He believed that the imagination roamed where articulated knowledge had not yet voyaged, and that it was the artist and visionary who first explored new territory, civilizing it, in essence, for those who came later. The study of Jung makes the dead religious past spring back to life. Want to support this channel?

Tal Ben-Shahar discusses current research on the science of happiness and introduces ideas and tools that can actually make a difference in one's life. The study of happiness or of enhancing the quality of our lives, has been dominated by pop-psychology (much charisma, but relatively little substance) and academia (much substance, but isolated from most people's everyday lives). Positive Psychology, the scientific study of optimal human functioning, creates a bridge between the Ivory Tower and Main Street, making rigorous academic ideas accessible to all. Tal Ben-Shahar, instructor of the most popular course at Harvard University, discusses the findings of current research on the science of happiness and introduces ideas and tools that can actually make a difference in one's life.

In this lecture, I define personality from multiple angles, historical, constructivist, psychoanalytic, behavioral and neuropsychological. Personality is a way of looking at the world, and a characteristic mode of behaving. It's both stable and adaptively dynamic. Want to support this channel?

"Great wits are sure to madness near allied, and thin partitions do their bounds divide" (Dryden) There often seems to be a link between creativity and mental illness. Many great poets, playwrights, artists and composers suffered from depression, alcoholism, obsessionality, bipolar or psychotic disorders at some time in their lives. How strong is the link and what might account for it? Are these disorders beneficial to the creative process or a drawback that must be overcome? The transcript and downloadable versions of all of the lectures are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/genius-or-madness Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

In this lecture, I bring the 2017 Introduction to Personality and its Transformations to its close, talking about the psychology of belief, describing the reality and potential of the individual. Human beings are information foragers, evolved to live on the border between explored and unexplored territory, order and chaos and, symbolically, ying and yang. That's where information flow is maximized, and the meaning that helps buttress us against tragedy is to be found.

Dr. Sarah Domoff is an Assistant Professor in Clinical Psychology at Central Michigan University. Her research examines children's use of media and mobile devices (e.g., Tablets and Smartphones). She is interested in understanding how new media use may impact children's health and development. Dr. Domoff will be presenting two of her more recent studies. The first will present the development of a new measure to assess problematic (i.e., "addictive") media use in children. The second study will describe the use of audio-recording technology to characterize parent-child interactions around media use in the home.

Twitter: https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/drjordanpeterson/ Sigmund Freud was the great synthesizer and advocate of the ideas of the unconscious. He gave motivational factors such as lust and aggression primary places in the human psyche, and helped give clear formulation to the idea that the human psyche was made up of oft-conflicting subpersonalities. Furthermore, he was a clear observer of the pathology of the too-close, dependent family, and a great observer of and guide to dreams. For all these reasons, academic psychologists tend to hate and denigrate his achievements. Want to support this channel?
