Approaches to consciousness.
Berkeley, CA : Thinking Allowed Productions, c1992
(ca. 120 min.)
A series of four interviews conducted by Jeffrey Mishlove on problems of consciousness. In "The evolution of consciousness" Robert Ornstein suggests that the mind is composed of many subroutines that he refers to as a "squadron of simpletons." Self-mastery requires orchestrating these "simpletons" to work as a team. "The nervous system and the soul" deals with the dramatic, musical and mathematical qualities of the soul as they are available even to the mentally retarded and those with other neurological defects. Oliver Sacks maintains that our conventional view of awareness keeps us from appreciating the unique talents of those with Tourette's syndrome and other disorders. In "Working with comas" Arnold Mindell discusses the unique methods he has developed for working with individuals in comatose states. Using the techniques of process psychology he is able to find channels into the minds of comatose individuals that allow him to establish communication. In "The art of psychotherapy," Irvin D. Yalom discusses his novel When Nietzsche wept, which highlights the existential issues of human consciousness which are the basis of his own therapeutic approach. The soul-searching self-examination of the philosopher Nietzsche is contrasted with the methodical approach of Joseph Breuer, a renowned physician and pioneer psychotherapist.

(ca. 60 min.)
NOTE Presents two episodes; each episode ca. 30 min.
Part of a 26-part introductory course in psychology that offers an overview of historic and current theories of human behavior and features demonstrations, classic experiments and simulations. Program 25 represents the attempt to understand mental processes at the level of the brain's functioning and not merely from information-processing models and theories. It relies heavily on an empirical analysis of what is happening in the brain, and where, when a person thinks, reasons, decides, judges, encodes information, recalls information, learns, and solves problems. Program 26 discusses how culture shapes our thinking, feeling and actions. Cultural psychology integrates cross-cultural research with social and personality psychology, anthropology, and other social sciences. Its main new perspective is centered on how cultures construct selves and other central aspects of individual personality, beliefs, values, and emotions--much of what we are and do. This area has become more important in both psychology and American society with the globalization of our planet, increasing interaction of people from different cultural backgrounds, and emerging issues of diversity.
