How Do You Feel?

by A. D. Bud Craig

How Do You Feel? brings together startling evidence from neuroscience, psychology, and psychiatry to present revolutionary new insights into how our brains enable us to experience the range of sensations and mental states known as feelings. Drawing on his own cutting-edge research, neurobiologist Bud Craig has identified an area deep inside the mammalian brain--the insular cortex--as the place where interoception, or the processing of bodily stimuli, generates feelings. He shows how this crucial pathway for interoceptive awareness gives rise in humans to the feeling of being alive, vivid perceptual feelings, and a subjective image of the sentient self across time. Craig explains how feelings represent activity patterns in our brains that signify emotions, intentions, and thoughts, and how integration of these patterns is driven by the unique energy needs of the hominid brain. He describes the essential role of feelings and the insular cortex in such diverse realms as music, fluid intelligence, and bivalent emotions, and relates these ideas to the philosophy of William James and even to feelings in dogs.How Do You Feel? is also a compelling insider's account of scientific discovery, one that takes readers behind the scenes as the astonishing answer to this neurological puzzle is pursued and pieced together from seemingly unrelated fields of scientific inquiry. This book will fundamentally alter the way that neuroscientists and psychologists categorize sensations and understand the origins and significance of human feelings.

The Study of Behavior: Organization, Methods, and Principles

by Jerry A. Hogan

Behavior studies now span a variety of sub-disciplines, including behavioral ecology, neuroscience, cognitive psychology and evolutionary developmental biology. While the fields' rapid growth has led to startling new insights into animal behavior, it has brought increasingly fragmented approaches to the subject. Integrating ideas and findings from a range of disciplines, this book provides a common framework for understanding diverse issues in behavior studies. The framework is derived from classical ethology, incorporating concepts and data from research in experimental psychology, neurophysiology and evolutionary biology. Hogan outlines the origin and development of major ideas and issues in the field, drawing on examples throughout to highlight connections across sub-disciplines. Demonstrating how results in one area can directly inform work in others, the book ultimately proposes concepts to facilitate new discussions that will open the way for improved dialog between researchers across behavior studies.

Analysis of the Incest Trauma: Retrieval, Recovery, Renewal

by Susan A. Klett

Childhood sexual abuse within the family of origin and society's institutions, such as the church, education, sports, and the world of celebrity, has been neglected as a significant issue by psychoanalysis and society. The incest trauma needs to be understood as one of the most significant problems of contemporary society. This book is an attempt to re-establish incest trauma as a significant psychological disorder by tracing the evolutionary trajectory of psychoanalysis from the Seduction Theory to the Oedipal Therapy to the Confusion of Tongues Theory. By examining the theoretical, emotional, interpersonal, and political issues involved in Freud's abandoning the Seduction Hypothesis and replacing it with the Oedipal Complex, we can see how system building became more important than the emotional welfare of children. In a series of chapters the authors demonstrate this neglect of the incest trauma.

Jokes and the Linguistic Mind

by Debra Aarons

Through the lens of cognitive science, Jokes and the Linguistic Mind investigates jokes that play on some aspect of the structure and function of language. In so doing, Debra Aarons shows that these 'linguistic jokes' can evoke our tacit knowledge of the language we use. Analyzing hilarious examples from movies, plays and books, Jokes and the Linguistic Mind demonstrates that tacit linguistic knowledge must become conscious for linguistic jokes to be understood. The book examines jokes that exploit pragmatic, semantic, morphological, phonological and semantic features of language, as well as jokes that use more than one language and jokes that are about language itself. Additionally, the text explores the relationship between cryptic crossword clues and linguistic jokes in order to demonstrate the difference between tacit knowledge of language and rules of language use that are articulated for a particular purpose. With its use of jokes as data and its highly accessible explanations of complex linguistic concepts, this book is an engaging supplementary text for introductory courses in linguistics, psycholinguistics and cognitive science. It will also be of interest to scholars in translation studies, applied linguistics and philosophy of language.

Prayers for Bobby: A Mother's Coming to Terms with the Suicide of Her Gay Son

by Leroy Aarons

Bobby Griffith was an all-American boy ...and he was gay. Faced with an irresolvable conflict--for both his family and his religion taught him that being gay was "wrong"--Bobby chose to take his own life. Prayers for Bobby, nominated for a 1996 Lambda Literary Award, is the story of the emotional journey that led Bobby to this tragic conclusion. But it is also the story of Bobby's mother, a fearful church goer who first prayed that her son would be "healed," then anguished over his suicide, and ultimately transformed herself into a national crusader for gay and lesbian youth. As told through Bobby's poignant journal entries and his mother's reminiscences, Prayers for Bobby is at once a moving personal story, a true profile in courage, and a call to arms to parents everywhere.

DE FELICIDAD TAMBIEN SE VIVE (EBOOK)

by Jose Eduardo Abadi

De qué se trata la felicidad? Existe? Llega de un modo azaroso, o es posterior a una búsqueda y a un trabajo acorde? Existe una felicidad posible para todos los seres humanos? José Eduardo Abadi, reconocido médico psicoanalista, asume el desafío de repensar el concepto de felicidad despojándose por completo de fórmulas simplificadoras. Abadi propone el "ser feliz" como la combinación armónica entre lo que se siente, lo que se piensa y lo que se hace. Si nos planteamos metas alcanzables, renunciamos al goce del sufrimiento y relegamos las fantasías que nos llevan a callejones sin salida, la felicidad es posible. Y no se trata, por ello, de una felicidad mediocre, sino de un intento de coherencia interior entre nuestros anhelos y la realidad. Estamos pensando la felicidad humana, ligada a nuestra condición de sujetos mortales, incompletos y en conflicto. Si esto queda anulado, se juegan engañosamente objetivos inalcanzables. Por otro lado, no podemos pensar la felicidad como un concepto aislado. Es importante articular lo individual con la relación con el otro, con la sexualidad, la pareja, la imaginación, la amistad y la sorpresa. Abadi nos acerca formulaciones sobre la felicidad que han realizado pensadores significativos en la historia del conocimiento. Veremos allí los puntos de coincidencia y disenso entre ellos y, sobre todo, qué lugar ocupan muchas de esas formulaciones en nuestro presente. De felicidad también se vive reabre un diálogo preexistente pero a veces dejado de lado en la sociedad: el camino hacia la búsqueda de la felicidad. Se trata de un libro necesario, inteligente y riguroso, como sólo un pensador de la talla de José Eduardo Abadi podría escribir.
