Sex differences in cognitive abilities by Diane F Halpern( Book )

60 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fourth edition of 'Sex Differences in Cognitive Abilities' critically examines the breadth of research on this complex and controversial topic, with the principal aim of helping the reader to understand where sex differences are found--and where they are not. Since the publication of the third edition, there have been many exciting and illuminating developments in our understanding of cognitive sex differences. Modern neuroscience has transformed our understanding of the mind and behavior in general, but particularly the way we think about cognitive sex differences. But neuroscience is still in its infancy and has often been misused to justify sex role stereotypes. There has also been the publication of many exaggerated and unreplicated claims regarding cognitive sex differences. Consequently, throughout the book there is recognition of the critical importance of good research; an amiable skepticism of the nature and strength of evidence behind any claim of sex difference; an appreciation of the complexity of the questions about cognitive sex differences; and the ability to see multiple sides of an issues, while also realizing that some claims are well-reasoned and supported by data and others are politicized pseudoscience. The author endeavors to present and interpret all the relevant data fairly, and in the process reveals how there are strong data for many different views. The book explores sex differences from many angles and in many settings, including the effect of different abilities and levels of education on sex differences, pre-existing beliefs or stereotypes, culture, and hormones. Sex differences in the brain are explored along with the stern caveat to "mind the gap" between brain structures and behaviors. Readers should come away with a new understanding of the way nature and nurture work together to make us unique individuals while also creating similarities and differences that are often (but not always) tied to our being female and male. 'Sex Differences in Cognitive Abilities, Fourth Edition, ' can be used as a textbook or reference in a range of courses and will inspire the next generation of researchers. Halpern engages readers in the big societal questions that are inherent in the controversial topic of whether, when, and how much males and females differ psychologically. It should be required reading for parents, teachers, and policy makers who want to know about the ways in which males and females are different and similar."--Publisher's website
Thought and knowledge : an introduction to critical thinking by Diane F Halpern( Book )

67 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When we consider that many of the people alive today will someday be working in jobs that do not yet exist, and that the explosion of information in our world means that today's knowledge will quickly become outdated, two goals for eduction emerge: learning how to learn and how to think critically about information that changes at a rapid rate. Neither education nor business as usual will provide adequately thoughtful perspectives and creative solutions to the problems society faces today. A genuine commitment to an educated thinking populace will." "This book, the third edition of Diane Halpern's best-selling text, was written as tangible evidence of that commitment. In it, the author applies the theories and research of cognitive psychology to the development of critical thinking and learning skills. In addition to its rigorous scholarly grounding, the book is distinguished by its clear writing style, humorous tone, and numerous practical examples and anecdotes." "The book features new and expanded coverage of topics including: analyzing visual arguments; asking questions as a means of understanding complex information; accessing information in problem solving, decision making, and argument analysis; and thinking critically about controversial research." "The lessons from this text are brought home in the workbook, Thinking Critically about Critical Thinking, available separately. An instructor's manual is also available from the publisher."--Jacket

Women at the top : powerful leaders tell us how to combine work and family by Diane F Halpern( Book )

"Very few women make it to the top of their profession and among those who do, almost half have no children or other caregiving responsibilities. The message for working women everywhere has been clear: to make it to the top you have to pick one - your family or your career. In this book, two experts present a new look at how women can create dually successful lives. Women everywhere would like an answer to the universal question of how to succeed in their profession when they are also wives, mothers, and family caregivers. Using the best psychological research and personal interviews with 62 women with families and prominent leadership positions in the US, China, and Hong Kong, Women at the Top examines the most pressing question of our time - can women have it all?"--Jacket
