultimately, expertise. Authors of each chapter (a) present their views on the nature of abilities, competencies, and expertise; (b) present their views on the interrelationships among these three constructs; (c) state their views on how these three constructs can be assessed and developed; (d) present empirical data supporting their position; (e) compare and contrast their position to alternative positions, showing why they believe their position to be preferred; and (f) speculate on the implications of their viewpoint for science, education, and society
