The American college; a psychological and social interpretation of the higher learning by Nevitt Sanford( Book )

40 editions published between 1962 and 2005 in English and German and held by 1,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fundamentally, education should look to the future. It should prepare its students to live in a world of new possibilities and of new dangers. To do so, it must itself be able to change and develop rationally. A central thesis of this stimulating book is that scientific method, more than any other procedure known to man, provides the basis for intelligent change: for change based on systematic knowledge rather than on improvisation, hunch, or dogma. This rich, comprehensive volume charts the way into relatively unexplored territory. The chart is sufficiently detailed to reveal the diverse, interesting terrain as well as the rich ore that has already been discovered in this area by systematic research. It contains more information about and more insightful discussion of the varied aspects of the American college than has been available hitherto. It is a splendid beginning; it highlights what needs to be done as well as what has been done"--Foreword. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
Self & society; social change and individual development by Nevitt Sanford( Book )

29 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in English and held by 1,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How does his social environment change an individual, and why do these changes occur? Can social institutions be shaped and molded profoundly enough to afford each member of a society his maximum potential for happiness, effective functioning, and complete development? In this new work a distinguished psychologist evolves a theory of personality and society designed to help guide the work of institutions responsible for individual growth and development. Drawing on his vast experience--as an educator, a prison psychologist, a practicing psychoanalyst, and as the director of major studies in child development, personality assessment, the social psychology of higher education, and alcoholism and related problems--Professor Sanford has designed a developmental model intended to guide work in institutions which mold the individual: from family through schools, colleges, child guidance clinics, and mental hospitals. With exceptional lucidity, he examines the central issues in furthering desirable change through intervention in individual and group processes. He achieves notable advances in integrating personality theory and sociological theory: he joins psychoanalytic "ego psychologists" and other personality theorists in developing a dynamic-organismic theory broader than that of classical psychoanalysis and more in keeping with contemporary social theory. The author's clear style and firm grasp of his subject add further to the significance of Self and Society. It will be a stimulating textbook in social psychology, personality, and culture, and personality, and will make indispensable reading for behavioral scientists, psychiatrists, and educators, as well as for all professionals who work to promote mental health, education and social welfare."--Provided by publisher

Nevitt Sanford's career in psychology has spanned the years from the 1930's to the present. The canon of his works is vast--eight books and some 200 chapters, monographs, and articles. The contributions to this book, by students and colleagues, remind us of the great variety and significance of the concerns and interests he has addressed--development over the course of a human life, education (with emphasis upon higher education), personality theory, and political psychology (incorporating the concept of social action). Arriving upon the scene in psychology when he did, one of Nevitt Sanford's first publications, KhY~i~~~, K~~~££~li!r, ~££ ~£~£l~~~~iE (1943), reflected the interest of that time in biology and physiology (a concern of psychology which declined for some time thereafter, to be revived in the 1960's). It was also, however, the decade after psyc- analysis and Marxist ideology had made their dramatic entrance upon the stage of American intellectual life, and these two schools of thought, in many ways contradictory, have profoundly influenced him ever since. Nevitt has never lost his fascination with the power of infancy and childhood to affect development, and with the workings of the unconscious
