Psychology : the hope of a science by Gregory A Kimble( )

18 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 2,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time in the history of psychology when many psychologists are troubled by the splintered condition of the field, Gregory Kimble proposes that the diverse perspectives in psychology share ways of thinking that can bring coherence to the discipline. Drawing on years of extensive research and scholarship, Kimble presents evidence for this potential unity. He portrays psychology as a natural science with relevance to human life and offers a set of axioms that hold the field together. Psychology is a two-part exploration of the concept of psychology as the science of behavior. The first part describes the traditional commitments of the scientific method and spells out the implications of those commitments for psychology. The second part develops a general theory within a framework that can be called functional behaviorism, which combines the imperative that a science of psychology must be about observable realities with the view that human behavior is the result of evolution. Kimble's proposals are of general significance and have stood the test of time: they were reasonably explicit in the writings of the giants in the history of psychology, and they apply in contexts that range from behavioral neurology to social action
Hilgard and Marquis' Conditioning and Learning by Ernest R Hilgard( Book )

42 editions published between 1961 and 1975 in 4 languages and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theories of learning which make use of conditioning principles are not related in a simple manner to the facts from conditioning experiments. This book represents an effort to place the facts and theories into some sort of order through critical exposition. The net result is not a finished theory; in many instances we have found it necessary to point to several alternative conceptions. The examination of the relation of conditioning to other basic learning experiments has at other points revealed serious gaps in our knowledge which future experimentation must fill. Although conditioning has sometimes been proposed as a basic concept for the fields of cerebral physiology, of mental hygiene and personality, and of the higher thought processes, we have found it desirable to place greatest emphasis upon the relation of conditioning to learning theory. In the later chapters we have surveyed the possibilities of applying conditioning concepts within some of the other fields"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)
Portraits of pioneers in psychology by Gregory A Kimble( )

8 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A major aim of the books in this series is to promote psychology's appreciation of the neglected giants in its history. The chapters document the significance of these early contributions, many of them made more than a century ago. Most of the chapters are revisions of invited addresses delivered at psychological conventions. Several of the authors are students, colleagues, or offspring of their pioneers and all of them are intrigued by the life and work of the psychologists about whom they have written. All of the portraits are informal; on occasion, even humorous. Some are "impersonations."

Topics in the history of psychology by Gregory A Kimble( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volumes of this work consist of nineteen chapters. Seventeen were written by psychologists expert in a particular branch of our field.

The first chapter in each of the volumes are the editors' attempts to remedy this deficiency. The first volume covers the areas of conditioning and learning, human learning and memory, sensory and perceptual processes, comparative psychology, and physiological psychology. Volume 2 covers the history of behavioral genetics, psychological testing, developmental psychology, drives and motives, sleep and dreaming, psychotherapy, psychopathology, personality theory, and social psychology
Psychology and learning by Barbara L Hammonds( Book )

11 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Master Series, a continuing education program of 5 distinguished lectures, has been presented annually at the American Psychological Association convention since 1974. The lecture provides updates on the relevant issues, methodologies, and advances in research in a different area of specialization each year. This volume, "Psychology and Learning," is the 4th in a series of bound volumes derived from the Master Lecture presentations. Five lectures on the theme of psychology and learning were presented at the 1984 APA Convention by leading scholars in the study of animal and human learning. The lectures in this volume are by Gregory A. Kimble, Leonard Krasner, Jack L. Michael, Lauren B. Resnick, and John Garcia. The volume should appeal to scholars and professional practitioners, to students who are just beginning their training in the field, and to nonpsychologists who wish to stay informed about current issues in the psychology of learning.
