Some Psychology Books in the PAC Library

Nietschze and Depth

  • "Exploring the connections between Nietzsche's thought and depth psychology, this book sheds new light on the relation between psychology and philosophy. It examines the status and function of Nietzsche's psychological insights within the framework of his thought; explores the formative impact of Nietzsche's "new psychology" on Freud, Adler, Jung, and other major psychoanalysts; and adopts Nietzsche's original psychological insights on the figure and biography of Nietzsche himself."--Jacket.

Evolutionary Psychology 101

"This is a concise and student-friendly survey of the burgeoning field of evolutionary psychology (EP) and the controversies that surround it. Evolutionary psychology is an approach to studying human behavior that is rooted in modern evolutionary theory. Firmly grounded in the theoretical and research literature of EP, the book addresses the core theories, approaches, applications, and current findings that comprise this discipline. It is unique in its interdisciplinary focus, which encompasses EP's impact on both psychological and non-psychological disciplines."

Cognitive Psychology

Cognitive processes enable us to experience the world around us: to recognize a friendly face in a crowd, to communicate our passions, to recall memories from the past. When these processes stop working, it can turn friends into strangers, render speech impossible, and make history a confusion of truth and lies. This book unravels these complex ideas, introducing the concepts behind them and looking at how techniques, such as neuro-imaging, can provide answers to questions that may at first seem unanswerable.
