Culture Of Honor the Psychology Of Violence In The South by Richard E Nisbett( file )

In this brilliantly argued book, the authors explore the reasons behind the higher rate for homicides among whites in the southern United States. They discover that it isn't socioeconomic class, population density, the legacy of slavery, or the heat of the South; it is the traditional "culture of honor"--In which a man's reputation is seen as central to his economic survival--that makes the difference

The person and the situation : perspectives of social psychology by Lee Ross( Book )
16 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 793 libraries worldwide
A new edition of the classic 1991 social psychology text, with a new foreword by Malcolm Gladwell. How does the situation we're in influence the way we behave and think? Professors Ross and Nisbett eloquently argue that the context we find ourselves in substantially affects our behavior. The Person and the Situation explores the complex ideas about personal versus situational determinants of behavior and relates the lessons of our discipline to important political, social, and even philosophical issues. This its the type of book that we have long wished we had available to assign to the serious, critical student who asks, What have we really learned from social psychology? "We offer this book as a kind of throwback to a golden age and as a tribute to our intellectual forebears. We offer it as a 'stand tall and be proud' pep talk for our colleagues in general and for our younger colleagues in particular. We offer it as an olive branch and invitation to more fruitful intellectual dialogue with our friends in personality research (and also to our friends in anthropology and sociology who cluck, with some justification, about our parochialism). We offer it as a slim guide for non-psychologists to the heart and muscle of our enterprise. And last, but not least, we offer it as an invitation to honor the great tradition of Kurt Lewin that links basic theory first to the analysis of socially significant real-world phenomena and ultimately to the task of effective social innovation." Lee Ross & Richard Nisbett With a new foreword by Malcolm Gladwell, and a new afterword by the authors, this timely reissue of one of social psychology's classic texts is essential reading for anyone with an interest in human behavior

Rules for reasoning by Richard E Nisbett( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 363 libraries worldwide
This book examines two questions: Do people make use of abstract rules such as logical and statistical rules when making inferences in everyday life? Can such abstract rules be changed by training? Contrary to the spirit of reductionist theories from behaviorism to connectionism, there is ample evidence that people do make use of abstract rules of inference -- including rules of logic, statistics, causal deduction, and cost-benefit analysis. Such rules, moreover, are easily alterable by instruction as it occurs in classrooms and in brief laboratory training sessions. The fact that purely forma

East and West ( visu )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
"Through careful studies conducted in the U.S., U.K. and East Asia, researchers came to the surprising conclusion that in many aspects, people from the 'East' and people from the 'West' think in diametrically opposite ways. Scientists determined that cultural differences trump theories that the brain's thought processes operate in much the same manner for all people. As cultures and economies become more interwoven, it is increasingly important to understand these differences and how they might affect communication and negotiations in both social and business settings."--Container
