Описание: This book offers arguments against the view that interpersonal understanding involves a `folk` or `commonsense` psychology, a view which Ratcliffe suggests is a theoretically motivated abstraction. His alternative account draws on phenomenology, neuroscience and developmental psychology, exploring patterned interactions in shared social situations.

Описание: Research on humor is carried out in a number of areas in psychology, including the cognitive (What makes something funny?, developmental (when do we
develop a sense of humor?), and social (how is humor used in social interactions?) Although there is enough interest in the area to have spawned several societies, the literature is
dispersed in a number of primary journals, with little in the way of integration of the material into a book. Dr. Martin is one of the best known researchers in the area, and his research
goes across subdisciplines in psychology to be of wide appeal.
This is a singly authored monograph that provides in one source, a summary of information researchers might
wish to know about research into the psychology of humor.The material is scholarly, but the presentation of the material is suitable for people unfamiliar with the subject-making the book
suitable for use for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses on the psychology of humor-which have not had a textbook source. This book has been nominated for the
2007 AATH Book Award for Humor/Laughter Research category!It provides up-to-date coverage of research on humor and laughter in every area of psychology. The research
findings are integrated into a coherent conceptual framework.
It includes recent brain imaging studies, evolutionary models, and animal research. It draws on contributions
from sociology, linguistics, neuroscience, and anthropology. It provides an overview of theories of humor and early research.
It explores applications of humor in
psychotherapy, education, and the workplace. It points out interesting topics for further research and promising res
arch methodologies. It is written in a scholarly yet easily accessible style.
Описание: The goal of this book is to characterize the nature of abilities, competencies, and expertise, and to understand the relations among them. The book therefore seeks to integrate into a coherent discipline what formerly have been, to a large extent, three separate disciplines. Such integration makes both theoretical and practical sense, because abilities represent potentials to achieve competencies, and ultimately, expertise. Authors of each chapter (a) present their views on the nature of abilities, competencies, and expertise; (b) present their views on the interrelationships among these three constructs; (c) state their views on how these three constructs can be assessed and developed; (d) present empirical data supporting their position; (e) compare and contrast their position to alternative positions, showing why they believe their position to be preferred; and (f) speculate on the implications of their viewpoint for science, education, and society.

Описание: The two essays provide a critical examination of theory and research in the field of evolutionary psychology. The view advanced here is that philosophical materialism and minimalist assumptions about adaptation serve Darwinian psychology better than the more popular alternative view that relies on cognitive dualism and propositional-attitude psychology to formulate evolutionary psychology theory. A commitment to cognitive dualism is destined to undermine the physical basis of behavior upon which evolutionary theory depends. Many evolutionary psychologists do not see this but are seduced by the easy way in which hypotheses can be formulated using the ‘propositional-attitude’ model. The challenge is to develop a materialistic and mechanistic approach to understanding human cognition and behavior, including linguistic and social behavior.
Academic interest in the phenomenon of joint attention-- the capacity toattend to an object together with another creature--has increased rapidly over thepast two decades. Yet it isn't easy to spell out in detail what joint attention is, how it ought to be characterized, and what exactly its significance consists in. Thewriters for this volume address these and related questions by drawing on a varietyof disciplines, including developmental and comparative psychology, philosophy ofmind, and social neuroscience. The volume organizes their contributions along threemain themes: definitional concerns, such as the question of whether or not jointattention should be understood as an irreducibly basic state of mind; processes andmechanisms obtaining on both the neural and behavioral levels; and the functionalsignificance of joint attention, in particular the role it plays in comprehendingspatial perspectives and understanding other minds. The collected papers present newwork by leading researchers on one of the key issues in social cognition. Theydemonstrate that an adequate theory of joint attention is indispensable for acomprehensive account of mind.
Описание: This book is an introduction to Vygotsky and his theories of language and second language acquisition. Employing a dual framework of metatheory and metaphor, the author focuses on Vygotsky's cultural-historical perspective (contrasted with the sociocultural heritage more prevalent in the West) and its emphasis on history as change and thought as related to action. Included also is a comparison of Vygotskyan and Chomskyan theories of language and grammar.

Описание: What can art tell us about how the brain works? And what can the brain tell us about how we perceive and create art? Humans have created visual art throughout history and its significance has been an endless source of fascination and debate. Visual art is a product of the human brain, but is art so complex and sophisticated that brain function and evolution are not relevant to our understanding? This book explores the links between visual art and the brain by examining a broad range of issues including: the impact of eye and brain disorders on artistic output; the relevance of Darwinian principles to aesthetics; and the constraints imposed by brain processes on the perception of space, motion and colour in art. Arguments and theories are presented in an accessible manner and general principles are illustrated with specific art examples, helping students to apply their knowledge to new artworks.
