The rising curve : long-term gains in IQ and related measures ( Book )
16 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 1,018 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For a long time now, intelligence and achievement tests have been cast as the bearers of bad news. In The Bell Curve, R. Herrnstein and C. Murray (see record 1994-98748-000) argued that there are sharp limits on the intelligence of most of the population; they also noted that the test scores of several minority groups have been chronically low. But the trends documented here tell a different story. The authors show that intelligence test scores are going up everywhere in the world; what's more, the Black-White gap in the school achievement of American children has closed substantially in recent years. Authors from the fields of psychology, sociology, psychometrics, and nutrition present and defend different interpretations of these findings. Do the IQ gains reflect genuine gains in intelligence? Are they due to cultural changes, better schools, increased test sophistication, or improved diet and health? Were the government programs established during the "War on Poverty" partly responsible for the school gains of minority children in the 1970s. The final section addresses the issue: Will the different birth rates of different social classes inevitably produce a "dysgenic trend," as Herrnstein and Murray have claimed?

The remembering self : construction and accuracy in the self-narrative ( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book brings a surprisingly wide range of intellectual disciplines to bear on the self-narrative and the self. The same ecological/cognitive approach that successfully organized Ulric Neisser's earlier volume on The Perceived Self now relates ideas from the experimental, developmental, and clinical study of memory to insights from post-modernism and literature. Although autobiographical remembering is an essential way of giving meaning to our lives, the memories we construct are never fully consistent and often simply wrong. In the first chapter, Neisser considers the so-called 'false memory syndrome' in this context; other contributors discuss the effects of amnesia, the development of remembering in childhood, the social construction of memory and its alleged self-servingness, and the contrast between literary and psychological models of the self. Jerome Bruner, Peggy Miller, Alan Baddeley, Kenneth Gergen and Daniel Albright are among the contributors to this unusual synthesis

The conceptual self in context : culture, experience, self-understanding by Ulric Neisser ( Book )
8 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What is the self-concept and how does it develop? Do people in different cultures have sharply different concepts of self? Can we believe what our informants tell us on this point? What is known about the self-concepts of depressives? of schizophrenics? How does meditation affect the sense of self? Is there an inner 'self of selves' as James once suggested? These are, of course, hotly debated questions in the social sciences. In this 1997 book a prestigious group of psychologists, linguists, anthropologists and philosophers addresses these questions and presents some surprising answers. This is the third and last of the Emory Symposia organized around Ulric Neisser's cognitive theory of self-knowledge, it goes beyond The Perceived Self and The Remembering Self to deal with psychological and philosophical questions surrounding the self
