Concern about psychology’s fragmentation is not new, but there has for the past decade been increasing calls for psychologists to acknowledge to the costs associated with fragmentation and to search for ways to unify the discipline. A New Unified Theory of Psychology introduces a new system that addresses psychology’s current theoretical and philosophical difficulties. The new theory consists of four interlocking pieces that together provide—for the first time—a macro-level view that clarifies the nature of psychology’s problems and offers a clear way to unify the various elements of the field. The unified theory provides the field of psychology with a well-defined subject matter, allowing both academic and professional psychologists will be able to develop a shared language and conceptual foundation.

Jeder kennt eines Man begegnet ihnen überall: im Job, in der Schule, im Freundeskreis, in der Politik, in Geschichtsbüchern, im Fernsehen oder im Straßenverkehr. Mitunter sogar in der Familie. Man könnte sie auch als Mistkerle, Tyrannen, Wichtigtuer, Intriganten oder Egomanen beschimpfen. Arschlöcher sind eine Zumutung. Doch was genau macht ein Arschloch aus? Warum sind es oft Männer? Weshalb bringen manche Länder mehr Arschlöcher hervor als andere? Ist der Kapitalismus schuld? Oder ist es eine Frage des Charakters? Und können wir uns überhaupt wohl fühlen in einer Gesellschaft, wo Arschlöcher sprießen wie Unkraut? Aaron James beschäftigen diese und weitere Fragen. Seine Theorie ist so intelligent wie unterhaltsam und enthält darüber hinaus eine nützliche Gebrauchsanleitung für den Umgang mit A*.

It is argued in this book that there are three major approaches to anxiety. First, there is anxiety as an emotional state. Second, there is trait anxiety as a dimension of personality. Third, there is anxiety as a set of anxiety disorders. What is attempted is to produce a unified theory of anxiety which integrates all these major approaches. According to this unified theory, there are four sources of information which influence the level of experienced anxiety: (1) experimental stimulation; (2) internal physiological activity; (3) internal cognitions, (e.g., worries); and (4) one's own behaviour. The unified theory is essentially based on a cognitive approach. More specifically, it is assumed that individual differences in experienced anxiety between those high and low in trait anxiety depend largely on cognitive biases. It is also assumed that the various anxiety disorders depend on cognitive biases, and that the main anxiety disorders differ in terms of the source of information most affected by such biases (e.g., social phobics have biased interpretation of their own behaviour). In sum, this book presents a general theory of anxiety from the cognitive perspective. It is intended that this theory will influence theory and research on emotion, personality, and the anxiety disorders.

Psychology is now ready for unified theories of cognition--so says Allen Newell, a leading investigator in computer science and cognitive psychology. Not everyone will agree on a single set of mechanisms that will explain the full range of human cognition, but such theories are within reach and we should strive to articulate them. In this book, Newell makes the case for unified theories by setting forth a candidate. After reviewing the foundational concepts of cognitive science--knowledge, representation, computation, symbols, architecture, intelligence, and search--Newell introduces Soar, an architecture for general cognition. A pioneer system in artificial intelligence, Soar is the first problem solver to create its own subgoals and learn continuously from its own experience. Newell shows how Soar's ability to operate within the real-time constraints of intelligent behavior, such as immediate-response and item-recognition tasks, illustrates important characteristics of the human cognitive structure. Throughout, Soar remains an exemplar: we know only enough to work toward a fully developed theory of cognition, but Soar's success so far establishes the viability of the enterprise. Given its integrative approach, Unified Theories of Cognition will be of tremendous interest to researchers in a variety of fields, including cognitive science, artificial intelligence, psychology, and computer science. This exploration of the nature of mind, one of the great problems of philosophy, should also transcend disciplines and attract a large scientific audience.

Towards a Unified Theory of Mind explores the development of the mind across the lifespan of a human being. Psychologist Dr. Lawrence Dugan introduces a Unified Theory of the Mind that parallels Newton's Unified Theory of Force and Einstein's Unified Theory of Energy. Dugan's experiences in evaluating thousands of people and providing psychoanalytic psychotherapy for hundreds more inform this invaluable reference as it reveals the correlation between the development of the human mind and embryologic-fetal development and the development of the human brain. Dr. Lawrence Dugan has worked as a psychologist for over 40 years. His published books include A Couple's Cookbook for Communicating, Overcoming Dyslexia and How to Talk to Yourself to Become the Person You Strive to Be. His next book, which analyzes the personality types of children using an Eriksonian model of development, is in progress.

One of the most active fields of educational research in recent years has been the investigation of problem-solving performance. Two opposing views of current research -- one suggesting that there are more differences than similarities within different domains, and the other stating that there is great similarity -- lead to a variety of questions: * Is problem solving a single construct? * Are there aspects of problem-solving performance that are similar across a variety of content domains? * What problem-solving skills learned within one context can be expected to transfer to other domains? The purpose of this book is to serve as the basis for the productive exchange of information that will help to answer these questions -- by drawing together preliminary theoretical understandings, sparking debate and disagreement, raising new questions and directions, and perhaps developing new world views.

In this capstone work, Arthur Staats synthesizes more than four decades of research, theory, and study into a new generation of behaviorism that offers insights and future directions for researchers, professionals, and students. Staats's unified theory of psychological behaviorism builds on current theories in child development, personality, psychological measurement, and abnormal behavior. His theoretical model provides new ways to consider human behavior as a whole that will have implications for research, theory, and practice.
