What Is an Emotion?: Classic and Contemporary Readings

What Is an Emotion?: Classic and Contemporary Readings Lowest new price: $49.96
Lowest used price: $9.77
List price: $54.95
Brand: imusti

What is an Emotion?, 2/e, draws together important selections from classical and contemporary theories and debates about emotion. Utilizing sources from a variety of subject areas including philosophy, psychology, and biology, editor Robert Solomon provides an illuminating look at the "affective" side of psychology and philosophy from the perspective of the world's great thinkers. Part One of the book features five classic readings from Aristotle, the Stoics, Descartes, Spinoza, and Hume. Part Two offers classic and contemporary theories from the social sciences, presenting selections from such thinkers as Charles Darwin and Sigmund Freud alongside recent work from Paul Ekman, Catherine Lutz, and others. Part Three presents some of the extensive work on emotion that developed in Europe over the past century. Part Four includes essays representing the discussion of emotions among British and American analytic philosophers. The volume is enhanced by a comprehensive introduction by the editor and a multidisciplinary bibliography.
What is an Emotion? is appropriate for any course in which the nature of emotion plays a major role, including philosophy of emotion, philosophy of mind, history of psychology, emotion and motivation, moral psychology, and history and psychology of consciousness courses. The second edition provides much more material on emotions in the sciences and more from recent philosophical theories, encompassing recent shifts in theorizing on three fronts: the wealth of new information on the central nervous system and the brain; new developments in cross-cultural research and anthropology; and the recent emphasis on "cognition" in emotion, both in philosophy and the social sciences. New selections include work by Antonio Damasio, Ronald De Sousa, Paul Ekman, Nico Frijda, Patricia Greenspan, Paul Griffiths, Richard Lazarus, Catherine Lutz, Martha Nussbaum, and Michael Stocker.

001: Remarks on the Philosophy of Psychology (vol. 1) (English and German Edition)

001: Remarks on the Philosophy of Psychology (vol. 1) (English and German Edition) Lowest new price: $73.50
Lowest used price: $19.47
List price: $94.00
Author: Ludwig Wittgenstein

Wittgenstein finished part 1 of the Philosophical Investigations in the spring of 1945. From 1946 to 1949 he worked on the philosophy of psychology almost without interruption. The present two-volume work comprises many of his writings over this period. Some of the remarks contained here were culled for part 2 of the Investigations; others were set aside and appear in the collection known as Zettel. The great majority, however, although of excellent quality, have hitherto remained unpublished.

This bilingual edition of the Remarks on the Philosophy of Psychology presents the first English translation of an essential body of Wittegenstein's work. It elaborates Wittgenstein's views on psychological concepts such as expectation, sensation, knowing how to follow a rule, and knowledge of the sensations of other persons. It also shows strong emphasis on the "anthropological" aspect of Wittgenstein's thought. Philosophers, as well as anthropologists, psychologists, and sociologists will welcome this important publication.

Author: Ludwig Wittgenstein

"These two volumes must be welcomed in particular for the illumination they shed ... on Wittgenstein's already published discussions ... the characteristic deluge of examples, analogies, questions and challanges is as ever, maddening, provoking and thought-provoking, and with the earlier-published works they constitute not just the most detailed but also the best treatment of these profoundly important issues."

Mental Machinery: The Origins and Consequences of Psychological Ideas, 1600-1850

Mental Machinery: The Origins and Consequences of Psychological Ideas, 1600-1850 Lowest new price: $233.92
Lowest used price: $15.00
List price: $55.00
Author: Professor Graham Richards

Is it possible to write a "history of psychology" for the period immediately preceding its recognition as a separate discipline? How did the metaphorical construct we have come to call "the psychological" merge from the ideas of European thinkers from the 17th to the mid-19th centuries? In Mental Machinery, Graham Richards focuses on social constructionist and linguistic perspectives to record the diverse origins of what eventually became the field of psychology.
Writing a history of something that "did not exist," Richards suggests, can be approached in one of two ways. One is to redefine the problem as writing a history of "reflexive discourse" rather than of psychology. A second way is to re-examine the canonical texts - of Descartes, Hobbes, Locke, Hartley, Hume, Mill, and others - in an attempt to reveal what the authors themselves actually intended (and were understood by their contemporaries) to address. Mental Machinery employs both of these methods in a work that offers a radical challenge to received ideas regarding the origins of psychology.

The Immeasurable Mind: The Real Science of Psychology Lowest new price: $25.97

Author: William R. Uttal
Brand: PROMETHEUS BOOKS

Is psychology a science? Unlike Darwinian theory in biology or relativity and quantum theory in physics, psychology lacks the basic quantitative or conceptual foundation for a consensus view about how the mind works. Is psychology on the verge of developing such a foundation? "Probably not," answers psychologist William R. Uttal in this iconoclastic and critical examination of psychology’s underlying principles, assumptions, and concepts.

In five in-depth chapters and one appendix, he explores the following key issues:

*What do we mean by "science" and can psychology be legitimately described as a science?
*What are the general principles that should be applied to any science?
*What is the role of mathematics in psychology?
*Given the current fragmented state of the discipline, is it possible to identify the general principles of a scientific psychology?
*Is experimental psychology just applied epistemology and not really scientific?

Uttal comes to the conclusion that psychology is a science only to the extent that it is behaviorist in orientation. By comparing his discipline to other sciences, he identifies its limits, establishes a set of principles that help to define psychology as a science, and suggests plausible future developments.
