Why everyone (else) is a hypocrite : evolution and the modular mind by Robert Kurzban( Book )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We're all hypocrites. Why? Hypocrisy is the natural state of the human mind. Robert Kurzban shows us that the key to understanding our behavioral inconsistencies lies in understanding the mind's design. The human mind consists of many specialized units designed by the process of evolution by natural selection. While these modules sometimes work together seamlessly, they don't always, resulting in impossibly contradictory beliefs, vacillations between patience and impulsiveness, violations of our supposed moral principles, and overinflated views of ourselves. This modular, evolutionary psychological view of the mind undermines deeply held intuitions about ourselves, as well as a range of scientific theories that require a "self" with consistent beliefs and preferences. Modularity suggests that there is no "I." Instead, each of us is a contentious "we"--A collection of discrete but interacting systems whose constant conflicts shape our interactions with one another and our experience of the world"--Jacket
The hidden agenda of the political mind : how self-interest shapes our opinions and why we won't admit it by Jason Weeden( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When it comes to politics, we often perceive our own beliefs as fair and socially beneficial, while seeing opposing views as merely self-serving. But in fact most political views are governed by self-interest, even if we usually don't realize it. Challenging our fiercely held notions about what motivates us politically, this book explores how self-interest divides the public on a host of hot-button issues, from abortion and the legalization of marijuana to same-sex marriage, immigration, affirmative action, and income redistribution. Expanding the notion of interests beyond simple economics, Jason Weeden and Robert Kurzban look at how people's interests clash when it comes to their sex lives, social status, family, and friends. Drawing on a wealth of data, they demonstrate how different groups form distinctive bundles of political positions that often stray far from what we typically think of as liberal or conservative. They show how we engage in unconscious rationalization to justify our political positions, portraying our own views as wise, benevolent, and principled while casting our opponents' views as thoughtless and greedy. While many books on politics seek to provide partisans with new ways to feel good about their own side, The Hidden Agenda of the Political Mind illuminates the hidden drivers of our politics, even if it's a picture neither side will find flattering"--

Speed dating worry / self harm ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The first item on the programme is about speed dating and the 'psychology of attraction.' The second is about worry. We take worrying for granted but we may not be aware of is that it is a useful preparation for certain difficulties or events. Persaud explores the limits of worry and investigates what happens when a worry becomes pathological or when people suffer severe anxiety disorders. The third and final item is about self harm. New studies are attempting to assess just how common this problem is. And what kind of treatment they might best be helped by
