Psychology (43 Books)


The category of psychology referes to works about the study of the mind, occurring partly via the study of behavior. Grounded in scientific method, psychology has the immediate goal of understanding individuals and groups by both establishing general principles and researching specific cases, and for many, it ultimately aims to benefit society. In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist, and can be classified as a social, behavioral, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and neurobiological processes that underlie certain cognitive functions and behaviors.

Being Happy : The 10 Most Successful Strategies, Volume 1

By: Martin Nagle

If you take a look at the world we live in, most people have a completely backwards approach to pursuing happiness. We’re generally raised with the idea: “If you work hard at something, you’ll be successful, and then you can be happy”. But when you think like that, you’ll notice that as soon as you reach a goal, another one will take it’s place. And then another. Like the horizon, our goals keep shifting and moving just out of reach. And with that, our happiness. Our ...

"... And be aware of your conditioning and society's effect on your thinking. Try giving yourself some unconditional self-acceptance, give yourself a break from the inner critic by, paradoxically, not struggling with anything. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be some notion of a perfect person that we are never actually able to be ourselves and enjoy our life. And remember – it's not a rehearsal – this is the real thing. Each moment is a new choice to love it or resent it."

By: Douglas R. Stickle

In the aftermath of 9/11, President George W. Bush declared the dawn of a new kind of war. He has repeatedly emphasized that means and measures of success in this new war will differ greatly from wars past. However, if this “war on terrorism” is unlike any other war, then what is it like?
