Critical Social Psychology An Introduction

Social Psychology of Social Problems The Intergroup Context

2nd edition

Brendan Gough, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK, Majella McFadden, Sheffield Hallam University, UK and Matthew McDonald, Assumption University, Thailand ‘What a clear, comprehensive, and authoritative introduction to the important critical perspectives on social psychology!

Critical Social Psychology introduces students, in a straightforward, practical and accessible way, to the key themes and debates arising from this fast-growing - and often complex - field.

Passer approaches Critical Thinking throughout the textbook in a number of ways, including “Thinking Critically and Applying Your Knowledge” questions at the end of each chapter to help your students apply what they have learnt. In addition, statistics is covered in a series of modules at the back of the book.

Sensation and Perception

Sensorimotor Control and Learning

Steven Yantis, Johns Hopkins University, USA

An Introduction to the Behavioral Neuroscience of Action

Worth Publishers - A Macmillan Higher Education Company

James Tresilian, University of Warwick, UK ‘James Tresilian has written the most detailed, comprehensive text in 1.1.5 REPETITIONS OF THE SAME ACTION DO NOT NECESSARILY INVOLVE REPEATING THE SAME MOVEMENTS OR FORCES motor control and learning – a must for those in the field.’ - Jane Clark, Kinesiology Department, University of Maryland, USA It may sometimes seem that repetitions of a particular action are performed in exactly the same way: the outcome is achieved in the same way, so the concept of motor equivalence is not needed. However, subjective impressions of this sort are misleading; it is always the case that different performances in a sequence of repetitions differ from one another, even though the differences may sometimes be quite small. This was recognized early in the study of human motor behavior, as illustrated by the following quotation, dating from 1932:

‘A valuable new addition in a field where up-to-date and comprehensive texts suitable for the newcomer are few and far between.’ - Kielan Yarrow, Department of Psychology, City University London, UK Suppose I am making a stroke in a quick game, such as tennis or cricket … When I make the stroke I do not, as a matter of fact, produce something absolutely new, and I never merely repeat something old … I may think that I reproduce exactly a series of textbook movements, but demonstrably I do not.xii

Sensorimotor Control and Learning is a landmark book in the growing multidisciplinary area of human movement science that integrates findings from neuroscience, kinesiology and psychology to present a state-of-the-art account of how humans carry out goal-directed actions. One of the earliest empirical studies of this phenomenon was conducted in the 1920s by the Russian physiologist Nicolai Bernstein, and examined repetitive hammering of a chisel by highly skilled blacksmiths.xiii Figure 1.2 shows three consecutive frames of someone hammering; the swing of the hammer involves movement about the shoulder, elbow, and wrist joints. Bernstein found that the trajectory of the hammerhead was fairly consistent from one swing to the next, and led to error-free striking of the chisel. However, movements about the individual joints were much less consistent: different strikes in the sequence of repetitions involved different arm movements. Thus, there was motor equivalence: the same outcome (hammer-head trajectory and striking the chisel) was achieved using (slightly) different movements of the limb segments each time.

The textbook features over 600 high-quality illustrations, which are also available online for lecturers. Frame 1

‘This is a clearly written text that does an excellent job of presenting classic topics in the field of Sensation and Perception in the context of current research methodology and findings. The real-life examples and simple demonstrations that are provided throughout the chapter should help students understand difficult concepts.’ - Sandra McFadden, Western Illinois University, USA This textbook integrates classic and current research, highlighting defining principles and experiments of this field. Outstanding art and interactive visual demonstrations complete this engaging text.

A natural question to ask is: how can the same movement of the hammerhead be achieved if the movements of the limbs segments are all different? It is difficult to provide a complete answer at this point, so we will consider a simpler example that illustrates the basic idea. Imagine a task in which a person is required to press on a pad with the index and middle fingers of their right hand so as to produce a target force level of 30 Newtons (Figure 1.3, panel A).xiv The person could produce 30 Newtons by pressing with a force of 10 Newtons with the index finger and 20 Newtons with the middle finger, or using any other combination that adds up to 30. This is represented graphically in panel B of Figure 1.3. The force exerted by the index finger is plotted on the vertical axis and the force exerted by the middle finger on the

Anomalistic Psychology Exploring Paranormal Belief and Experience

Charles Darwin The Shaping of Evolutionary Thinking Lance Workman, Visiting Professor, University of Wales, UK

Christopher C. French, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK and Anna Stone, University of East London, UK ‘A balanced, authoritative, and reader-friendly guide about unusual but poorly understood psychological phenomena. There is nothing quite like it in the field.’ - Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Saybrook University, USA, and co-author, Demystifying Shamans and their World

This book examines the history of thought surrounding the relationship between Darwinism and the behavioural sciences. Accessible and thought-provoking, it demonstrates how and why Darwinism remains both illuminating and controversial today.

‘Lots of people believe they have had strange experiences, such as alien abduction or seeing heaven when near death. French and Stone, in this meticulously researched and beautifully written book, help us understand why. Anomalistic Psychology is a masterful, one-of-akind book that will interest anyone who cares about the sometimes seemingly bizarre workings of the human mind.’ - Elizabeth F. Loftus, Distinguished Professor, University of California, Irvine, USA ‘I think that students will find it an engaging and thoughtful book, and because it contains relevant examples drawn from current cultural topics, they will find it accessible and entertaining.’ - Nick Neave, Northumbria University, UK From alien encounters to visions of ghosts, this introduction to anomalistic psychology explores the fascinating area of the psychology of belief in paranormal phenomena.

Studies in the Psychosocial

Psychosocial Studies seeks to investigate the ways in which psychic and social processes demand to be understood as always implicated in each other, as mutually constitutive, co-produced, or abstracted levels of a single dialectical process. As such it can be understood as an interdisciplinary field in search of transdisciplinary objects of knowledge. Psychosocial Studies is also distinguished by its emphasis on affect, the irrational and unconscious processes, often, but not necessarily, understood psychoanalytically. Studies in the Psychosocial aims to foster the development of this field by publishing high quality and innovative monographs and edited collections. The series welcomes submissions from a range of theoretical perspectives and disciplinary orientations, including sociology, social and critical psychology, political science, postcolonial studies, feminist studies, queer studies, management and organization studies, cultural and media studies and psychoanalysis. However, in keeping with the inter- or transdisciplinary character of psychosocial analysis, books in the series will generally pass beyond their points of origin to generate concepts, understandings and forms of investigation that are distinctively psychosocial in character.
