A mind of its own : how your brain distorts and deceives by Cordelia Fine( Book )

28 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,821 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.-Dust jacket
Delusions of gender : how our minds, society, and neurosexism create difference by Cordelia Fine( Book )

29 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,651 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 )

2 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 39 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!

The real science behind sex differences by Cordelia Fine( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sex discrimination is supposedly a distant memory. This title dispels the pseudo-scientific claims about the differences between the sexes. It shows how old myths, dressed up in the scientific finery, help perpetuate the status quo. It reveals the mind's plasticity, and shows the influence of culture on identity
