"Of the writing of texts in social psychology there is no end. The author or each of them believes that he has a special justification for offering his own particular version of the common theme, and I am no exception to this general rule. Perhaps I can formulate the raison d'etre of this volume by outlining a little of its history and by expressing my indebtedness to a few of the individuals from whom its main ideas have been borrowed. These and other converging influences have led me to frame nearly every kind of social-psychological problem in terms of psychological processes which take their particular form from the interactional context in which they occur. And I have come to see group memberships as providing the sine qua non for specifying the interactional context of human social behavior. Groups provide their members with shared frames of reference--particularly in the form of positions and roles, in terms of which they perceive themselves as well as one another. So little social behavior is immune to such shared influences, and so much of it is very largely determined by them, that I have come to accord them a central place in my own thinking. I hope that, in so doing, I have not fallen into the fallacy of assuming that social behavior springs merely from the interiorizing of social norms. This would be quite as disastrous as to ignore social norms altogether. At any rate, this point of view has led me to view social behavior as occurring on the part of biological organisms which are also group members. To understand it we must study both individual life and group life, in terms of a single body of coherent concepts and principles. I have therefore tried to sketch an outline of the psychology of group membership in a way which is neither merely psychological nor merely sociological but which, I hope, may contribute to the growth of a body of concepts and principles of truly social-psychological nature"--Preface.

The unread mind : unraveling the mystery of madness by Morris Rosenberg( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, we have been intrigued and baffled by mental illness. Our confusion is nowhere more apparent than in the ways we have dealt with the mentally ill. We have tortured, exiled and burned them at the stake. Yet at other times we have supported, cared for and nurtured them. It is apparent that society has never quite known how to respond to the insane--whether to punish them for their acts or to pity them for their sickness. In an original look at the nature of mental illness and the distinction between sanity and insanity, Morris Rosenberg rejects most psychiatric, psychological and sociological theories. Instead, he defines insanity as "role-taking failure", the inability to grasp the thoughts and emotions of other human beings. According to Rosenberg, we characterize a person's ideas and behaviors as insane when we are unable to put ourselves in his place or to see the world through his eyes. If we can comprehend the reasons for a person's speech or action, we think of it as sane; if not, we consider it insane. He contends that it is society's confusion about the mentally ill, its inability to penetrate the unread mind, that actually defines mental illness. His radical thesis, that mental illness is characterized by society's response, not the individual's action, gives us a new way to look at a subject that has puzzled society for centuries

Beyond Self-Esteem: Some Neglected Aspects of the Self-Concept by Morris Rosenberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to call attention to certain important aspects of self-concept which have been largely neglected in behavioral science research literature. Self-concept is defined as the totality of the individual's thoughts and feelings with reference to himself as an object. Three broad areas of self-concept are discussed. The first area, the extant self-concept, includes the content of the self, the relationship among the parts, the ways of describing the parts and the whole and the boundaries of the object, or the ego-extensions. Previous self-concept research on these structures indicates a general neglect of ordering self-concept traits in hierarchical order. The second aspect of self-concept is the desired self. Meaningful aspects of self-concept largely neglected in research in the area of the desired self include individual acceptance or nonacceptance of a personal characteristic, the dimensions of self-consciousness, self-confidence, and self-values. The third section discusses the social or presenting self. It purports that the tendency of most research is to confuse the presenting self with the extant self-concept. (Author/DB)
