📒The Psychopath Test ✍ Jon Ronson
📝The Psychopath Test Book Synopsis : In this madcap journey, a bestselling journalist investigates psychopaths and the industry of doctors, scientists, and everyone else who studies them. The Psychopath Test is a fascinating journey through the minds of madness. Jon Ronson's exploration of a potential hoax being played on the world's top neurologists takes him, unexpectedly, into the heart of the madness industry. An influential psychologist who is convinced that many important CEOs and politicians are, in fact, psychopaths teaches Ronson how to spot these high-flying individuals by looking out for little telltale verbal and nonverbal clues. And so Ronson, armed with his new psychopath-spotting abilities, enters the corridors of power. He spends time with a death-squad leader institutionalized for mortgage fraud in Coxsackie, New York; a legendary CEO whose psychopathy has been speculated about in the press; and a patient in an asylum for the criminally insane who insists he's sane and certainly not a psychopath. Ronson not only solves the mystery of the hoax but also discovers, disturbingly, that sometimes the personalities at the helm of the madness industry are, with their drives and obsessions, as mad in their own way as those they study. And that relatively ordinary people are, more and more, defined by their maddest edges.
📒The Psychopath ✍ Hugues Herve
📝The Psychopath Book Synopsis : The Psychopath: Theory, Research, and Practice is a comprehensive review of the latest advancements in the study of psychopathy. As research into psychopathy over the past two decades has burgeoned, it has had significant implications for clinical practice, with important ethical considerations raised as interest into psychopathy has moved into the real world. This volume is the first comprehensive review of these applied topics. Dr. Robert Hare, a leading authority on the subject, introduces the work by discussing the current state of psychopathy research, highlighting its advancements, potential pitfalls or impediments, and future trajectory. Subsequent chapters give a historical overview of psychopathy, examine measurement issues, etiological theories, and practical considerations. The Psychopath provides a solid foundation from which research and practice into this socially destructive condition can advance into the 21st century. This book will attract academics, researchers, theorists, practitioners, lawyers, judges, law enforcement personnel, students, and other professionals interested in or working with forensic psychology. It also serves as a supplementary text for graduate students enrolled in programs with a specialization in forensic psychology or criminology.
📒The Psychopath Factory ✍ Tristam Vivian Adams
📝The Psychopath Factory Book Synopsis : Psychopaths seem to be everywhere. They are on the news and at the movies. People who lack empathy, be they ruthless entrepreneurs or crazed spree killers are frequently labeled psychopathic; the charming socialiser is just as suspect as the awkward anti-social loner. The conception of what defines a psychopath seems to be a morass of contradictions, the only consistency being the supposition of a lack of empathy. The Psychopath Factory: How Capitalism Organises Empathy examines how the requirements, stimuli, affects and environments of work condition our empathy. In some cases, work calls for no empathy characters who don t blink or flinch in the face of danger nor crack under pressure. In other cases, capitalism requires empathy in spades charming, friendly, sensitive and listening managers, customer service agents and careers. When workers are required to either ignore their empathy to-do a job, or dial it up to increase productivity, they are entering a psychopathic modality. The affective blitz of work, flickering screens, emotive content, vibrating alerts and sounding alarms erode our sensitivities whilst we are modulated with attention stimulants, social lubricants and so called anti-anxiety drugs. This is amidst a virulent and exacerbating climate of competition and frenzied quantification. Capitalism pressures us to feign empathy and leverage social relationships on one hand, whilst being cold and pragmatic on the other. We are passionate and enthusiastic whilst keeping a professional distance. Sympathy, care, compassion and altruism are important; The Psychopath Factory: How Capitalism Organises Empathy argues that it is a mistake to presuppose that empathy can achieve these. Rather than being subject to the late capitalist organisation of our empathy, psychopathy could be a means of escape.
📒Social Theory The Psychopath ✍ Julien Coallier
📝Social Theory the Psychopath Book Synopsis : This paper uses research on PCL-R testing using labelling theory and the general crime theory as an integrated approach for examining the psychopath. Findings indicate hypocrisy plays a significant factor in the formation of psychopaths by causing the psychopath to increase potency of ideology from deviancy as social reactions towards labels intended to confront, isolate, punish, or deter, act to reinforce the ideology to deviancy. Whereas general crime theory focuses on the actions of the psychopath as having to do with ideology, the labeling theory helps explain how deviants develop into no longer caring for that which is not their deviance, or to lose desire to prevent themselves from being deviant.
📒The Psychopath Inside ✍ James Fallon
📝The Psychopath Inside Book Synopsis : “Compelling, essential reading for understanding the underpinnings of psychopathy.” — M. E. Thomas, author of Confessions of a Sociopath For his first fifty-eight years, James Fallon was by all appearances a normal guy. A successful neuroscientist and professor, he’d been raised in a loving family, married his high school sweetheart, and had three kids and lots of friends. Then he learned a shocking truth that would not only disrupt his personal and professional life, but would lead him to question the very nature of his own identity. While researching serial killers, he uncovered a pattern in their brain scans that helped explain their cold and violent behavior. Astonishingly, his own scan matched that pattern. And a few months later he learned that he was descended from a long line of murderers. Fallon set out to reconcile the truth about his own brain with everything he knew as a scientist about the mind, behavior, and personality.
📒Calvin The Psychopath ✍ Rear Admiral Joseph H. Miller
📝Calvin the Psychopath Book Synopsis : This book concerns true salvation. Many original Christian writings were written to refute false teachings or heresy. This is the justification for this book. The heresy of Calvinism has risen and fallen several times since its origin. The concept of predestination is noted by several people in the 1000 years before Calvin. Muslims believe in predestination. Calvin had no original thoughts. He invented a system of terror to force his beliefs. The belief that some babies are born to go to hell to show God's glory (Calvin) is horrible. This book refutes those false interpretations. Reforms have occurred since the beginning. Adam and Eve reformed to become closer to God. Peter, John, and Paul fought Gnosticism in the early Church. Justin Martyr, Charlemagne, Constantine, Augustine, Patrick, Bede, Eriugena, King Alfred, Dustan, (the Tenth-Century Reformation), Anselm, Ockhan, Wyclif, Waldo, Hus, Gutenberg, (The printing press was the most powerful influence in the Reformation.), Wesel, Gerson, Luther, Melanchthon, Oecolampadius, Zwingli, Farel, Bullinger, Calvin, Beza, Bucer, Larimer, Hooper, Rildey, Knox, Erasmus, Paracelsus, Durer were all reformers (There are others not listed here.) In a review of the history of all the reformations in religion Calvin was only a speck. Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion is reviewed in some detail. This reveals a distortion of Scripture, a lack of knowledge of the love of Christ, and ignorance that Christ died for "the sins of the whole world." (I John 2:2) This book gives the simple process of true salvation and also an in-depth review for those who like to explore the deep recesses of knowledge.
