  • Language Structure, Discourse and the Access to Consciousnessby Maxim I. Stamenov

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 108.00

    The focus of this collective volume is on the mutual determination of language structure, discourse patterns and the accessibility to consciousness of mental contents of different types of organization and complexity.

  • Locating Consciousnessby Valerie Gray Hardcastle

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1995; US$ 102.00

    Locating Consciousness argues that our qualitative experiences should be aligned with the activity of a single and distinct memory system in our mind/brain. Spelling out in detail what we do and do not know about phenomenological experience, this book denies the common view of consciousness as a central decision-making system. Instead, consciousness... more...

  • Two Sciences of Mindby Seán Ó Nualláin; Paul Mc Kevitt; Eoghan Mac Aogáin

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1997; US$ 143.00

    The Reaching for Mind workshop, held at AISB ’95, explicitly addressed itself to the current crisis in Cognitive Science. In particular, the issue of how this discipline can address consciousness was a leitmotiv in the workshop. The conclusion seems inescapable that there is a need for two sciences in this area. Cognitive Science can be freed to become... more...

  • The Unconscious as Infinite Setsby Ignacio Matte Blanco

    Karnac Books 1980; US$ 48.99

    A systematic effort to rethink Freud's theory of the unconscious, aiming to separate out the different forms of unconsciousness. The logico-mathematical treatment of the subject is made easy because every concept used is simple and simply explained from first principles. Each renewed explanation of the facts brings the emergence of new knowledge from... more...

    McGraw-Hill Education 2011; US$ 47.00

  • Foundations of Understandingby Natika Newton

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1996; US$ 102.00

    How can symbols have meaning for a subject? Foundations of Understanding argues that this is the key question to ask about intentionality, or meaningful thought. It thus offers an alternative to currently popular linguistic models of intentionality, whose inadequacies are examined: the goal should be to explain, not how symbols, mental or otherwise,... more...

  • Intention und Funktionby Jens Aderhold; Olaf Kranz

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2010; US$ 54.46

    Der Band versammelt Texte, die sich aus unterschiedlichen Perspektiven und anhand verschiedener Gegenstände mit den Fragen beschäftigen, wie Menschen ihr Verhalten an sozialen Systemen orientieren können und welche Bedeutung diesen Orientierungsleistungen für soziale Prozesse beizumessen ist. Renommierte Autoren aus den Bereichen der Soziologie und... more...

  • Trennen und Verbindenby Marco Schmitt

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 48.30

    Gedächtnis ist eine vernachlässigte Kategorie der soziologischen Theoriebildung. Dieser Befund ist zunächst einmal erstaunlich, wenn man sich die Virulenz des Themas in gegenwärtigen Diskussionen um gesellschaftliche Veränderungsprozesse durch neue Medien anschaut. Ziel und Aufgabe dieser Arbeit ist es zu zeigen, dass sich aus system- und netzwerktheoretischen... more...

  • Kognitive Grundlagen sozialen Verhaltensby Jochen Mayerl

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 48.30

    Die Erklärung sozialen Verhaltens nimmt in den Sozialwissenschaften eine zentrale Stellung ein. Als wichtigste Erklärungsansätze gelten einerseits die Einstellungs-Verhaltens-Forschung mit der Unterscheidung eines spontanen und überlegten Informationsverarbeitungsmodus und andererseits Framing-Modelle im Kontext der modernen Rational Choice Theorie.... more...

  • Some NEW Kind of Trailer Trashby Dr. Brad Blanton

    Dr. Brad Blanton, bestselling author of the Radical Honesty book series, is at ease in this first volume of his autobiography Some NEW Kind of Trailer Trash. He is free in telling any tale about himself, including the most intimate, demonstrating the interior security and self-deprecating humor, which it would seem support his international reputation... more...
