Through the rearview mirror : historical reflections on psychology by John Macnamara( )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, John Macnamara shows how a number of important thinkers through the ages have approached problems of mental representation and the acquisition of knowledge. He discusses the relevance of these approaches to modern cognitive psychology, focusing on central themes that he believes have strongly influenced modern psychology. This is not a neutral historical survey, but a vehicle for Macnamara's arguments on the relevance and worth of certain aspects of psychological and philosophical thought. The historical figures discussed are quite varied--from Plato to Thomas Jefferson to Sigmund Freud--and include numerous Christian philosophers such as Augustine and Thomas Aquinas. --From publisher's description

Medieval folklore : a guide to myths, legends, tales, beliefs, and customs by Carl Lindahl( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over a decade in the making, Medieval folklore offers a wide-ranging guide to the lore of the Middle Ages - from the mundane to the supernatural. Definitive and lively articles focus on the great tales and traditions of the age and include information on daily and nightly customs and activities; religious beliefs of the pagan, Christian, Muslim, and Jew; key works of oral and written literature; traditional music and art; holidays and feasts; food and drink; and plants and animals, both real and fantastical. While most books on medieval folklore focus primarily on the West, this unique volume brings together an eclectic range of experts to treat the subject from a global perspective. Especially remarkable are the surveys of the major medieval traditions including Arab-Islamic, Baltic, English, Finno-Ugric, French, Hispanic, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Jewish, Scandinavian, Scottish, Slavic and Welsh. For anyone who has ever wanted a path through the tangle of Arthurian legends, or the real lowdown on St. Patrick, or the last word on wolf lore - this is the place to look"--Back cover
