Development in context : acting and thinking in specific environments by Robert H Wozniak( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume leading developmentalists address the question of how children's thinking develops in context by drawing on the theories of Vygotsky, Gibson, and Piaget. Analyses of the ecology and the dynamics of behavior have become popular, emphasizing the particulars of people acting in specific environments and the many complex factors of human body and mind that contribute to action and thought. This volume brings together many of the current efforts to deal with development in this richly ecological, dynamic way. The research reported demonstrates that recent years have pr

Worlds of childhood by Robert H Wozniak( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[The book] has been specifically designed to bring the work of developmental psychologists together with that of historians of childhood, psychological anthropologists, sociologists, psycholinguists, and experts in other fields, to examine the diversity of children's development in the complex, changing social contexts in which it occurs. In the [book's] chapters ... we will be studying children as they change within these developing contexts. Through this study we will be led to a deeper understanding of the many forces that bring about change--change in individuals, in families, in societies, and in humankind"--Introduction

Behavior : an introduction to comparative psychology by John B Watson( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Watson states that this volume on behavior has been written to be serviceable in classroom work in psychology and biology. Watson first discusses what he considers the unsatisfactory nature of present psychological premises and the nature of the behaviorist theory. Issues explored in behaviorist studies such as sense perception, instinct, habits, learning processes, and conditioning are explored. Experimental methodology is examined. A discussion of animal learning and comparative behavior is provided"--Publisher. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)

An introduction to comparative psychology. The limits of animal intelligence by C. Lloyd Morgan( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"My central object in this work is to discuss the relation of the psychology of man to that of the higher animals, since such a discussion forms in my opinion the best introduction to Comparative Psychology. A secondary object, subordinate indeed, yet forming an integral part of my plan, is to consider the place of consciousness in nature, the relation of psychical evolution to physical and biological evolution, and the light which comparative psychology throws on certain philosophical problems. It was my original intention to compare my own results with those which have been reached by previous observers and thinkers in this field of investigation and inquiry. But I found that, in the first place, this would largely increase the bulk of the book; that, in the second place, it would introduce a controversial tone, which I was desirous of avoiding; and that it would in other ways interfere with what appeared the most convenient mode of developing my subject. I therefore abandoned my original intention, and adopted a more direct method of exposition and discussion. It is, however, all the more incumbent on me to acknowledge my indebtedness to my predecessors and contemporaries. Those whose acquaintance with the subject is most wide and extensive, will best be able to judge how far what I have written is a mere restatement of what has already been written, and how far, if at all, I have done something towards advancing the boundaries of our knowledge or rendering the knowledge that we possess clearer and more exact. Others will perhaps do well to regard me as a secretary who has, I trust, with due diligence thrown into convenient form the data with which he has been supplied"--Preface.

An introduction to objective psychopathology by G. V Hamilton( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is essentially a psychopathologist's account of his studies and interpretations of various modes of human and animal behavior. It is meant to reflect the importance of effecting such studies by the use of scientifically formulated methods of research as an essential supplement to the always useful but never quite trustworthy methods of field and clinical observation. Disturbances of the human reactive equipment may vary as to seriousness from a mere habitual lack of poise to a grave form of insanity without lying outside the range of the psychopathologist's specific interests. All such disturbances reflect, in my opinion, faults in the development of identifiable responsive properties of the personality. My efforts to develop methods for the identification of such properties may seem, at first sight, to have led me far afield, since my researches have included not only nervous patients, relatively "normal" adults and children as subjects, but such animals as monkeys, cattle, dogs, cats, rats and gophers. There are, however, many justifying precedents for such a procedure in other fields of medicine; and as I have currently sought, over a good many years, to correlate my clinical findings with the findings of my field and experimental observations of these various human and animal subjects, there have appeared here and there certain behavioristic common denominators, as it were, which seem to me to be of value for an understanding of human behavior. The results of this work are here offered to physicians, social workers and lay readers who may share with me a hope that in time psychopathologic research will make possible the construction of textbooks devoted to systematic accounts of the human personality as an integration of adjustive functions, each of which may be regarded as playing a recognizable role in the determination of total response to particular types of situations.

A theoretical basis of human behavior, by Albert Paul Weiss by Albert Paul Weiss( Book )

"In this book I have tried to be of service to three classes of readers: (1) The psychologists, social theorists, philosophers, and biologists, for whom behaviorism is of systematic interest; (2) The various investigators in the medical group for whom behaviorism is of practical interest; (3) That larger group of writers, educators, and statesmen, for whom behaviorism is of general interest"--Préface

Psychology from the standpoint of a behaviorist by John B Watson( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines psychology in the context of behaviorism and reports upon those things that any properly trained individual can observe. Behavior psychology has been called physiology, muscle-twitch psychology and biology, but if it helps to rid us of the constraints of present-day conventional psychology and teaches us to face the human being more directly, what name it is given is not a matter of much consequence. Behavior psychology has had a rapid development and is a direct outgrowth of work on animal behavior. While behavior psychology borrows from conditioned reflex methods and psychopathologists, it is neither an objective psychology nor a modified system of psychoanalysis. The present volume disrupts the traditional classification of psychological topics and their conventional treatment. Terms such as consciousness, sensation, perception, attention, will, image and the like are avoided by the author due to his belief that they are used inconsistently and have unclear meanings. Terms such as thinking and memory have been redefined to conform with behavioristic psychology. Also, in this text the author has clung to the genetic method rather closely in hopes that students grasp the genesis of the various types of organization.
