Book Description :

This book addresses psychological studies of humour in Chinese societies. It starts by reviewing how the concept of humour evolves in Chinese history, and how it is perceived by Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism respectively. It then compares differences in the Western and the Chinese perceptions of humor and discusses empirical studies that were conducted to examine such differences. It also discusses the cultural origin and empirical evidence of the Chinese ambivalence about humor and presents empirical findings that illustrate its existence. Having done these, it proceeds to discuss psychological studies that examine how humour is related to various demographic, dispositional variables as well as how humour is related to creativity in Chinese societies. It also discusses how humour is related to emotional expressions and mental health in Chinese society as well. It concludes with a discussion on how workplace humor is reflected and developed in Chinese contexts. Taken together, this book attempts to bring together the theoretical propositions, empirical studies, and cultural analyses of humor in Chinese societies.

Book Description :

This book celebrates the investigative power of phenomenology to explore the phenomenological sense of space and time in conjunction with the phenomenology of intentionality, the invisible, the sacred, and the mystical. It examines the course of life through its ontopoietic genesis, opening the cosmic sphere to logos. The work also explores, on the one hand, the intellectual drive to locate our cosmic position in the universe and, on the other, the pull toward the infinite. It intertwines science and its grounding principles with imagination in order to make sense of the infinite. This work is the first of a two-part work that contains papers presented at the 62nd International Congress of Phenomenology, The Forces of the Cosmos and the Ontopoietic Genesis of Life, held in Paris, France, August 2012. It features the work of scholars in such diverse disciplines as biology, anthropology, pedagogy, and psychology who philosophically investigate the cosmic origins of beingness. Coverage in this first part includes: Toward a New Enlightenment: Metaphysics as Philosophy of Life, Transformation in Phenomenology: Husserl and Tymieniecka, Biologically Organized Quantum Vacuum and the Cosmic Origin of Cellular Life, Plotinus "Enneads" and Self-Creation, The Creative Potential of Humor, Transcendental Morphology – A Phenomenological Interpretation of Human and Non-Human Cosmos, and Cognition and Emotion: From Dichotomy to Ambiguity. ​

Book Description :

For years the research on creativity has been divided into person, process, product and press (environment) foci. However, the field is now much more extensive and diverse than it was when this scheme was proposed, and these four categories no longer catpure its essence. ""The Creativity Research Handbook"" shows how extensive and diverse the field has become. ""The Handbook"" contains extensive reviews and is intended to provide a comprehensive review of creativity research, first by the breadth of coverage of the chapters and second, by the depth and coverage within each chapter. ""The Handbook"" is divided into two parts, the first disciplinary and the second topical. The approach is a comprehensive one - authors do not focus on their own models or theories but instead give complete overviews. The disciplinary structure allows a more sensitive and accurate placement of research. The disciplinary framework also facilitates exchanges with the wider scholarly community - research on creative thinking, for example, shares assumptions with the cognitive sciences, and the disciplinary assignment can help individuals studying creativity to benefit from those sciences. Several of the contributions demonstrate how creativity research has benefited from such disciplinary connections. Part 2 contains six topical chapters; each of them focuses on one critical topic.
