A mind of its own : how your brain distorts and deceives by Cordelia Fine ( Book )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 1,773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Exposing the mind's deceptions and exploring how the mind defends and glorifies the ego, [the author] illustrates the brain's tendency toward self-delusion. Unbeknownst to us, our brain - vain, emotional, immoral, deluded, pigheaded, secretive, weak-willed, and bigoted - pushes, pulls, twists, and warps our perceptions. Whether it be hindsight bias, wishful thinking, unrealistic optimism, or moral excuse-making, each of us has a slew of mind-bugs and ordinary prejudices that prevent us from seeing the truth about the world, the people around us, and ourselves
Delusions of gender : how our minds, society, and neurosexism create difference by Cordelia Fine ( Book )
12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, Cordelia Fine debunks the myth of hardwired differences between men's and women's brains, unraveling the evidence behind such claims as men's brains aren't wired for empathy and women's brains aren't made to fix cars. She then goes one step further, offering a very different explanation of the dissimilarities between men's and women's behavior. Instead of a "male brain" and a "female brain," Fine gives us a glimpse of plastic, mutable minds that are continuously influenced by cultural assumptions about gender.--From publisher description

Die Geschlechterlüge : die Macht der Vorurteile über Frau und Mann by Cordelia Fine ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frauen können nicht einparken und Männer nicht zuhören. Diese Überzeugung gehört wie viele weitere zu unserem Alltag. Die Neurowissenschaftlerin Cordelia Fine räumt unterhaltsam und scharfsinnig mit diesem Mythos auf. Vergessen Sie alles, was sie je über männliche und weibliche Gehirne gehört haben. Viele bekannte populärwissenschaftliche Bestseller behaupten auf der Basis neurowissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen: Männer und Frauen haben unterschiedliche Gehirne und daher unterschiedliche Begabungen. Vermeintliche natürliche Unterschiede werden aufgebaut und dienen als Erklärung für gesellschaftliche Rollenstereotype. Cordelia Fine entlarvt, wie unter dem Deckmantel der Wissenschaft schlampige Untersuchungen, oberflächlich gedeutete Forschung und vage Beweise zu angeblichen Tatsachen gemacht wurden. Sie zeigt, wie unser Leben als Mann und Frau stark von geschlechtertypischen Erwartungen und Vorurteilen beeinflusst wird, selbst wenn wir sie nicht gut heißen. Und welch subtile Macht Stereotype ausüben können. Das Einzige, was wissenschaftlich bewiesen ist: Es gibt eine neuronale Plastizität. Unser Gehirn entwickelt sich vor allem durch psychologische Einflüsse, Erfahrungen und Tätigkeiten. Und für Männer und Frauen gilt: Alles ist möglich!
