Pragmatics of human communication; a study of interactional patterns, pathologies, and paradoxes by Paul Watzlawick ( Book )
116 editions published between 1961 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,733 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
Change; principles of problem formation and problem resolution by Paul Watzlawick ( Book )
17 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in English and held by 1,239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Why some problems persist while others are resolved. This classic book explores why some people can successfully change their lives and others cannot. Here famed psychologist Paul Watzlawick presents what is still often perceived as a radical idea: that the solutions to our problems are inherently embedded in the problems themselves. Tackling the age-old questions surrounding persistence and change, the book asks why problems arise and are perpetuated in some instances but easily resolved in others. Incorporating ideas about human communication, marital and family therapy, the therapeutic effects of paradoxes and of action-oriented techniques of problem resolution, Change draws much from the field of psychotherapy

Communication dans des domaines où elle n'existait pas jusqu'à maintenant (avec les animaux, avec les extra-terrestres)
