The "Freakonomics "of math--a math-world superstar unveils the hidden beauty and logic of the world and puts its power in our hands The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In "How Not to Be Wrong," Jordan Ellenberg shows us how terribly limiting this view is: Math isn't confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do--the whole world is shot through with it. Math allows us to see the hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of our world. It's a sci... View more info

ISBN: 0393312143

Condition: USED


Among the topics covered are: Freud's discovery that the human mind can only be studied through a partnership between observer and observed; how clinical evidence is made up of a unique mixture of subjective and objective; an observation on the way issues of identity affect not only individuals but classes of people; and an examination of the links between ego formation and institutions and traditions. Erikson also discusses the origins of ethics and looks at psychiatry as the pragmatic Western version of the universal journey to self-awareness. View more info

Although instances of deliberate skin-cutting are recorded as far back as the old and New Testaments of the Bible the behavior has generally been regarded as a symptom of various mental disorders. With the publication of "Bodies Under Siege," a book described in the New York Times Magazine (July 17, 1997) as "the first to comprehensively explore self-mutilation," Dr. Armando Favazza has pioneered the study of the behavior as significant and meaningful unto itself. Drawing from the latest case studies from clinical psychiatry he broadens our understanding of self-mutilation and body modifica... View more info

When Otto Fenichel died suddenly at age 48, Anna Freud mourned the loss of "his inexhaustible knowledge of psychoanalysis and his inimitable way of organizing and presenting his facts." These qualities shine in his classic text, which has been a beacon to generations of psychoanalysts. Investigating the relationship between biological needs and external influences the tensions and inhibitions that nurture neuroses Fenichel concludes that "neuroses are social diseases," arising from the demands of civilization on the developing organism. For this 50th anniversary edition, distinguished psychoan... View more info

Despite everything that has been written about the brain, a very important part of this vital organ has been overlooked in most books -- until now. "The Other Brain" is the story of glia, which make up approximately 85 percent of the cells in the brain. Long neglected as little more than cerebral packing material ("glia" means glue), glia are sparking a revolution in brain science. Glia are completely different from neurons, the brain cells that we are familiar with. Scientists are discovering that glia have their own communication network, which operates in parallel to the more familiar c... View more info

Healing the Soul in the Age of the Brain: Becoming Conscious in an Unconscious W

Price: $7.00

ISBN: 0670861898

Condition: USED


"It is no exaggeration to say that psychiatry today is in imminent danger of losing its mind altogether", writes Elio Frattaroli, M.D., in this landmark book. What he is talking about is a medical model of the brain that denies the very existence of anything like a soul -- based on big science's delusionary hope that it is actually possible to fix the soul's sickness by taking a pill. Much as we might like one, Frattaroli argues, there is no quick fix for the soul; we yearn for something more than what Prozac can provide.Frattaroli writes with spirit, combining a Renaissance sensibility wit...

On three or four occasions in his career as a psychoanalytic theoretician, Freud changed his mind on fundamental issues. Setting forth in rich detail Freud's new theory of anxiety, Inhibitions, Symptoms and Anxiety (1926) is evidence for one of them. In rethinking his earlier work on the subject, Freud saw several types of anxiety at work in the mind and here argues that anxiety causes repression, rather than the other way around. View more info
