Desensitization is intended to weaken and replace this association CR Fear UCR To the Student In most college courses students spend more time with their textbooks than with their professors. Given this reality, it helps if you like your textbook. Making textbooks likable, however, is a tricky proposition. By its very nature, a textbook must introduce a great many new concepts, ideas, and theories. Consequently, we have tried to make this book as likable as possible without compromising the academic content that your instructor demands. Thus, we have tried to make the book lively, informal, engaging, well organized, easy to read, practical, and occasionally humorous. Before you plunge into Chapter 1, let us explain some of the key features that can help you get the most out of the book.
Medieval thinkers used abstract philosophical and logical categorizations more suited to abstract philosophy than to pragmatic taxonomy. This is sometimes credited to the development of sophisticated optical lenses, which allowed the morphology of organisms to be studied in much greater detail.
One of the earliest authors to take advantage of this leap in technology was the Italian physician Andrea Cesalpino — , who has been called "the first taxonomist". At the time, his classifications were perhaps the most complex yet produced by any taxonomist, as he based his taxa on many combined characters. The next major taxonomic works were produced by Joseph Pitton de Tournefort France, — With his major works Systema Naturae 1st Edition in ,  Species Plantarum in ,  and Systema Naturae 10th Edition ,  he revolutionized modern taxonomy.
His works implemented a standardized binomial naming system for animal and plant species,  which proved to be an elegant solution to a chaotic and disorganized taxonomic literature.
Even taxonomic names published by Linnaeus himself before these dates are considered pre-Linnaean.
Spindle diagrams are typical for Evolutionary taxonomy The same relationship, expressed as a cladogram typical for cladistics Whereas Linnaeus aimed simply to create readily identifiable taxa, the idea of the Linnaean taxonomy as translating into a sort of dendrogram of the animal and plant kingdoms was formulated toward the end of the 18th century, well before On the Origin of Species was published.
One of the first modern groups tied to fossil ancestors was birds. As more and more fossil groups were found and recognized in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, palaeontologists worked to understand the history of animals through the ages by linking together known groups. As evolutionary taxonomy is based on Linnaean taxonomic ranks, the two terms are largely interchangeable in modern use.
Many other levels can be used; domain, the highest level within life, is both new and disputed. Main article: Kingdom biology Well before Linnaeus, plants and animals were considered separate Kingdoms. As advances in microscopy made classification of microorganisms possible, the number of kingdoms increased, five and six-kingdom systems being the most common.
Domains are a relatively new grouping.
Learning the tricks makes Net-based research much easier. Hint: Find out what happens when you hold down the right-hand mouse button on a PC or the whole button on a Mac once you have the cursor on top of a hyperlink.
These resources currently fall into three general categories: a General guides or directories such as Yahoo! They can be searched by either keywords or phrases and provide ranked listings of web pages that contain the search target words or phrases. Volunteer specialists who claim to be experts on the topic select the links.
Carefully check everything you type online because even the slightest error in spelling a URL or an e-mail address will cause a failure to retrieve the web page or to deliver the e-mail message.
Remember that computers are stupid and will do exactly and only what you tell them to do. Plan what to look for before going online. Do not rely on the Internet as your principal or only source of data or references in a research project especially if you want a good grade. The Net may be easy to use, but your teachers will expect you to cite journal articles, books, and other printed sources more than you cite Internet materials in research.
Developing your library skills is essential. Many schools now subscribe to online full-text databases that allow you to research articles and other information sources with your own computer. Learn to recognize the characteristics of a good online resource site. Such persons may be professionals or staff members at a reputable institution such as a hospital or university.
These sites seem to provide a broad set of resources, are balanced and reasonably objective in their content, and avoid sensational or one-sided viewpoints. If you contact anyone online for help, be courteous. Frankly, he or she has already done a lot of volunteer work by editing the site online. I hope some of these ideas and suggestions help. The Internet offers an awesome array of learning resources related to psychology.
Welcome to an exciting new world of discovery. What Is Adjustment?
What Is Somewhat Important? What Is Very Important? The eager passengers-to-be scurry on board. At the reservation desks in the airport terminal, clerks punch up the appropriate ticket information on their computer terminals and quickly process the steady stream of passengers.
In a few minutes, the airplane will slice into the cloudy, snow-laden skies above Chicago. In a mere three hours its passengers will be transported from the piercing cold of a Chicago winter to the balmy beaches of the Bahamas. Another everyday triumph for technology will have taken place.
Explain what is meant by the paradox of progress and how theorists have explained it. We are the children of technology. We take for granted such impressive feats as transporting people over miles in a matter of hours. After all, we live in a time of unparalleled progress. Our modern Western society has made extraordinary strides in transportation, energy, communication, agriculture, and medicine.
This paradox is evident in many aspects of contemporary life, as seen in the following examples. Modern technology has provided us with countless time-saving devices—automobiles, telephones, vacuum cleaners, dishwashers, photocopiers, fax machines. Today, cell phones allow people to talk to friends or colleagues and battle rush hour at the same time.
In a matter of seconds a personal computer can perform calculations that would take months if done by hand.
Nonetheless, most of us complain about not having enough time. Surveys suggest that most of us spend more and more time working and have less and less time for ourselves Schor, Where has all our free time gone?
Undeniably, there are pockets of genuine poverty, but social critics Paul Wachtel , David Myers , and Gregg Easterbrook argue convincingly that in North America and Europe the middle and upper classes are larger and wealthier than ever before. Most of us take for granted things that were once considered luxuries, such as color television and air conditioning. In the late s, the amount of money spent on luxury goods increased four times faster than overall spending Frank, In his book titled The High Price of Materialism, Tim Kasser summarizes research showing that people who are especially concerned with money and possessions tend to report lower levels of happiness than others.
The range of life choices available to people in modern societies has increased exponentially in recent decades. For example, Barry Schwartz describes how a simple visit to a local supermarket can require a consumer to choose from varieties of cookies, 61 suntan lotions, lipsticks, and salad dressings. Today, people tend to have unprecedented opportunities to make choices about how they will be educated e.
Life in the United States and much of the Western world may never be quite the same again. They are angry about the injustice of it all, disgusted by the senseless violence, and anxious about what future terrorist attacks might bring.
Above all else, Americans have lost their sense of invulnerability. In light of the fundamental ways in which our lives have been changed, you might wonder whether the principal premise of this book—that the basic challenge of modern life is the quest for meaning and direction— might suddenly seem irrelevant.
