Interconnectedness and the individual.


Interconnectedness and the individual.

Porter, Nicole S. et al.

Nova Science Publishers


120 pages




Porter, Bothne and Jason (no affiliations listed) discuss the foundations of community psychology through a series of short chapters that use social Darwinism, genetics, fetal development, brain plasticity, the educational system and international human rights through the filter of the "Self from Nativism" concept. Written for psychology and sociology scholars who take an ecological view of the relationship between the individual and community, this book compares the needs of individuals with large systemic changes that are designed with the common good in mind. Other topics that are distilled through these concepts include Occam's razor, the Bell Curve and IQ testing practices in the United States.
