Enactivist interventions : rethinking the mind
Gallagher, Shaun, 1948- author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2017
Enactivist Interventions' is an interdisciplinary work that explores how theories of embodied cognition illuminate many aspects of the mind, including intentionality, representation, the affect, perception, action and free will, higher-order cognition, and intersubjectivity. Gallagher argues for a rethinking of the concept of mind, drawing on pragmatism, phenomenology and cognitive science. Enactivism is presented as a philosophy of nature that has significant methodological and theoretical implications for the scientific investigation of the mind. Gallagher argues that, like the basic phenomena of perception and action, sophisticated cognitive phenomena like reflection, imagining, and mathematical reasoning are best explained in terms of an affordance-based skilled coping. He offers an account of the continuity that runs between basic action, affectivity, and a rationality that in every case remains embodied. Gallagher's analysis also addresses recent predictive models of brain function and outlines an alternative, enactivist interpretation that emphasizes the close coupling of brain, body and environment rather than a strong boundary that isolates the brain in its internal processes. The extensive relational dynamics that integrates the brain with the extra-neural body opens into an environment that is physical, social and cultural and that recycles back into the enactive process. Cognitive processes are in-the-world rather than in-the-head; they are situated in affordance spaces defined across evolutionary, developmental and individual histories, and are constrained by affective processes and normative dimensions of social and cultural practices.

Shame : a brief history
Stearns, Peter N., author
Urbana, Illinois : University of Illinois Press, 2017
Exploring Shame: The Interdisciplinary Context -- Shame and Shaming in Premodern Societies -- The Impact of Modernity: Some Possibilities -- Reconsidering Shame in Western Society: The Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries -- The Revival of Shame: Contemporary History.

Shame varies as an individual experience and its manifestations across time and cultures. Groups establish identity and enforce social behaviors through shame and shaming, while attempts at shaming often provoke a social or political backlash. Yet historians often neglect shame's power to complicate individual, international, cultural, and political relationships. Peter N. Stearns draws on his long career as a historian of emotions to provide the foundational text on shame 's history and how this history contributes to contemporary issues around the emotion. Summarizing current research, Stearns unpacks the major debates that surround this complex emotion. He also surveys the changing role of shame in the United States from the nineteenth century to today, including shame 's revival as a force in the 1960s and its place in today 's social media. Looking ahead, Stearns maps the abundant opportunities for future historical research and historically informed interdisciplinary scholarship. Written for interested readers and scholars alike, Shame combines significant new research with a wider synthesis.

The 5th edition explores how social media continues to be a form of influence, but it also looks at grassroots movements, such as the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street, and traditional forms of persuasion, such as advertising, marketing, and political campaigning"--Publisher's website.

The neural basis of human belief systems
edited by Frank Krueger and Jordan Grafman
Hove, East Sussex ; Psychology Press, 2013
What are beliefs? / Patricia S. Churchland and Paul M. Churchland -- The neuropsychology of belief formation / Robyn Langdon and Emily Connaughton -- A multiple systems approach to causal reasoning / Richard Patterson and Aron K. Barbey -- The neural bases of attitudes, evaluation, and behavior change / Emily B. Falk and Matthew D. Lieberman -- Interpersonal trust as a dynamic belief / Ewart de Visser and Frank Krueger -- The neural bases of moral belief systems / Ricardo de Oliveira-Souza, Roland Zahn, and Jorge Moll -- Neuroscientific approaches to 'mens rea' assessment / Ullrich Wagner and Henrik Walter -- The neural structure of political belief / Laura Moretti [and others] -- The neural basis of religion / Joseph Bulbulia and Uffe Schjoedt -- The neural basis of abnormal personal belief / Vaughan Bell and Peter W. Halligan -- I believe to my soul / Frank Krueger and Jordan Grafman.

Belief is one of the most commonly used, yet unexplained terms in neuroscience. Beliefs can be seen as forms of mental representations and one of the building blocks of our conscious thoughts. This book provides an interdisciplinary overview of what we currently know about the neural basis of human belief systems, and how different belief systems are implemented in the human brain. The chapters in this volume explain how the neural correlates of beliefs mediate a range of explicit and implicit behaviours ranging from moral decision making, to the practice of religion. Drawing inferences from philosophy, psychology, psychiatry, religion, and cognitive neuroscience, the book has important implications for understanding how different belief systems are implemented in the human brain, and outlines the directions which research on the cognitive neuroscience of beliefs should take in the future.

The seven deadly sins of psychology : a manifesto for reforming the culture of scientific practice / Chris Chambers
Chambers, Chris, author
Princeton, New Jersey ; Princeton University Press, [2017]
The sin of bias -- The sin of hidden flexibility -- The sin of unreliability -- The sin of data hoarding -- The sin of corruptibility -- The sin of internment -- The sin of bean counting -- Redemption.

"Chris Chambers draws on his own experiences as a working scientist to reveal a dark side to psychology that few of us ever see. Using the seven deadly sins as a metaphor, he shows how practitioners are vulnerable to powerful biases that undercut the scientific method, how they routinely torture data until it produces outcomes that can be published in prestigious journals, and how studies are much less reliable than advertised. He reveals how a culture of secrecy denies the public and other researchers access to the results of psychology experiments, how fraudulent academics can operate with impunity, and how an obsession with bean counting creates perverse incentives for academics ... Outlining a core set of best practices that can be applied across the sciences, Chambers demonstrates how all these sins can be corrected by embracing open science, an emerging philosophy that seeks to make research and its outcomes as transparent as possible."--Provided by publisher.
