A resource and annotated bibliography which traces the lineage and evolution of the concept of time in psychology from ancient to pre--modern and modern periods with an emphasis on a traditionalist and experimental/empirical approach to the understanding of psychological time. The book describes various physical, philosophical, and psychological theories and definitions of time, and focuses on the methodological concerns of psychologists regarding the scientific investigation of time. In addition to over 1,000 citations and references, this resource contains over 900 current annotated entries. It contains both name and subject indexes and will be of interest to students and faculty in psychology, related fields of study, and academic and selected public libraries.
Using easy-to-follow graphics and artworks, succinct quotations, and thoroughly accessible text, The Psychology Book makes abstract concepts concrete.
The Psychology Book includes innovative ideas from ancient and medieval thinkers ranging from Galen and René Descartes to the leaders of psychotherapy, such as Sigmund Freud and Abraham Maslow. The voices that continue to shape modern psychology, from Nico Fridja to David Rosenhan, are also included, giving anyone with an interest in psychology an essential resource to psychological thinking and history.
Annotated citations in the bibliography cover the period from 1960 to 2003. Name and subject indexes are provided. Subjects covered include the relationships between imagery and creativity, imagery and personality or gender, and imagery and sports.
