The psychology of gender by Alice Hendrickson Eagly ( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 1,862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The psychology of gender and gender differences is a vast subject with significant social implications. It has prompted many questions with few concrete answers: To what extent does gender influence one's behaviors, thoughts, and feelings? How does gender affect how we are perceived by others? Which gender differences are most meaningful? How do heredity and environment interact to create gender differences? Although there are myriad perspectives on such questions, most available books on the topic focus on a particular viewpoint, omitting discussion of related ideas. This enlightening volume investigates the psychology of gender from a variety of theoretical perspectives ranging from the evolutionary to the social constructionist account. Providing comprehensive coverage of different gender theories, and compiling these theories in an intelligent and relevant framework for examination, The Psychology of Gender offers the broadest available exploration of the timely and provocative questions involved in gender studies. The Psychology of Gender, in its attempt to understand all of the issues surrounding gender and gender issues, does not give preference to one specific viewpoint or approach. Instead, the chapter authors vary both in how they view gender and in how they support their view: Some address broad sweeping theories, while others focus on a specific issue. The book is divided into three major sections. Chapters in the first section address how gender affects our thoughts and behavior. The second section explores broad theories of why the two genders appear to be different. Finally, the third section illustrates how gender operates in biological and cultural ways. The concluding section is an integration of all the perspectives discussed in the book. Each of these sections is steeped in both theory and data, with chapters written by distinguished authorities. Together, their contributions provide a uniquely comprehensive, interdisciplinary view of the many controversial issues that surround the topic. Providing a valuable framework for the study of gender, this book illuminates the social and scholarly debates that have profound implications for the way men and women perceive themselves, and how these perceptions affect their relationships at work, with their children, and with each other. It will interest clinicians and researchers, academics, and informed general readers alike. Clearly written and well integrated, it serves as a text for courses in the psychology of gender and as supplementary reading for introductory courses in psychology, social psychology, and sociology

Problems are a central part of human life.

Thinking styles by Robert J Sternberg ( Book )
25 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 1,469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher description: In our society, the recognition of talent depends largely on idealized and entrenched perceptions of academic achievement and job performance. Thinking Styles bucks this trend by emphasizing the method of our thought rather than its content. Psychologist Robert Sternberg argues that ability often goes unappreciated and uncultivated not because of lack of talent, but because of conflicting styles of thinking and learning. Using a variety of examples that range from scientific studies to personal anecdotes, Sternberg presents a theory of thinking styles that aims to explain why aptitude tests, school grades, and classroom performance often fail to identify real ability. He believes that criteria for intelligence in both school and the workplace are unfortunately based on the ability to conform rather than learn. He takes the theory a step further by stating that 'achievement' can be a result of the compatibility of personal and institutional thinking styles, and 'failure' is too often the result of a conflict of thinking styles, rather than a lack of intelligence or aptitude. Sternberg bases his theory on hard scientific data, yet presents a work that remains highly accessible

Tacit knowledge in professional practice researcher and practitioner perspectives by Robert J Sternberg ( )
20 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When professionals reflect on their work, they often speak of "learning by doing" or of using professional "instinct" or "intuition." Social and behavioral scientists characterize these phenomena as "implicit learning" and using "tacit knowledge." This volume explores learning and professional practice in several interestingly different disciplines from the perspectives of both the insiders who populate these workplaces and the social scientists who are interested in their work for more theoretical reasons. The book thus includes not only critical workplace experiences but also an understanding of the psychological mechanisms that underlie learning from experience in professional disciplines. It will be valuable to theoretical and applied psychologists, particularly those interested in professional education and training."--BOOK JACKET

The evolution of intelligence by Robert J Sternberg ( )
15 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How is one to understand the nature of intelligence? One approach is through psychometric testing, but such an approach often puts the ""cart before the horse""--the test before the theory. Another approach is to use evolutionary theory. This criterion has been suggested by a number of individuals in the past, from Charles Darwin in the more distant past to Howard Gardner, Stephen Gould, Steven Pinker, Carl Sagan, David Stenhouse, and many others. The chapters in this book address three major questions: 1. Does evolutionary theory help us understand the nature of human intelligence? 2
