The natural history of a delinquent career by Clifford R Shaw( Book )

1 edition published in 1931 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The life-history record is a relatively new instrument for the study of human behavior. As such it should be used with full consciousness of its values, limitations, and possible shortcomings. No one will question the value of the life-history as a human document when written freely and frankly. It admits the reader into the inner experience of other men, men apparently widely different from himself: criminals, hobos, and other adventurers. Through the life-history he becomes acquainted with those far removed from the sheltered routine of his own existence in much the same intimate way that he knows himself or a friend. As he lives, for the time being, their careers and participates in their memories and mistakes, aspirations and failures he comes to realize the basic likeness of all human beings despite the differences, real as they are, of biological endowment and social experience. Granted that the life-history possesses this unique human value, what if any is its function as an instrument of scientific inquiry? Is the writer of the document telling the truth? Is he not influenced, consciously or unconsciously, by his conception of his audience? Does any person know sufficiently well the causes of his own behavior for his statement, sincere though it may be, to be given full credence? These and other questions must be squarely faced before any final decision may be made upon the merits of the life-history as an instrument of scientific research. No attempt will be made to give an answer here. But attention should be called to the care and discrimination used in the securing and checking of the documents in this volume and the other life-histories in preparation for this series. First of all the person is asked to write the history of his experience in his own way uninfluenced by a series of detailed guide questions. The events of the history are then checked by interviews with parents, brothers and sisters, friends, gang associates, school teachers and principals, probation officers, and social workers. Official records are secured and the accounts of delinquencies checked against written reports. Finally, it is realized that it is hazardous to venture generalizations based upon the data in a few case studies. For that reason Mr. Shaw and his associates are now engaged in the task of obtaining a considerable number of life-histories of criminal careers. The comparison and analysis of a sufficiently large collection of these documents ought to throw light upon the validity of their use in the scientific inquiry into human behavior"--Preface.

Emotions and memory by David Rapaport( Book )

2 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today the interest in the relationships between psychoanalytic and experimental findings, as well as in the experimental validation of psychoanalytic propositions, is greater than ever before. This monograph is a summary of the successes and failures of such endeavors. It provides both warnings and hints. The sections of this volume on the theory of emotions, the psychoanalytic theory of memory, and the psychopathology of memory are, in spite of many limitations, still the sole systematic treatment of these fields."

Human neuroanatomy = (formerly Strong and Elwyn's human neuroanatomy) by Malcolm B Carpenter( Book )

2 editions published in 1948 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If these earlier chapters are perhaps more extensive than in most other texts, it is due to the conviction that the book should be complete in itself, and also that a knowledge of these preliminaries is essential for an understanding of the complex machinery of the spinal cord and brain. The second and larger part (Chapter IX-XX) is devoted to the architectonics of the central nervous system and may be regarded as "applied neuroanatomy." Special features of this part are the many fine photographs, both gross and microscopic, of the human brain and spinal cord, the great wealth of anatomical detail, and the discussion of the structural mechanisms in the light of clinical experience. While the individual portions of the nervous system are treated separately, an attempt has been made to achieve organic structural continuity by judicious repetition and overlapping and by constant reference to related topics already familiar to the student from previous chapters. The plan of exposition is substantially the same for each topic. The gross structure and relationships are concisely but thoroughly reviewed with the aid of clear and graphic illustrations. The internal structure is then presented in detail, usually based on a carefully graded series of fine and clearly labeled microphotographs of human material. At each level the student is familiarized with the exact location, extent and relationships of the various structures seen in the section. Finally the anatomical features of each part are reviewed more comprehensively as three-dimensional structural mechanisms, with a full discussion of their connections and clinical significance. We believe that this treatment will make the complicated structural details alive and interesting to the student. The illustrations are not segregated in the back of the book in the form of an atlas but are scattered in the text, in proper relation to the levels studied"--Preface.
