Psychology, the science of mental life by George A Miller( Book )

95 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 2,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many people think psychology is difficult or quite unrelated to their everyday lives. This book attempts to refute these two claims, providing an introduction to the history and present-day scope of the subject
Language and communication by George A Miller( Book )

92 editions published between 1951 and 2001 in 5 languages and held by 1,684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an introductory and necessarily superficial way the book tries to suggest the breadth of the spectrum of linguistic studies. These various approaches are discussed in terms that make sense to a modern psychologist. The bias is behavioristic-not fanatically behavioristic, but certainly tainted by a preference. There does not seem to be a more scientific kind of bias, or, if there is, it turns out to be behaviorism after all. The careful reader will discover occasional subjective lapses. Undoubtedly in these instances, a scientific approach is possible, but the author was unable to find one or think of one. The argument nonetheless goes as far down the behavioristic path as one can clearly see the way. It is necessary to be explicit about this behavioristic bias, for there is much talk in the pages that follow about patterns and organizations. Psychological interest in patterning is traditionally subjective, but not necessarily so. Discussion of the patterning of symbols and the influences of context run through the manuscript like clotheslines on which the variegated laundry of language and communication is hung out to dry. It is not pleasant to think that these clotheslines must be made from the sand of subjectivity"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
The psychology of communication; seven essays by George A Miller( Book )

110 editions published between 1697 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 1,393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this book treat a variety of topics - from cybernetics and automation to physical research and the supernatural - but the diversity is largely on the surface. Underneath is a persistent concern with problems located at the intersection of scientific psychology and communication theory, concern with an attempt to formulate a psychological conception of man as an information-gathering, information-processing system. Most of these essays deal explicitly with psychological aspects of communication. Some reflect a communicative concern less directly. Memory, for example, is a communication from the past to the future, and the channel it travels from source to destination is often the human nervous system; the problem is to encode the message in such a way as to resist the ubiquitous noise that this channel introduces

Plans and the structure of behavior by George A Miller( Book )

56 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notions of a Plan that guides behavior and an Image which is all the accumulated, organized knowledge that the organism has about itself and its world are the central topics of this book.

This publication, which is divided into three parts, contains the report of a study group of the National Institute of Education which met to investigate some of the problems of linguistic communication. Part 1 summarizes the general point of view of the group. Part 2 discusses objectives, strategies, current status, and time scale. Part 3 describes research activities which cover the social and developmental context with influences outside the classroom, characteristics of teachers and classroom, characteristics of the reader, influence on reading of dialectal variation, and the processes of reading and writing, especially basic literacy, comprehension of language, writing, and second language learning. The study group recommends a program of research and development on learning and instruction in the elements of linguistic communication--reading, writing, listening, speaking--including interactions among these elements.
