READINGS AND GETTING STARTED

Postby drlynch on Fri Apr 18, 2008 6:31 pm

Readings:

Please do not view this board as "my" board or my particular invention. It does not have to be the particular soup of Affect Psychology, Humiliation Studies and Psychohistory. It is of course meant primarily to be a study of Affect Psychology supported by the other two, but feel free to discuss the others independently. I also would like to see a vigorous Humiliation Studies discussion.

Now as this conglomeration is my idea many might not be familiar with all three areas. I offer the following basic readings as a simple starting point. Please offer suggestion of your own. What I offer is the most basic and quickest outlines to get stated.


Quick start:


Affect Theory/Psychology


Summaries:

Online:

Books:
I offer my book as it is the only accessible text I know of that is short.
"How To Get Where You Want To Go"
http://brianlynchmd.com/NEWHOME2006/WRITING.HTML
several hours worth of reading at most although I tell people it "looks" eastier than it is.

There is also Paul Hollingers' "What Babies Say Before They Can Talk"
It is also a general text that is very good and about the same length but geared a little more toward expectant mothers.


Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies

Psychohistory:

One should be warned that the material covered in this area can be and is quite disturbing.

http://www.psychohistory.com/

Reading several articles here will give you a flavor for the discipline.


This material will give anyone a good overview of what I am trying to do and I hope excite a few people. All in all not many hours involved.

Going beyond:

There are no very basic texts on Psychohistory or Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies. But the first book would be Foundations of Psychohistory by Lloyd De Mause and for Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies it would be Making Enemies: Humiliation and International Conflict and the classic in Affect Theory is Don Nathansons' "Shame and Pride: Affect, Sex, and the Birth of the Self".

Otherwise please explore the board under "books".
