Human behavior and environment : advances in theory and research by Irwin Altman( Book )

45 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first in a series of volumes concerned with research encompassed by the rather broad term "environment and behavior." The goal of the series is to begin the process of integration of knowledge on environmental and behavioral topics so that researchers and professionals can have material from diverse sources accessible in a single publication. The field of environment and behavior is broad and interdiscipliƯ nary, with researchers drawn from a variety of traditional disciplines such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, and other social and behavioral sciences, and from the biological and life sciences of medicine, psychiatry, biology, and ethology. The interdisƯ ciplinary quality of the field is also reflected in the extensive involveƯ ment of environmental professionals from architecture, urban planƯ ning, landscape architecture, interior design, and other fields such as recreation and natural resources, to name just a few. At present, the field has a somewhat chaotic flavor, with research being carried out by a variety of scholars who publish in a multitude of outlets. Many researchers and practitioners are unaware of the state of knowledge regarding a specific topic because of the unavailability of integrated reference materials. There are only a handful of books dealing with environment and behavior, most of them unintegrated collections of readings, with only an occasional systematic analysis of some facet of the field
Children and the environment by Irwin Altman( Book )

16 editions published between 1978 and 1980 in English and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first two volumes of the series we elected to cover a broad spectrum of topics in the environment and behavior field, ranging from theoretical to applied, and including disciplinary, interdiscipliƯ nary, and professionally related topics. Chapters in these earlier volƯ umes dealt with leisure and recreation, the elderly, personal space, aesthetics, energy, behavioral approaches to environmental problems, methodological issues, social indicators, industrial settings, and the like. Chapters were written by psychologists, sociologists, geograƯ phers, and other social scientists, and by authors from professional design fields such as urban planning, operations research, landscape architecture, and so on. Our goal in these first two volumes was to present a sampling of areas in the emerging environment and behavior field and to give readers some insight into the diversity of research and theoretical perspectives that characterize the field. Beginning with the present volume, our efforts will be directed at a series of thematic volumes. The present collection of chapters is focused on children and the environment, and, as much as possible, we invited contributions that reflect a variety of theoretical and emƯ pirical perspectives on this topic. The next volume in the series, now in preparation, will address the area of "culture and the environment." Suggestions for possible future topics are welcome. Irwin Altman Joachim F
The study of behavioral development by Joachim F Wohlwill( Book )

The Study of Behavioral Development
Environment and the social sciences; perspectives and applications by Joachim F Wohlwill( Book )

24 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This anthology contains papers originally presented at a meeting of the American Psychological Society and some selected from previous publications. The papers are arranged under three major headings: (1) "General Environmental Conditions" (with sub-heads: "Crowding and Population Density" (four papers), "The Behavioral Side of Air Pollution" (three papers)); (2) "Special Environmental Settings" (with sub-heads: "Institutional Settings" (four papers), "Residential Areas" (five papers), "Recreation Areas" (four papers)); and (3) "Environmental Decision Making" (three papers). All papers concern some aspect of the behavioral responses in man-environment interactions, but not all are written by psychologists. There are papers by geographers, architects, ethologists, ecologists, planners, natural resource managers, psychiatrists, and sociologists. The editors contribute an extensive introduction and an epilogue where the role of behavioral scientists in study of environmental and behavioral science is summarized and future research prospects essayed.

