Learning theory and behavior by Orval Hobart Mowrer( Book )

40 editions published between 1960 and 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this book is to achieve a high level of synthesis regarding learning theory and behavior. The author attempts to do so by examining both research and conjecture in a broadly historical context, in addition to presenting new experimental findings not available to earlier system makers and theorists. In this way, it is believed, empirical facts and divergent theories become maximally meaningful and most significantly related. The book begins with an introductory chapter that presents a historical review and perspective of the field of learning theory. Chapter 2 examines the law of effect, conditioning, and punishment. Chapter 3 discusses two versions of two-factor learning theory. In the fourth chapter, two conceptions of secondary reinforcement are presented. Chapters 5 and 6 continue the examination of secondary reinforcement with discussions of a unifying theory and reservations and complications. The topics of Chapter 7 are a revised two-factor theory and the concept of habit, followed by Chapter 8 which comparatively examines other theories and some further evidence. Hope, fear, and field theory are the focus of Chapter 9, and Chapter 10 focuses on reinforcement gradients and temporal integration. The book closes with two chapters on unlearning, conflict, frustration, courage, generalization, discrimination, and skill. The basic argument proposed by the author is epitomized in Chapter 7. Earlier chapters provide the logical and factual background from which this argument evolves; and the five subsequent chapters amplify and apply the argument in more specific ways. Thus, the reader who wishes a quick "look" at this volume as a whole may first read the chapter indicated; but the argument will unfold most naturally and persuasively if the chapters are read in the order in which they appear.--(Created by APA)
Frustration and aggression by John Dollard( Book )

24 editions published between 1939 and 1967 in 3 languages and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the preparation of this book two aspects of the work of the Institute of Human Relations are illustrated. The first is that of cooperative research. The second aspect which this book illustrates is that of following a procedure of inquiry which is well known but seldom used in the social sciences. The problem of aggressive behavior is here advanced one step along this road which all social inquiry that aspires to become truly scientific must eventually follow. This step has consisted partly in a more systematic formulation and further elaboration of the Frustration-Aggression hypothesis which had already been stated by Freud and others, and partly in bringing together a larger body of relevant illustrative material. It is therefore in the nature of a second approximation looking toward a scientific theory of aggressive behavior. It is published in its present tentative form in the hope that it will stimulate further inquiry not only at the Institute but elsewhere. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

The quest for community; a study in the ethics of order and freedom by Robert A Nisbet( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the leading thinkers to emerge in the postwar conservative intellectual revival was the sociologist Robert Nisbet. His book The Quest for Community , published in 1953, stands as one of the most persuasive accounts of the dilemmas confronting modern society. Nearly a half century before Robert Putnam documented the atomization of society in Bowling Alone , Nisbet argued that the rise of the powerful modern state had eroded the sources of community—the family, the neighborhood, the church, the guild. Alienation and loneliness inevitably resulted. But as the traditional ties that bind fell away, the human impulse toward community led people to turn even more to the government itself, allowing statism—even totalitarianism—to flourish. ISI Books is proud to present this new edition of Nisbet’s magnum opus, featuring a brilliant introduction by New York Times columnist Ross Douthat and three critical essays. Published at a time when our communal life has only grown weaker and when many Americans display cultish enthusiasm for a charismatic president, this new edition of The Quest for Community shows that Nisbet’s insights are as relevant today as ever

Personality-shaping through positive disintegration by Kazimierz Dąbrowski( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For psychologist and psychiatrist Kazimierz Dabrowski, personality is not a given - it must be consciously created and developed by the individual. In his second English-language book, Personality-Shaping Through Positive Disintegration, first published in 1967, Dr. Dabrowski presents a comprehensive treatment of personality that is still relevant, perhaps more so today than when it was first written. Here Dabrowski describes personality's individual and universal characteristics, the methods involved in shaping it, and case studies of famous personalities (including Augustine and Michelangelo) demonstrating the empirical and normative nature of personality development. Included in this edition are the original introduction, written by former APA president O. Hobart Mowrer, an appendix detailing a study on gifted children and outstanding abilities conducted by Dr. Dabrowski, as well as previously unpublished biographical pieces analyzing the personalities of Beethoven, Kierkegaard, and Unamuno
