Pragmatics of human communication : a study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes by Paul Watzlawick( Book )

56 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in English and held by 1,554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Called one of the best books ever about human communication, and a perennial bestseller, Pragmatics of Human Communication has formed the foundation of much contemporary research into interpersonal communication, in addition to laying the groundwork for context-based approaches to psychotherapy. The authors present the simple but radical idea that problems in life often arise from issues of communication, rather than from deep psychological disorders, reinforcing their conceptual explorations with case studies and well-known literary examples. Written with humor and for a variety of readers, this book identifies simple properties and axioms of human communication and demonstrates how all communications are actually a function of their contexts

141 editions published between 1983 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Watzlawicks kleiner Band Anleitung zum Unglücklichsein bricht rigoros mit der Vorstellung, Ziel des Menschen sei das Streben nach Glück. In Form von Metaphern, Aphorismen, Anekdoten und hintergründigen Geschichten beschreibt Watzlawick in amüsanter und ironischer Art die vielfältigen Möglichkeiten, den eigenen Alltag unerträglich zu gestalten und trivialen Ereignissen eine außergewöhnliche Bedeutung beizumessen.

Die dort entstandene Kommunikationstheorie wurde im Wesentlichen aus der Erforschung von Paradoxien der menschlichen Kommunikation und ihrer Störungen gewonnen

Those who believe that the search for happiness eventually leads to happiness should consult the chapter "Beware of Arriving."--Publisher description
