Psychologie der Massen by Gustave Le Bon( Book )

423 editions published between 1895 and 2022 in 4 languages and held by 1,915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit seiner unerhört wirkungsmächtigen Studie "Psychologie der Massen" (1895) legte der französische Soziologe Gustave Le Bon (1841-1931) den Grundstein für die wissenschaftliche Disziplin der Massenpsychologie. Seine scharfsinnigen Analysen hatten erheblichen Einfluss auf die Arbeiten der großen Denker seiner Zeit, darunter Max Weber und Sigmund Freud. Als Erster attestierte Le Bon der Masse eine eigene Form von Moralempfinden, die die intellektuellen und sittlichen Eigenschaften des Einzelnen in den Hintergrund drängt und die Gemeinschaft für die Botschaften von Demagogen empfänglich macht
The crowd by Gustave Le Bon( )

57 editions published between 1896 and 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gustave LeBon's The Crowd is not only a classic, but one of the best-selling scientific books in social psychology and collective behavior ever written. Here, LeBon analyzes the nature of crowds and their role in political movements. He presents crowd behavior as a problem of science and power, a natural phenomenon with practical implications. Originally published in 1895, LeBon's book was the first to expand the scope of inquiry beyond criminal crowds to include all possible kinds of collective phenomena. Its continuing significance is evident even in the Los Angeles riots of 1992 in which LeBon's theories were cited in testimony."--BOOK JACKET. "LeBon emphasizes the various areas of modern life where crowd behavior holds sway, particularly political upheavals. He focuses on electoral campaigns, parliaments, juries, labor agitation, and street demonstrations. At the same time, his treatment of crowds is far from complimentary. In a new introduction to this edition, Robert A. Nye presents a broad analytical understanding of the relationship between power and knowledge in crowd theory. He also discusses the historical circumstances and the various personalities who have shaped our understanding of crowds. Nye emphasizes The Crowd's continuing usefulness to cultural historians, psychologists, sociologists, and political scientists. He also places LeBon in a rich tradition of European social theory."--Jacket
The psychology of socialism by Gustave Le Bon( Book )

176 editions published between 1898 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1899 during a period of crisis for French democracy, The Psychology of Socialism details Le Bon's view of socialism and radicalism primarily as religious movements. The emotionalism and hysteria of the period-especially as manifested during the Dreyfuss Affair-convinced Le Bon that most political controversy is based neither on reasoned deliberation nor rational interest, but on a psychology that partakes of contatgion andhysteria. Le Bon points to the irrationality of religion and uses the religiosity of socialism to debunk socialism as an irrational movement based on hatred and jealousy."--Provided by publisher

Psychology of the Great War : the First World War & its origins by Gustave Le Bon( Book )

35 editions published between 1916 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There have been many efforts to explain the outbreak of war in 1914, but few from so intimate a perspective as LeBon's. He examines such questions as why German scholars tried to deny Germany's obvious guilt in the war, and what explained the remarkable resolve of the French army to persevere in the face of unprecedented adversity." "To such questions, LeBon proposes answers built upon principles well articulated in the larger body of his work. He transforms the character of the debate by demonstrating how psychological principles explain more persuasively both the causes of German academic ignominy and the origins of French valor. Convinced as he was that only psychology could illuminate collective behavior, LeBon dismisses purely economic or political interpretations as ill-conceived and inadequate precisely because they fail to appreciate the role of psychology in the collective behavior of national statesmen, prominent scholars, and ordinary soldiers." "The book will be of interest to social theorists, psychologists concerned with group behavior, and historians of the period."--Jacket
The world in revolt; a psychological study of our times by Gustave Le Bon( )

28 editions published between 1921 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The year 1918 marked a bright and conspicuous date in the annals of our history. After a series of successes which seemed to forecast their eventual triumph, our aggressors suddenly foundered in a cataclysm which at a single blow destroyed the oldest monarchies of Europe. Never did such contradictory and unforeseen events occur within so brief a period. In the age of miracles it would have seemed a thing beyond doubt that the mysterious higher powers had intervened to change the path of destiny. The powers capable, despite all forecasts, of subjugating the most formidable Empire that the world has ever known were mighty indeed, but not mysterious. They belonged to that transcendent domain of psychological forces which, in the course of the centuries, have so often succeeded in dominating material powers, whatever their magnitude. In all the phases of the terrible conflict these moral powers manifested their activity. In countries formerly devoid of military material and without soldiers they called up innumerable legions, armed with ships and guns. Day after day material and visible agencies came into being under the influence of the invisible powers, until the moment when the former became capable of surmounting obstacles regarded as invincible. Psychological forces, in which moral activities are included, do not control the fate of battles merely. They rule over all the departments of national life and determine the destinies of peoples. Conceived in the same spirit as our previous volumes on the war, this new volume will examine, from the psychological point of view, some of the problems to which the great conflict has given rise. We shall see once again that the majority of political, military, economic or social questions belong to the province of psychology. This science, so uncertain in the past, when it confined itself to the domain of pure theory, has become capable of throwing light upon the most difficult problems. Statesmen, generals and manufacturers even invoke its services daily. Although the nature of our feelings has not altered, the aggregations which they are capable of forming, the complex of which constitutes character, have always varied from race to race, which explains why the destinies of the different countries have been so different. It was always dangerous to disregard these differences. The Germans lost the war because they did not understand them. Their blunders in respect of national psychology armed against them nations which asked no better than to remain neutral. The Allies, too, have made blunders of the same nature, especially since the peace. These will be examined in the pages of this book"--Introduction.

La civilisation des Arabes by Gustave Le Bon( Book )

49 editions published between 1884 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De l'apport des arabes en particulier et des musulmans en général à la civilisation, on ne dit encore aujourd'hui que peu de choses. Si les intellectuels leur reconnaissent un rôle, il est souvent minimisé, et le citoyen lambda reste grandement ignorant de ce millénaire où la langue arabe était la langue de la civilisation, et l'islam le lien entre ces hommes qui ont dominé le monde des sciences et des lettres. Mathématiques, astronomie, physique, chimie, médecine, littérature, et bien d'autres furent développées avec ardeur par des hommes tels qu'Averroès, al-Khawarizmi ou encore Avicenne. Cette histoire mal aimée jusqu'à nos jours, Gustave Le Bon l'a consacrée dès 1900 avec La civilisation des arabes, où il fait un exposé passionnant des contributions des arabes aux savoirs de l'humanité. Avec un talent indéniable de vulgarisation, Gustave Le Bon redonne vie à ce millénaire doré, et réhabilite les arabes dans l'histoire, ce qui n'est pas chose superflue, même cent ans après
