Networks of Mind Learning Culture Neuroscience Book Excerpt:

This ground breaking book is unique in bringing together two perspectives on learning - sociocultural theory and neuroscience. Drawing on both perspectives, it foregrounds important developments in our understanding of what learning is, where and how learning occurs and what we can do to understand learning as an everyday process. Leading experts from both disciplines demonstrate how sociocultural ideas (such as the relevance of experience, opportunity to learn, environment, personal histories, meaning, participation, memory, and feelings of belonging) align with and reflect upon new understandings emerging from neuroscience concerning plasticity and neural networks. Among the themes critically examined are the following: Mind and brain Culture Ability and talent Success and failure Memory Language Emotion Aimed at and accessible to a broad audience and drawing on both schools of thought, Networks of Mind employs case studies, vignettes and real life examples to demonstrate that, though the language of sociocultural theory and that of neuroscience appear very different, ultimately the concepts of both perspectives align and converge around some key ideas. The book shows where both perspectives overlap, collide and diverge in their assumptions and understanding of fundamental aspects of human flourishing. It shows how neuroscience confirms some of the key messages already well established by sociocultural theory, specifically the importance of opportunity to learn. It also argues that the ascendency of neuroscience may result in the marginalization of sociocultural science, though the latter, it argues, has enormous explanatory power for understanding and promoting learning, and for understanding how learning is afforded and constrained.

The ADHD Empowerment Guide Book Excerpt:

Rated one of the "Best ADHD Books of All Time" by Book Authority The ADHD Empowerment Guide is different from other parenting ADHD books because it helps parents identify and build upon their child's strengths and natural talents in order to develop a specific plan to unlock their child's potential. Parents are invited to complete two easy-to-follow questionnaires to identify their child's natural abilities, as well as determine key characteristics in their child that research has shown to help children with ADHD succeed in life. These characteristics include emotional control, integrity, grit, resiliency, resourcefulness, organization, motivation, school fit, support systems, and productive use of technology. Using the practical strategies presented, strength-building activities, and the information learned from the questionnaires, parents can develop a success plan that will unlock their child's potential and build a positive outlook on the journey of raising a child with ADHD. The authors, two professionals who have “been there and done that” with their own children with ADHD, illustrate their strategies and content by highlighting successful people with ADHD who excelled in various areas and share some of their success secrets to raising a successful child with ADHD.

Love of Shopping is Not a Gene Book Excerpt:

At the beginning of the 21st century, genes are used to explain almost every aspect of human life, from social inequalities to health, sexuality and criminality. Although few people have studied genetics, our culture is full of casual references to them. The Darwinian, if asked to comment on our evident 'love of shopping,' would declare it to be in our genes. As former hunters and gatherers, they would say, there is no qualitative difference between gathering fruits and shopping for food, clothes, housewares or knickknacks. One can read not only about the “shopping gene,” but also about the “reading gene,” the “humility gene” and the “coaching gene.” Pop science, fostered by Darwinian psychology, run amok. This book is a critique of Darwinian psychology—alias evolutionary psychology, alias sociobiology—the study of the social behavior of animals and people based on evolution. In this provocative work, Anne Innis Dagg, an eminent and outspoken critic of this ideology, first presents an overview of the theory and its popularity both among professionals and lay people, then she examines concepts of social behavior—based on “genes vs. culture”—-including: aggression in the form of rape, infanticide, homicide, gang violence and war, and general criminality; homosexuality in both the human and the animal world; and race, IQ and environment. Focusing on the problems present in much Darwinian psychological research—flawed data, faulty analysis, and political motives—this controversial book offers the first comprehensible critique of the most popular scientific theory of the late 20th century. Anne Innis Dagg has an M.A. in Genetics and a Ph.D. in animal behavior. She is the author of numerous books, including The Camel: Its Ecology, Behavior and Relationship with Man, and The Feminine Gaze: A Compendium of Nonfiction Women Authors and Their Books. She is currently academic director of independent studies at the University of Waterloo in Ontario.

Psychology in Crisis Book Excerpt:

Throughout the history of psychology, attempting to objectively measure the highly dynamic phenomenon of human behaviour has given rise to an underappreciated margin of error. Today, as the discipline experiences increasing difficulty in reproducing the results of its own studies, such error not only threatens to undermine psychology's credibility but also leaves an indelible question: Is psychology actually a field of irreproducible science? In this thought-provoking new book, author Brian Hughes seeks to answer this very question. In his incisive examination of the various pitfalls that determine 'good' or 'bad' psychological science – from poor use of statistics to systematic exaggeration of findings – Hughes shows readers how to critique psychology research, enhance its validity and reliability, and understand the strengths and weaknesses of the way psychology research is produced, published, and promulgated in the 21st century. This book is essential reading for students wanting to understand how to better scrutinise psychological research methods and results, as well as practitioners and those concerned with the replication debate.

