    From the master of Freud debunkers, the book that definitively puts an end to the myth of psychoanalysis and its creator Since the 1970s, Sigmund Freud’s scientific reputation has been in an accelerating tailspin—but nonetheless the idea persists that some of his contributions were visionary discoveries of lasting value. Now, drawing on rarely... more...

    Originally published in 1974, the second volume of four (Logical Inference: Underlying Operations) provides a process-model for the solution of certain syllogistic reasoning problems.

  • Logical Abilities in Children: Volume 3by Daniel N. Osherson

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 46.95

    Originally published in 1975, this volume (3 of 4) presents an expanded model of certain deductive abilities in children and adults.

A new methodology is... more...

  • Future Positiveby Edward de Bono

    Ebury Publishing 2017; US$ 18.32

    ‘Of one thing in life we can be sure. The quality of our life in the future will depend on the quality of our thinking.’ Why are we so prone to be negative? And how can we become more positive, both as individuals and as a society? The answer lies in the way we think. The key to positive thinking is developing new concepts, whether this means... more...

  • Validating Psychological Constructsby Kathleen Slaney

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2017; US$ 94.13

    This book critically examines the historical and philosophical foundations of construct validity theory (CVT), and how these have and continue to inform and constrain the conceptualization of validity and its application in research. CVT has had an immense impact on how researchers in the behavioural sciences conceptualize and approach their subject... more...

  • The Non-Reificatory Approach to Beliefby Richard Floyd

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 94.13

    This book argues against the mainstream view that we should treat propositional attitudes as internal states, suggesting that to treat beliefs as things of certain sort (i.e. to reify them) is a mistake. The reificatory view faces several problems that the non-reificatory view avoids, and it is argued the non-reificatory view is more faithful to the... more...

It shows how the constructions of particular methods that... more...
