The Things We Do and Why We Do Them argues against the common assumption that there is one thing called 'action' which all reason-giving explanations of action are geared towards. Sandis shows why all theories concerned with identifying the nature of our 'real' reasons for action fail from the outset.

Can you really tell a criminal by the bumps on his head? What does a memory look like? Can a machine think? Why are some people shy? Is it better not to feel so much? All these questions are central to the study of psychology and have troubled the minds of some of the greatest thinkers in human civilization. The workings of the mind have fascinated mankind for centuries but often the theories are so complex that for many it is almost impossible to have a clear idea of the concepts. In Why We Do the Things We Do, Joel Levy unlocks the important studies and theories in a series of simple questions and answers that shine new and uncomplicated light on the important aspects of psychology, and demystifies the key questions by tracking their origins in the writings of some of the most prominent thinkers in the various fields, showing how these ideas and concepts have developed over time. With each section broken down into the key concepts, issues and arguments, considering how these ideas influence the way we all go about our daily lives, Why We Do the Things We Do will demystify and illuminate this fascinating subject.

Seit kurzem versuchen Hirnforscher, Verhaltenspsychologen und Soziologen gemeinsam neue Antworten auf eine uralte Frage zu finden: Warum tun wir eigentlich, was wir tun? Was genau prägt unsere Gewohnheiten? Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele aus der Forschung wie dem Alltag erzählt Charles Duhigg von der Macht der Routine und kommt dem Mechanismus, aber auch den dunklen Seiten der Gewohnheit auf die Spur. Er erklärt, warum einige Menschen es schaffen, über Nacht mit dem Rauchen aufzuhören (und andere nicht), weshalb das Geheimnis sportlicher Höchstleistung in antrainierten Automatismen liegt und wie sich die Anonymen Alkoholiker die Macht der Gewohnheit zunutze machen. Nicht zuletzt schildert er, wie Konzerne Millionen ausgeben, um unsere Angewohnheiten für ihre Zwecke zu manipulieren. Am Ende wird eines klar: Die Macht von Gewohnheiten prägt unser Leben weit mehr, als wir es ahnen.

A fresh, thought-provoking and wide-ranging study of how mankind uses its hands Why do zombies walk with their arms outstretched? How can newborn babies grip an adult finger tightly enough to dangle unsupported from it? And why is everyone constantly texting, tapping and scrolling? For anyone curious about how human beings work, the answers are hidden in plain sight: in our hands. From early tools to machinery -- from fists to knives to guns -- from papyrus to QWERTY to a swipeable screen -- the history of civilization is a history of what humans do with their hands. We have always kept our hands occupied, and if mankind's story is marked out by profound changes in how we use our hands, it is also marked by underlying patterns that never change. And as much as the things we do with our hands reflect our psychological state, they can also change that state profoundly... Drawing examples from popular culture, art history, psychoanalysis, modern technology and clinical research, Darian Leader presents a unique and fascinating odyssey through the history of what human beings do with their hands - and why.

What is a Self-Destructive Behavior? Any action that we are taking based on the way we think and feel that is slowly eroding our lives. We are literally decaying from the inside out. There is a diseased part of the body that has impaired our normal functioning and it has begun to manifestitself in signs. That impaired part of the body is the mind. Jesus said inMatthew 23:25-26 that we spend all our time cleaning the outside (the symptoms) when it is the inside (cause and conditions) that is destroying us. We are struggling to kill the destructive behavior and wonder why it seems to be gaining strength. We are told that healing begins by desiring change and seeking truth but change is not possible while being consumed with a lie that appears as truth. The key to the change we seek lies in the mind and to fully recover we must change the way we think. It is time to make our willing spirit work on strengthening the body that is weak. The mind is that weakened part of the body which has been influenced by the affairs of the heart. It is time to end the reign of our destructive behaviors by gaining the understanding that what we believe determines howwe will behave.
