✏Advances of Psychological Science in China Book Summary : The International Journal of Psychology's special issue, Advances of Psychological Science in China, represents a unique perspective on psychology and psychological issues. Psychology in China witnessed dramatic progress during the last several decades after China's Cultural Revolution. Reported in this issue are reviews of research done in China in the fields of developmental psychology, Chinese language and mathematics learning, cognitive neuroscience, biopsychology, and managerial/organizational psychology. As the world's largest developing country, with a unique language and writing system and a fast-developing economy and social system, Chinese psychology is in a unique position to contribute to our understanding of human nature and development. The papers reflect these special characteristics of Chinese society and Chinese psychological research, ranging from long-established areas such as studies of children's mental development and their acquisition of the Chinese language and writing system to rapidly emerging topics such as organizational psychology, biopsychology, and neuroscience. The special issue is published in conjunction with the convening of the 28th International Congress of Psychology, Beijing, China, 2004 and will serve as an introduction to current psychological research in China.

✏Thinking in Psychological Science Book Summary : This book explores the development of ideas in psychology's past. It is the initial volume in a series intended to shape such ideas into a valuable resource for the discipline's future. Scientists, in general, are known to ignore their own history, considering it to be a graveyard of failures. In Thinking in Psychological Science, selected ideas of key figures in the cognitive, comparative, and developmental sides of psychology—Karl Duncker, Karl Biihler, Tamara Dembo, Zing-Young Kuo, C. Lloyd Morgan, Alexander Chamberlain, and Arnold Gesell—are traced, and the social contexts of their ideas are given a collective analysis, focusing on the potential of these ideas for the present state of psychology. Representing the scientist as "hero" has become a necessary component when applying for research monies from governmentally controlled funding agencies. Yet the reality is just the opposite: Science is not just the product of "heroes"; it is the product of many individuals who often search for solutions to basic problems throughout their lifetimes— while only a few arrive at breakthroughs. Still, familiarity with the flow of thought in the efforts to solve the basic problems of humankind is necessary for any understanding of creativity. This book analyzes the processes involved in the search for solutions to major theoretical problems—of development (Kuo, Gesell), action and cognition (Biihler, Bunker, Dembo), and methodology (Morgan). Ultimately, this is an exciting volume that reveals real science in the making. Thinking in Psychological Science will be of interest to students of the social sciences and intellectual history. It is ideal for graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses in psychology, the sociology of science, and cognitive science.

✏Book Title : International Perspectives on Psychological Science Leading themes

✏Release Date : 1994
✏Pages : 206
✏ISBN : 0863772986
✏Available Language : English, Spanish, And French

✏International Perspectives on Psychological Science Leading themes Book Summary : The essays appearing in these two volumes are based on Keynote (Vol. 1) and State-of-the-Art (Vol. 2) Lectures delivered at the XXVth International Congress of Psychology in Brussels, July 1992. The Brussels Congress was the latest in a series of conferences which are organized at regular intervals under the auspices of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS), the main international organization in the field of Scientific Psychology. The first of those meetings took place in Paris in 1889. An important function of the International Congresses is to promote communication between different specializations in psychology. Speakers were therefore asked to present lectures and discussions in their own fields of study, in a way that would be accessible to fellow psychologists active in other fields. State-of-the-Art lecturers were specifically asked to prepare a tutorial review on a topic which, in the view of the Program Committee, had recently given rise to particularly important developments. These contributions are included in Volume Two. Keynote lecturers were left free to address whatever subject they felt was of greatest interest. The chapters in Volume 1 are preceded by the Presidential Address by Mark R. Rosenzweig.
