Intercorporeality by Christian Meyer


Original Title: Intercorporeality

This book draws inspiration from Maurice Merleau-Ponty's concept of intercorporeality to offer a new, multidisciplinary perspective on the body. By drawing attention to the body's ability to simultaneously sense and be sensed, Merleau-Ponty transcends the object-subject divide and describes how bodies are about, into, and within other bodies. Such inherent relationality constitutes the essence of intercorporeality, and the chapters in this book examine such relationality from a host of diverse perspectives. The book begins with an introductory chapter in which the editors review the current research on bodily interaction, and introduce the notion of intercorporeality as a potentially integrative framework. The first section then offers four chapters devoted to clarifying theoretical and developmental perspectives on intercorporeality. Section 2 contains three chapters that provide insight on intercorporeality from evolutionary, historical, and cross-sectional perspectives. In Section 3, four chapters examine the intercorporeal nature of meaning-making during human interaction. Section 4 then presents three chapters that explore the intercorporeal nature of multi-agent interactions and the role that non-animate bodies (i.e., objects) play in such interaction. Throughout all the chapters, the authors work to integrate research in their specific discipline into the larger, transdisciplinary notion of intercorporeality. This collection provides an indisputably unique perspective on bodies-in-interaction, while simultaneously offering an interdisciplinary way forward in contemporary scholarship on bodies, meaning, and interaction.

Modeling Consciousness Across The Disciplines by J. Scott Jordan


Original Title: Modeling Consciousness Across The Disciplines

Drawing on a variety of scholarly perspectives, this extraordinary volume explores the nature of consciousness and highlights the importance of interdisciplinary dialogue for understanding the many facets of this subject. The contributors to this volume come from diverse fields within science and the humanities, including neuropsychology, art history, rhetoric, philosophy, history, and physical science. While revealing how the perspectives within a discipline guide researchers toward particular conclusions, this volume demonstrates the inherent difficulty in studying consciousness from a single point of view and exposes the conceptual inadequacies that arise when consciousness studies are localized within one discipline. This timely collection breathes life into a topic that has a long history of scholarly interest, providing researchers from diverse backgrounds with much to contemplate.

System Theories And A Priori Aspects Of Perception by J.S. Jordan


Original Title: System Theories And A Priori Aspects Of Perception

This book takes as a starting point, John Dewey's article, The Reflex Arc Concept in Psychology, in which Dewey was calling for, in short, the utilisation of systems theories within psychology, theories of behaviour that capture its nature as a vastly-complex dynamic coordination of nested coordinations. This line of research was neglected as American psychology migrated towards behaviourism, where perception came to be thought of as being both a neural response to an external stimulus and a mediating neural stimulus leading to, or causing a muscular response. As such, perception becomes a question of how it is the perceiver creates neural representations of the physical world. Gestalt psychology, on the other hand, focused on perception itself, utilising the term Phenomenological Field; a term that elegantly nests perception and the organism within their respective, as well as relative, levels of organisation. With the development of servo-mechanisms during the second world war, systems theory began to take on momentum within psychology, and then in the 1970s William T Powers brought the notion of servo-control to perception in his book, Behavior: The Control of Perception. Since then, scientists have come to see nature not as linear chain of contingent cause-effect relationships, but rather, as a non linear, unpredictable nesting of self referential, emergent coordinations, best described as Chaos theory. The implications for perception are astounding, while maintaining the double-aspect nature of perception espoused by the Gestalt psychologists. In short, system theories model perception within the context of a functioning organism, so that objects of experience come to be seen as scale-dependent, psychophysically-neutral, phenomenological transformations of energy structures, the dynamics of which are the result of evolution, and therefore, a priori to the individual case. This a priori, homological unity among brain perception and world is revealed through the use of systems theories and represents the thrust of this book. All the authors are applying some sort of systems theory to the psychology of perception. However, unlike Dewey we have close to a century of technology we can bring to bear upon the issue. This book should be seen as a collection of such efforts.

Dsm 5 Diagnosis In The Schools by Ren‚e M. Tobin


Original Title: Dsm 5 Diagnosis In The Schools

"Efficient and accurate use of the American Psychiatric Association's (2013) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5) has become a necessary part of the professional duties of psychologists in a variety of clinical, rehabilitative, and child service agencies. This book is intended to increase child psychologists' familiarity with DSM-5 and to bolster their confidence in using it within school settings. The present text attempts to provide a broad understanding of the DSM-5 system--what it attempts to do, how it is organized, and how to use it most effectively to capture and communicate the unique features of children's and adolescent's problems"--

Words Matter by Elizabeth Keating


Original Title: Words Matter

In a twenty-first-century global economy, in which multinational companies coordinate and collaborate with partners and clientele around the world, it is usually English that is the parlance of business, research, technology, and finance. Most assume that if parties on both ends of the conference call are fluent English speakers, information will be shared seamlessly and without any misunderstanding. But is that really true? Words Matter examines how communications between transnational partners routinely break down, even when all parties are fluent English speakers. The end result is lost time, lost money, and often discord among those involved. What’s going wrong? Contrary to a common assumption, language is never neutral. Its is heavily influenced by one’s culture and can often result in unintended meanings depending on word choice, a particular phrase, or even one’s inflection. A recent study of corporate managers found that one out of five projects fail primarily because of ineffective transnational communication, resulting in the loss of millions of dollars. In Words Matter, you will venture into the halls of multinational tech companies around the world to study language and culture at work; learn practical steps for harnessing research in communication and anthropology to become more skilled in the digital workplace; and learn to use the “Communication Plus Model,” which can be easily applied in multiple situations, leading to better communication and better business outcomes.
