The Lucifer effect : understanding how good people turn evil by Philip G Zimbardo( Book )
28 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 2,866 libraries worldwide
What makes good people do bad things? Where is the line separating good from evil, and who is in danger of crossing it? Social psychologist Philip Zimbardo explains how--and the myriad reasons why--we are all susceptible to the lure of "the dark side." Drawing on examples from history as well as his own research, Zimbardo details how situational forces and group dynamics can work in concert to make monsters out of decent people. By illuminating the psychological causes behind such disturbing metamorphoses, Zimbardo enables us to better understand a variety of phenomena, from corporate malfeasance to organized genocide. He replaces the long-held notion of the "bad apple" with that of the "bad barrel"--The idea that the social setting and the system contaminate the individual, rather than the other way around. Yet we are capable of resisting evil, he argues, and can even teach ourselves to act heroically.--From publisher description
Psychology and life by Floyd Leon Ruch( Book )
158 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,781 libraries worldwide
"The aim of Psychology and life is to use solid scientific research to combat psychological misconceptions. In our experience as teachers, one of the most reliable occurrences on the first day of introductory psychology is the throng of students who push forward at the end of class to ask, in essence, Will this class teach me what I need to know? My mother is taking Prozac: Will we learn what it does? Are you going to teach us how to study better? I need to put my son in daycare to come back to school. Is that going to be all right for him? What should I do if I have a friend talking about suicide? We take comfort that each of these questions has been addressed by rigorous empirical research. Psychology and life is devoted to providing students with scientific analyses of their foremost concerns. As a result, the features of Psychology and life support a central theme: psychology as a science, with a focus on applying that science to your students' lives."--Provided by publisher
