This original and lucid account of the complexities of love and its essential role in human well-being draws on the latest scientific research. Three eminent psychiatrists tackle the difficult task of reconciling what artists and thinkers have known for thousands of years about the human heart with what has only recently been learned about the primitive functions of the human brain. A General Theory of Love demonstrates that our nervous systems are not self-contained: from earliest childhood, our brains actually link with those of the people close to us, in a silent rhythm that alters the very structure of our brains, establishes life-long emotional patterns, and makes us, in large part, who we are. Explaining how relationships function, how parents shape their child’s developing self, how psychotherapy really works, and how our society dangerously flouts essential emotional laws, this is a work of rare passion and eloquence that will forever change the way you think about human intimacy. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Founded upon the psychoevolutionary theories of Darwin, Plutchik and Izard, a general socioevolutionary theory of the emotions - affect-spectrum theory - classifies a wide spectrum of the emotions and analyzes them on the sociological, psychological and neurobiological levels. This neurocognitive sociology of the emotions supersedes the major theoretical perspectives developed in the sociology of emotions by showing primary emotions to be adaptive reactions to fundamental problems of life which have evolved into elementary social relationships and which can predict occurrences of the entire spectrum of primary, complex secondary, and tertiary emotions. Written by leading social theorist Warren D. TenHouten, this book presents an encyclopaedic classification of the emotions, describing forty-six emotions in detail, and presenting a general multilevel theory of emotions and social life. The scope of coverage of this key work is highly topical and comprehensive, and includes the development of emotions in childhood, symbolic elaboration of complex emotions, emotions management, violence, and cultural and gender differences. While primary emotions have clearly defined valences, this theory shows that complex emotions obey no algebraic law and that all emotions have both creative and destructive potentialities.

As the country goes through various political upheavals from colony to socialist republic to civil war to peace and capitalism, the world outside seeps into Ludo's life through snippets on the radio, voices from next door, glimpses of someone peeing on a balcony, or a man fleeing his pursuers. A General Theory of Oblivion is a perfectly crafted, wild patchwork of a novel, playing on a love of storytelling and fable.

This book represents a most robust look at the study of leadership while representing multiple disciplines in a quest to find agreement about leadership and theory. Russ Volckmann, International Leadership Review In this compelling book, top scholars from diverse fields describe the progress they have made in developing a general theory of leadership. Led by James MacGregor Burns, Pulitzer Prize winning author of the classic Leadership (1978), they tell the story of this intellectual venture and the conclusions and questions that arose from it. The early chapters describe how, in order to discuss an integrative theory, the group first wrestled with the nature of theory as well as basic aspects of the human condition that make leadership necessary and possible. They then tackle topics such as: the many faces of power woven into the leadership fabric; crucial elements of group dynamics and the leader follower relationship; ethical issues lying at the heart of leadership; constructivist perspectives on leadership, causality, and social change; and the historical and cultural contexts that influence and are influenced by leadership. The book concludes with a commentary by Joanne Ciulla and an Afterword by James MacGregor Burns. The contributors thorough coverage of leadership, as well as their approach to this unique undertaking, will be of great interest to leaders, students and scholars of leadership.

The General Theory of Eco-Social Science has made fundamental changes to Social Science; it introduces five new theories to the field of humanities and social science. ECO-ENTITY--An Entirely New Sociology It lays out an all new system of ecological theory integrating the social and natural sciences. At its core is the new concept of the "eco-entity," its roles and inner systems, its rules, operation laws and operating mechanism. ECO-RESOURCES--New Philosophy and Management It advances the concept of "eco-resources", expanding to the social relations of human beings, and puts forth the new theories of the monist world outlook of eco-resources, the dichotomy between positive and negative eco-resources, and the strategic management of eco-resources, through which it reveals a new dimension to humanities and social sciences. ECOLOGICAL SOCIETY--A Brand New Political Science It introduces the doctrine of an "ecological society" where the rule of law is replaced by the "rule of organicism," and explains the operating principles and governance of the future ecological society. ECO-ECONOMICS--A New Economics It demonstrates with flow charts the economic growth cycle. It depicts the laws of commodity value and "eco-value." It stresses the organic inter-relations between the government and the market. The author systematically expounded the economic growth cycle, the starting point, the methods, the principles, the mechanisms and the formulas, in his eco-economy growth theory. ECO -CURRENCY--A Complete New Theory of Currency It creates the new theory of Eco-currency, three basic attributes of currency and three major functions of currency. The author proposes a new eco-monetary policy: management of role currencies, or a "visible hand" in adjusting the economy. In addition, he also illustrates the elements of eco-currency, a new currency, in detail.
