One of the findings of the study is, that there is uncertainty – and even some confusion – regarding what social-interaction-roles Israelis and Palestinians would like to have when communicating with each other.

Feelings and Emotions: Pursuing the Mysteries of the Self Image By W. D. Raymondson
eBook (PDF): $4.50
Professional or lay person, nearly everyone refers to the various 'Self-Image' concepts…'Self-Image', 'Self Worth', 'Self-Esteem' and so forth. But when you ask for a simple definition of WHAT... More > these 'Self-Image' concepts are, WHAT they do and WHY they are so important, the answers come back either as unintelligible scientific Mumbo-Jumbo or as an empty echo of the question. That the construct we call the 'Self-Image' exists is arguable but the fact that we have an entire Psycho-Social mechanism within our head (Beliefs-Thoughts-Feelings) that creates our behaviors is above reproach. Legend or science, it makes no difference, 'Self-Image' theories are a convenient way to visualize the survival analysis and problem solving processes that goes on inside our heads and more importantly a means of tracking down WHY we behave the way that we do. That is the realm of our Primordial Human-Nature and its unscientific step child…'Primordial SURVIVALISM' … both the psychological residence of our ‘Self-Image’.< Less

A Neurodynamic Theory of Schizophrenia By Robert Miller
Hardcover: $115.55
Prints in 3-5 business days
An integrated theory of "schizophrenia" is presented, based on properties of axons interconnecting the cerebral cortex: Rapidly-conducting axons are replaced by more slowly-conducting ones.... More > This premise accounts for many features of schizophrenia, at psychological and biological levels. The theory is compatible with the "stress-diathesis" model, the neurodevelopmental hypothesis, and the dopamine theory of psychosis - but incorporates much additional evidence. Two, almost separate bodies of theory are involved, one explaining psychosis in terms of transmitter dopamine, the other accounting for non-psychotic traits in terms of axonal properties. A key question is: "Why are people with the non-psychotic trait abnormalities also prone to episodes of psychosis?" An answer is based on the premise about axonal conduction. Psychosocial causes are accepted, along with genetic ones: Psychosocial causes promote psychosis in predisposed individuals, without contributing to the basic constitution for schizophrenia.< Less