Elderly people and the environment( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume in our series follows the format of the immediately in dealing with a topical theme of considerable imporƯ preceding ones tance in the environment and behavior field. In view of current and projected demographic trends, it is a certainty that a broad-ranging set of issues concerned with the elderly and the physical environment will continue to be of focal pertinence-if not of increasing importance--in the remaining decades of this century. The present volume also follows in the tradition of earlier volumes in the series in being eclectic with respect to content, theory, and methƯ odology and in including contributions from a variety of disciplines, such as anthropology, economics, psychology, geography, and urban and regional planning. To have encompassed the whole array of disciƯ plines and topics in this emerging field in a single volume would have been impossible. We trust that the sample of contributions that we have selected is provocative and that it will illustrate the range of problems and topics and point to promising areas of study and analysis. We are pleased to have M. Powell Lawton as a guest co-editor for this volume. His broad-ranging expertise, perceptive judgment, and fine editorial talents have contributed enormously to the volume"--Font no determinada
Behavior and the natural environment by Irwin Altman( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The theme of the present volume concerns people' s response to the natural environment, considered at scales varying from that of a houseƯ hold plant to that of vast wilderness areas. Our decision to focus on this particular segment of the physical environment was prompted in part by the intrinsic interest in this subject on the part of a diverse group of sodal scientists and professionals-and of laypersons, for that matterƯ and in part by the relative neglect of this topic in standard treatments of the environment-behavior field. It also serves to bring out once again the interdisdplinary nature of that field, and we are pleased to have been able to inc1ude representatives from geography, sodology, soda! ecology, and natural recreation among our contributors. We believe that this volume will serve a useful purpose in helping to integrate the findƯ ings and concepts in this presently somewhat fragmented field, scatƯ tered as they are over a very diverse array of publications representing a similarly varied group of spedalties. It is hoped that the result will be to stimulate future development of this area and to add a measure of inƯ creased coherence to it. Volume 7 of our series will be devoted to the theme of elderly people and the environment, with M. Powell Lawton joining us as guest co-editor. The titles of the papers comprising Volume 7 are shown on page v. Irwin Altman J oachim F. Wohlwill ix Contents."--Font no determinada

Transportation and behavior by Irwin Altman( Book )

10 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume in our series, Human Behavior and Environment, is devoted to a specific topic, continuing the pattern established in the last two volumes. The current theme is behavioral science aspects of transƯ portation. This topic was chosen to exemplify a problem area of practical import to which psychologists, sociologists, and other behavioral and social scientists can make and have been making notable contributions. Our volume includes papers from a variety of psychological perspecƯ tives, including human factors, environmental psychology, and beƯ havior modification, along with other contributions from a sociologist and a transportation engineer interested in behavioral science contribuƯ tions to transportation. Joining us as guest editor for this volume is Peter Everett, an environmental psychologist whose area of specialty is the study of behavioral components of transportation systems. Volume 6 of our series, currently in preparation, will be devoted to behavior and the natural environment. A provisional table of contents for that volume appears on page v. Irwin Altman Joachim F.

Environment and culture by Irwin Altman( Book )

12 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following upon the first two volumes in this series, which dealt with a broad spectrum of topics in the environment and behavior field, ranging from theoretical to applied, and including disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and professionally oriented approaches, we have chosen to devote subƯ sequent volumes to more specifically defined topics. Thus, Volume Three dealt with Children and the Environment, seen from the combined perspective of researchers in environmental and developmental psyƯ chology. The present volume has a similarly topical coverage, dealing with the complex set of relationships between culture and the physical environment. It is broad and necessarily eclectic with respect to content, theory, methodology, and epistemological stance, and the contributors to it represent a wide variety of fields and disciplines, including psyƯ chology, geography, anthropology, economics, and environmental deƯ sign. We were fortunate to enlist the collaboration of Amos Rapoport in the organization and editing of this volume, as he brings to this task a particularly pertinent perspective that combines anthropology and arƯ chitecture. Volume Five of the series, presently in preparation, will cover the subject of behavioral science aspects of transportation. Irwin Altman Joachim F.

Visions of aesthetics, the environment & development : the legacy of Joachim F. Wohlwill by Roger M Downs( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Derived from a conference honoring the legacy of Joachim Wohlwill, this volume is designed to reflect as many facets of the late scholar's wide-ranging work as possible. As its title indicates, the book identifies three broad areas in which Wohlwill made significant contributions: art and aesthetics, human-environment interaction, and concepts of development. In each of these areas Wohlwill made seminal contributions, helping to shape, maintain, and even change the direction of research and thought. Specific topics addressed here by his colleagues, students, and contemporaries include: the sha
