One of the foremost authorities on adolescence provides parents with an authoritative, reassuring guidebook to this challenging period of development. Relax! The horror stories you have heard about adolescence are false. This is Dr. Laurence Steinberg s reassuring message to parents in this newly revised edition of his classic book "You and Your Adolescent," which "Publishers Weekly "says is filled with solid advice for the parents of adolescents. Among the new topics in this updated edition: -An expanded definition of adolescence to age twenty-five, recognizing that college graduates often remain dependent on their parents for an extended period, creating a new parent-child dynamic -A discussion of social media that addresses whether parents of preteens and young teens should monitor use of these new communication tools -What new research into the adolescent brain tells us about teenage behavior As Dr. Steinberg writes, Most books written for parents of teenagers were survival guides (many still are). Nowadays, adolescence is too long fifteen years in some families for mere survival. Knowledge, not fortitude, is what today s parents need. That s where this book comes in. "
In Matter and Consciousness, Paul Churchland presents a concise and contemporary overview of the philosophical issues surrounding the mind and explains the main theories and philosophical positions that have been proposed to solve them. Making the case for the relevance of theoretical and experimental results in neuroscience, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence for the philosophy of mind, Churchland reviews current developments in the cognitive sciences and offers a clear and accessible account of the connections to philosophy of mind. For this third edition, the text has been updated and revised throughout. The changes range You and Your Adolescent : The Essential Guide for Ages 10-25 free ebook from references to the iPhone's "Siri" to expanded discussions of the work of such contemporary philosophers as David Chalmers, John Searle, and Thomas Nagel. Churchland describes new research in evolution, genetics, and visual neuroscience, among other areas, arguing that the philosophical significance of these new findings lies in the support they tend to give to the reductive and eliminative versions of materialism.