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Colorism Book Excerpt:

This timely and unique book explores the concept of colorism, which is discrimination based on the color of a person’s skin, in a world where arguably light skin is privileged over dark, and one’s wealth, health, and opportunities are impacted by skin color, sometimes irrespective of one’s racial background. In the context of our multi-cultural and increasingly global society, and the historical backdrop of slavery, the text takes a unique approach by moving from personal anecdotes to adopting a scientific perspective grounded in empirical evidence. Hall explores how skin color is a more effective framework for examining prejudice and discrimination, as racial identities become increasingly mixed due to inter-racial unions and immigration. He argues that racism as discrimination by race is contrived, polarizing, and non-quantifiable, and that it is often skin color that is used to "identify" race, often inaccurately. With skin color being a visual and physical characteristic, with race-based prejudices attached to it, the author shows how skin color can be a loaded identifier of value and identity. In a world where the objective measure of skin color crosses racial boundaries and where race will become increasingly indiscernible over time, the ultimate aim of this book is to prepare for the social future of mankind that has already begun to take shape. Split into three parts, examining historical, contemporary, and potential future perspectives on colorism, this is fascinating reading for students and academics in psychology, social work, education, criminal justice, and other social sciences. The text will also be useful for providing validation for including colorism into the public domain.

America Needs Talent Book Excerpt:

The author of Human Work in the Age of Smart Machines presents “a sharp, timely blueprint for unleashing the potential of millions of Americans” (Bruce Kats, Founding Director oof the Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program). The president and CEO of Lumina Foundation, Jamie Merisotis is a leading voice in philanthropy, higher education, and public policy. In America Needs Talent, he explains the choices that must be made on all levels—in government, education, and the private sector, as well as by individuals—to usher in a new era of success and innovation in America. What if you paid for education based on what you actually learned, instead of the time you spent in class? What if visa applicants were treated like potential assets to our nation’s talent pool, rather than potential threats monitored by Homeland Security? Merisotis proposes bold ideas to successfully deploy the world’s most talented people, revitalize urban hubs, encourage private sector innovation, and power America’s knowledge economy in the 21st century.

Talents and Distributive Justice Book Excerpt:

For much of its history, the notion of talent has been associated with the idea of ‘careers open to talent’. Its emancipatory promise of upward social mobility has ultimately radically transformed the distribution of advantaged social positions and has had a lasting influence on the very idea of social status itself. Besides its inextricable link with equality of educational opportunity, the notion of talent also came to be associated with some of the most pressing contemporary issues as diverse as the ‘war for talent’, brain drain, immigration policies, talent management, global meritocracy, the ‘excellence gap’, the ‘ownership’ of natural resources, ability taxation, etc. Nevertheless, while central to egalitarian conceptions of distributive justice, the notion of talent remains to a large extent absent from the voluminous literature on these issues. Unlike concepts traditionally associated with distributive justice, such as fairness, (in)equality, equality of opportunity as well as justice itself, the notion of talent has received only limited examination. This volume brings together a set of contributions discussing some of the most pressing problems and challenges arising out of a reductionist understanding of talents’ anatomy, a distorted characterisation of their overall distributive value or talents’ non-voluntaristic nature and many other issues revolving around talents, which existing conceptions of distributive justice in education leave either neglected or outrightly ignored. The chapters in this book were originally published in the journal, Educational Philosophy and Theory.

Ufos Book Excerpt:

UFOs: What Is the Government Really Covering Up? is not just another book about the 1947 Roswell crash. Ingeniously, Roberts takes a step back and o ers an in-depth survey of the UFO phenomenon as a whole. Using familiar case studies of alien encounters as examples, he casts a wide net that shows a clear pattern of extraterrestrial visitation and the ensuing cover-up by US and world governments. In the end, the reader cannot help coming away with the same conclusionthat something is going on and our government knows it. A must-read for those interested in ufology, conspiracy theories, and ancient aliens. Rita Louise, PhD, author of ET Chronicles: What Myth and Legend Say about Human Origin While a seemingly unexplained event in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947 exposed the American people to the phenomenon of unidentied flying objectsor UFOsthese mysterious sightings have a history that reaches far back into our collective past. Ancient megalithic structures, biblical stories, and even prehistoric art and cave paintings point to the existence of nonterrestrial lifeand with advanced technology, new recordings, and the Internet, more evidence points to their continued presence today. Why, then, do we the public know so little? Why has the media ignored credible reports from eyewitnesses and ufologists? And why have world governments suppressed these facts from their citizens? The UFO enigma is an extremely complex jigsaw puzzle comprised of many pieces. However, they t together in a way that presents a cohesive theory when you connect all the dots.

Pigeon Man Book Excerpt:

Jim Emerton bred and raced birds for 40 years and had birds return to the loft from as far as 879 miles away. Now in retirement from active racing, he devotes his time and energies to sharing his experiences, his observations and his expertise with the rest of the fancy. Here in one volume is a comprehensive collection of his thoughts about pigeons and pigeon racing, ranging from short pieces originally written for the leading fanciers' magazines to full-length articles and interviews. "What unites us in principle is the common good of the sport, and with this in mind I do what I can for others - it all oils the cogs of the sport. Some will see me as a know-all, yet I am a quiet little man making my mark, that's all. What is true is that I have made a life study of pigeons, and as a teacher I like to impart knowledge and experience...My aim is purely to tell it as it is to me, and if this is illuminating to others, then so be it."ÿ
