Abstract

A autora recorre à obra teórica de Sérgio Paulo Rouanet para mostrar a possibilidade de entrelaçamento entre a dimensão social e a dimensão psíquica do ser humano. Rouanet considera “impossível entender a luta de classes, as situações externas de opressão, de ideologia, sem entender os mecanismos psíquicos que condicionam todas essas distorções”. Baseada neste pressuposto, ela desenvolve sua obra de forma acessível aos interessados no tema.

Abstract

Em meados da década de 1940, a psiquiatra Nise da Silveira organizou ateliês de pintura e modelagem com os pacientes do Centro Psiquiátrico Pedro II. A produção desses ateliês – hoje acervo do Museu de Imagens do Inconsciente – chamou a atenção de cientistas e intelectuais da época. O interesse suscitado pelas obras não se restringia à sua utilidade no tratamento psiquiátrico: elas também exemplificavam um novo conceito de qualidade estética e, ainda, assumiam papel central num debate político mais amplo, sobre o lugar do louco e da loucura na sociedade. É com esse pano de fundo que se desenrolam as análises do livro, dividido em três capítulos. O primeiro traça um panorama do modernismo brasileiro. O segundo aborda as influências teóricas contidas na noção de “arte virgem”, do crítico de arte Mário Pedrosa. E, por fim, o terceiro faz uma análise comparativa da categoria de “arte virgem” com a de “arte bruta”, do intelectual francês Jean Dubuffet, salientando as especificidades da experiência brasileira. O autor se detém a uma problemática histórica, estudando um período marcado tanto pela ebulição da “arte informal” quanto pelo questionamento das práticas psiquiátricas, de onde resultou o reconhecimento da “arte de loucos”. A partir daí arte e loucura combinaram-se de tal forma que, hoje, quase ninguém duvida do potencial dessa união. “Este é um livro para artistas e críticos de arte e para profissionais que lidam com a loucura e a arte”, recomenda o editor da coleção.

Abstract

It is fashionable to criticize economic theory for focusing too much on rationality and ignoring the imperfect and emotional way in which real economic decisions are reached. All of us facing the global economic crisis wonder just how rational economic men and women can be. Behavioral economics — an effort to incorporate psychological ideas into economics — has become all the rage.This book by well-known economist David K. Levine questions the idea that behavioral economics is the answer to economic problems. It explores the successes and failures of contemporary economics both inside and outside the laboratory. It then asks whether popular behavioral theories of psychological biases are solutions to the failures. It not only provides an overview of popular behavioral theories and their history, but also gives the reader the tools for scrutinizing them.Levine’s book is essential reading for students and teachers of economic theory and anyone interested in the psychology of economics.

Abstract

Youth violence: sources and solutions in South Africa thoroughly and carefully reviews the evidence for risk and protective factors that influence the likelihood of young people acting aggressively. Layers of understanding are built by viewing the problem from a multitude of perspectives, including the current situation in which South African youth are growing up, perspectives from developmental psychology, the influences of race, class and gender, and of the media. The book examines the evidence for effective interventions in the contexts of young people’s lives – their homes, their schools, their leisure activities, with gangs, in the criminal justice system, in cities and neighbourhoods, and with sexual offenders. In doing so, thoughtful suggestions are made for keeping an evidence-based perspective while (necessarily) adapting interventions for developing world contexts, such as South Africa.

Abstract

This book analyzes heroin users and the drug subculture on the Shetland Islands, an area known for its geographical remoteness, rural character and relative wealth. It fills the scientific gap created by the conventional research in heroin research, which is usually conducted in urban areas and relies on treatment and prison populations. Based on qualitative, in-depth interviews with twenty-four heroin users, this book depicts and analyzes the nature and historical development of the local heroin scene. It illustrates the features and internal structures of the subculture, and it examines the manner in which both are influenced by the location-specific geographical, cultural and socio-economic conditions. It thus reveals complex causal associations that are hard to recognize in urban environments. Complete with a list of references used and recommendations for future research, this book is a vital tool for progressive and pragmatic approaches to policy, intervention and research in the field of illicit drug use.
