Description

Bringing together today’s most prominent positive psychology researchers to discuss current themes and issues in the field.

Positive psychology is the scientific study of the strengths, rather than the weaknesses, in human thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. For much of its history, psychology has focused on the negative, completely overlooking the positive attributes that allow individuals and communities to thrive. Positive Psychology is a collection of essays that together constitutes a much-needed theoretical rationale and critical assessment of the field. This book reassesses what we already know and provides directions for the future. Contributors are leading international authors, including Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Robert Sternberg, Vittorio Caprara, C. Daniel Batson, and Illona Boniwell, among others. These luminaries write in a way that is rigorous enough for academic use but accessible to professionals, policymakers, and lay audiences as well.

The content of Positive Psychology include both theoretical applied contributions focusing on a range of areas including altruism, positive creativity, science of well-being, forgiveness, coaching for leadership, cyberpsychology, intelligence, responding to catastrophes like COVID-19, time perspective, physiological and epigenetic, youth civic engagement, ups and downs of love, flow and good life, global perspectives on positive psychology, self and collective efficacy, positive psychology interventions and positive orientation. The book is pitched to senior undergraduates, graduates, academics and researchers and provides insights and perspectives into neglected and unresolved questions.

  • Brings together the latest viewpoints and research findings on positive psychology, from the leading thinkers in the field
  • Offers both theoretical and applied insights, for a well-rounded reference on this new and fast growing field
  • Contains contributions from well known authors like Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Robert Sternberg, and Vittorio Caprara
  • Appeals to academic, professional, and lay audiences with an interest in acquiring a profound knowledge of positive psychology

No other book currently on the market addresses such a breadth of issues in positive psychology. Positive Psychology represents a significant theoretical boost to this exciting field.

About this book

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in the social psychology of nonverbal communication. It explores topics including social skill, empathy, adaptive advantage, emotion-reading and emotion-hiding; and examines personal charisma, memory and communicating with robots. Together, the authors present diverse, cutting-edge research on nonverbal social intelligence as an adaptive strategy for survival and success. The collection provides an effective demonstration of the interdisciplinary nature of this topic, and it’s relevance to researchers across the social sciences and beyond.


Editorial Reviews

“This book on people's wisdom in using and understanding nonverbal communication marks a new level of maturity in the nonverbal field. First we figured out how to measure such ability, then we asked about its correlates, and finally we are asking what it's actually good for. Kudos to the field and to these talented authors!” - Judith Hall, University Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Northeastern University, USA

“This book is a ‘must have’ resource for anyone seeking a greater understanding of how we accurately (and inaccurately) send and receive messages. A remarkable cast of distinguished international scholars clearly report the most recent research on a variety of fascinating topics ranging from the evolutionary roots of social intelligence to human-machine interaction.” - Mark L. Knapp, Jesse H. Jones Centennial Professor Emeritus and University of Texas Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus, USA

“I wholeheartedly recommend this new compendium of research and theory on the non-verbal communication dimension of social intelligence. This book is essential reading for both academics and laypersons wishing to have a clearer and more profound understanding of modern society as a whole.” - Philip Zimbardo, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, Stanford University, USA and author of The Lucifer Effect

serbian literature in kosovo and metohia
Author: Sunčica Denić


Publisher: Lambert

 

 



 

 

About this book

The theme of exile and lost homeland appears as the theme of economical, social, political, cultural and emotional drama. It also appears as the documentary reality of Kosovo and Metohia, both at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries, and as the theme of great suffering in the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries. With some exceptions, this literature is related to the being of the Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohia, to everything that makes up tradition and heritage and to what we may call the poetic phenomenon and motif of the present time: persecution as doom and destiny.

The monograph by Sunčica Denić about the Serbian literature of Kosovo and Metohia, about persecution and homeland, as well as about genre unity establishes the author as a competent interpreter who evaluates this literature and positions it within the literature of the mother country, pointing to its specificity and its characteristic aesthetic categories and values.

 About Author

Sunčica Denić was born in Ugljare near Priština. She works as a full-time professor at the Pedagogical Faculty in Vranje, the University of Niš. She writes poetry, prose, literary reviews and essays. She is the
member of the Association of the Writers of Serbia, the Serbian Literary Society, the Board for Kosovo and Metohia within Matica Srpska.

About this book

This book provides insight into the significant area of public art and memorials in Berlin. Through diverse selected examples, grouped according to their basic character and significance, the most important art projects produced in the period since World War II are presented and discussed. Both as a critical theoretical work and rich photo book, this volume is a unique selection of Berlin’s diverse visual elements, contemporary and from the recent past. Some artworks are very famous and are already symbols of Berlin while others are less well known. Public Art and Urban Memorials in Berlin analyzes the connections created by public art on one hand, and urban space and architectural forms on the other.

This volume considers the Berlin works of iconic artists such as Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Daniel Libeskind, Dani Karavan, Bernar Venet, Keith Haring, Christian Boltanski, Richard Serra, Peter Eisenman, Henry Moore, Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Brüggen, Wolf Vostell, Gerhard Richter, Eduardo Chillida, Jonathan Borofsky, Olaf Metzel, Sol LeWitt, Frank Gehry, Max Lingner, Bernhard Heiliger, Frank Thiel, Juan Garaizabal and more.

The reader is led through seven chapters: Creative City Berlin, Introduction to Public Art, Public Art in Berlin, the Celebration of Berlin’s 750th Anniversary in 1987, Temporary public art, Socialist Realism in Art, and Urban Memorials. The chapter Public Art in Berlin discusses selected projects, Bundestag Public Art Collection, Public Art at Potsdamer Platz and The City and the river – a renewed relationship. The chapter on urban memorials discusses: Remembering the Divided City and Holocaust Memorials in Berlin.

The book delivers nine interviews with artists whose Berlin work is revealed through this volume (Bernar Venet, Hubertus von der Goltz, Dani Karavan, Juan Garaizabal, Susanne Lorenz, Kalliopi Lemos, Frank Thiel, Karla Sachse and Nikolaus Koliusis).

About this book

Automata Theory is an exciting, theoretical branch of computer science. Automata theory deals with the logic of computation with respect to simple machines, referred to as automata. Automata are abstract models of machines that perform computations on an input by moving through a series of states or configurations. An automaton is a mathematical object that takes a word as input and decides either to accept it or reject it. Genetic algorithms are a family of algorithms that use some kind of gene-tic principles that are present in nature, in order to solve specific computational problems. GA have proved very powerful and also very general tool for solving problems in the field of learning in neural networks, in finding the shortest path, the traveling salesman problem, in strategy games, the problem of the deployment process, the problem of determining the parameters of the system, the optimization of queries on the database. One interesting, relatively new area of application of genetic algorithms is the theory of automata.

About this book

The classical books on interpolation address numerous negative results, i.e., results on divergent interpolation processes, usually constructed over some equidistant systems of nodes. The authors present, with complete proofs, recent results on convergent interpolation processes, for trigonometric and algebraic polynomials of one real variable, not yet published in other textbooks and monographs on approximation theory and numerical mathematics. In this special, but fundamental and important field of real analysis the authors present the state of art.

Some 500 references are cited, including many new results of the authors. Basic tools in this field (orthogonal polynomials, moduli of smoothness, K-functionals, etc.) as well as some selected applications in numerical integration, integral equations, moment-preserving approximation and summation of slowly convergent series are also given. Beside the basic properties of the classical orthogonal polynomials the book provides new results on nonclassical orthogonal polynomials including methods for their numerical construction.
